  • >Supervisor Rachel Allen. Counsellor, Supervisor & CYP Supervision

I am a qualified supervisor, who enjoys working creatively.  I have a PostGraduate Diploma in Consultative Supervision from University of South Wales and experience of supervising both qualified and trainee counsellors, working with a broad range of issues.  I aim to offer a supportive, reflective and creative space for you to explore your work and its impact on you.  

While I have worked extensively with adult clients in various settings including private practice, I have particular experience of supervising therapists working with children and young people, including play therapists and school based counsellors.  Having worked in schools for several organisations, both as a counsellor and as a supervisor and counselling project manager, I have a good understanding of the systemic issues that can present when working in these settings.  I currently also supervise therapists working for Help! Counselling.

I find that using creative techniques can be so helpful and, if you are interested in doing, so would support you to explore this way of working in supervision.  I find this fits well with my integrative approach, which is based on a humanistic view of relationship, informed by systemic and psychodynamic thinking.  I also lecture in counselling at degree level, and welcome trainee counsellors as supervisees.

I am always happy to meet prospective supervisees for an exploratory session, to get a sense of whether we might be able to work together.  Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss this further.  I charge £50 per hour for supervision and can offer concessionary rates to trainee therapists or if you are working on a low income - please ask for details.

I offer individual and group supervision.  If you are interested in joining a creative supervision group please let me know, as I'm currently exploring setting this up.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
