Supervision is an important space in any professionals practice where we are allowed to grow and be challenged, offload confidentially and be heard in a supportive environment. I work with counsellors, both experienced therapists and students in placements as part of their training. I am also able to offer regular supervision to clinicians, staff and managers in all areas of social care. I work in 1:1 or group settings and offer a consultant service to companies or organisations from a wider range of contexts wishing to look at supporting staff and promoting best practice and a nurturing environment.
I believe strongly that supervision should be about a free space where we are balancing support for practitioners with good challenge to help us to build our professional skills. As supervisor and supervisee, we collaborate to enable us to create a space in which reflection on our work and learning from those reflections can take place easily. My objective is to help you to develop your skills and offer the best parts of yourself in your practice with your clients.
I offer my work from a place where it is acknowledged that supervision is a process in its own right and is not linked to any particular way of working in therapy or practice. I consider my role to be as a facilitator of the process, supporter of your own learning which are building on the basis of a sound supervisory relationship between us.
