Regularly supervision for both trainee counsellors and experienced practitioners are an essential requirement for therapeutic work with clients and provides a space for practitioners to work as effectively, safely and ethically as possible. (BACP, 2018) I provide supervision in accordance with the BACP ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy. My approach I work from a person-centred perspective and my approach to supervision is relational. You can expect an empathic relationship that is authentic and accepting as well as an appropriate level of challenge. I am mindful of supervisee’s level of experience and development and will work with you at that level. For example trainee counsellors will have different needs from experienced counsellors. I am also open to working creatively using a range of art materials, toys picture cards etc. The space I offer values, creativity, difference, diversity, vulnerability, presence, ruptures and collaborative repair. In a safe and co-created relationship I believe supervisee’s can:
Become aware of blind spots which can be explored safely Work with ethical dilemma without the threat of being judged Work more confidently with difference and diversity for example in relation to race, culture, class and sexuality Explore self-care issues Recognition of areas for development and as well acknowledging strengths
