Supervision details

Person-Centred Supervision I am committed to the person-centred approach and offer person-centred supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists, and trainee counsellors. I also offer supervision to other professionals,  workers and amateur/lay people who may benefit from the reflection and self-development that supervision may offer them in their chosen work or activities.   *** At present due to the COVID-19 pandemic I am only offering supervision by online video / audio chat or telephone *** QualificationsI have a Post Graduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision. Please see my counselling profile on this website for more information about me and my other qualifications and experience.  A little about person-centred supervision with me A a supervisor I offer you the opportunity to develop yourself as well as your professional practice through a supportive supervisory relationship in which we can work collaboratively on whatever personal and practice issues you choose to bring. This approach to supervision may particularly suit humanistic and person-centred counsellors and trainees  although I welcome working with counsellors of other/mixed modalities as well as non-counsellors. The majority of our time in supervision will be spent working on and exploring the personal and practice issues you want to address collaboratively  as a joint venture together and in a manner very similar to being in person/centred counselling. This allows you to develop your own ways of working well with your own clients. Nevertheless, as a supervisor I also at times offer guidance from my own knowledge, experience and responsibilities to you and others.  I am also here to offer and provide emotional support for you and your practice. Practicalities Supervision sessions can be arranged for individuals and groups – fees available on request. Supervision hours will be clock hours in duration, not 50 minute sessions as are many therapists’  therapy hours. We will meet monthly for at least 1 or 1.5 hours each month with the possibility of additional support when needed, including by telephone or online. I see each supervisee as having unique needs and as facing unique challenges.  How we work together therefore needs to be adaptable and I welcome reflection and discussions about how our supervision is working and meeting your needs with a view to making improvements in how we both work together if we can.
