Geraldine S Newham, BA Hons, RMBACP. (Compass Counselling and Psychotherapy).
Using the Hawkins & Shohet seven-eyed model of supervision, I attempt to work authentically as a supervisor, to consider the context in which clients', supervisees' and supervisors' ideologies are formed and influenced.
I attempt to take into account the ethical, professional principles and guidelines surrounding the practice of effective supervision, using my skills, strengths, knowledge and weaknesses, aware of all the spoken and unspoken processes that come into play.
Whilst I practise as an integrative counsellor, I do not specify one approach that colours my supervisory practice - and I know I am still learning to become a better, more effective, more professional practitioner. My hope is both I and my supervisee will enjoy and grow through the experience of working together.
