Leeanne Fowler - Confidential Counsellor MSc
People working in all of the helping professions are often lacking in personal support from their employer for the important and emotionally demanding work they do.
I prefer to think of the time we'd spend together as consultation rather than supervision. Supervision often has an authoritative component to it and employees feel unable and sometimes unsafe to explore the effects their work is having on them.
If we worked together you would find that the focus of our work would be talking about you so there are no issues with regards to breaching the confidentiality of your work. Burn out and vicarious trauma and our own personal histories can be significant in our work and I hope we'd develop a trusting relationship which helps you to keep going, to understand yourself and any triggers which need support and integration. There is no time limit to this work and the frequency and duration of sessions can be agreed and negotiated as we go.
