I see my role as a supervisor as one of working collaboratively with you to facilitate your reflection on your work and your congruence in it, underpinned by my person-centred and pluralistic philosophy to life and practice.
Through the supervision process and the activities within it, I expect that my supervisees will increasingly bridge gaps (where relevant) in their understanding between theory and practice, reflect on their work and review alternative perspectives, take fresh ideas back into their client work, wrestle with and probably untangle some ethical dilemmas, feel refreshed and reinvigorated in themselves, and grow both professionally and personally.
In my experience as a supervisee, when the balance between my client’s welfare and my own wellbeing/personal and professional development have been in harmony, I have experienced supervision as being positive: this is what I hope to offer to my supervisees.
Before our first session together, we'd most probably have had an initial consultation and I'd have sent you some onboarding emails which would include practical information that you might need as well as a working agreement and consent request for you to review.
Therefore, in the session itself, we will be working with whatever it is you want to focus on after clarifying/renegotiating aspects of the working agreement to suit us both.
Just like counselling/psychotherapy, the supervisory relationship is vital. Therefore I like us to factor in a review after our first 3 sessions together to determine how comfortable both parties feel regarding continuing working together.
I'm open to working face-to-face-in-person (as long as the guidelines permit) as well as remotely by video calls or telephone.
The next step is for you to send me a message to arrange a no obligation complimentary initial consultation. Let's get the ball rolling and see how it goes...
My *fees for Supervision is as follows: £35 for up to 30minutes; £65 for up to 60 minutes; £85 for up to 90 minutes.
(*I am open to discussing concessions with people who, due to current financial constraints, might not be able to otherwise access supervision.)
