Dr Keith Abbott, MA, MBACP (Accred), Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor
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 ***
I 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
Person-centred supervision offers 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 person centred counsellors and trainees although I welcome working with counsellors of other approaches and modalities as well as non-counsellors.
While in supervision I am conscious that there will be times when most supervisees will ask for or require “guidance” , you can expect that the majority of our time 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 which allows you to develop your own ways of working well with your own clients.
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. Monthly supervisions can for example be scheduled in 1, 1.5 or 2 hour units with the possibility of additional support when needed, including by telephone or online though my personal preference is to work face to face.
