Supervisor Paulette Gibson
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.
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
