Keren Richardson - Counsellor and Supervisor (BACP Accredited).
I offer a safe space to help you reflect on your work with clients, including work with children and young people. I aim to develop a collaborative working relationship with you, so you feel safe enough to openly explore any thoughts, feelings and experiences about your work, without judgement. In supervision we explore your client work together to help us understand your clients better and improve your work with them. This includes exploring any issues arising from sessions, celebrating progress and success, discussing any difficulties, blindspots or ethical dilemmas, increasing your self-awareness and resilience, and thinking about ways to facilitate positive changes in your clients and improve their wellbeing.
How I work
I provide purposeful supervision to counsellors, teachers and those in helping professions. My relational, integrative and creative approach to supervision enables flexibility in my thinking, helping me adapt to individual learning styles and different therapeutic orientations. I have the fullest commitment to offering a service which is welcoming to all backgrounds in a supportive and non-discriminatory manner. My integrative approach to counselling underpins my supervisory practice. This includes person centred values, alongside relational and systemic thinking. I work within the guidelines of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework and negotiate a working contract before embarking on our journey together.
