Supervision details

I offer supervision to counsellors/therapists and coaches (or any helping/caring professional including DSL's) enabling a protected safe space to reflect on professional practice, whilst supporting the personal wellbeing of the supervisee.

As a Chartered Psychologist and Pluralistic Counsellor I have trained and specialised in a number of areas around stress management, the mind-body connection and the neuroscience behind meditation giving the supervisee a diverse range of skills and tools to enhance their own coaching practice.

To learn more see our article on becoming a Chartered Coaching Psychologist - https://www.rccs.org.uk/post/chartered-coaching-psychologist

In addition to my experience I have completed the SDS Essentials and Advanced Clinical Supervision course which allows me to be on the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors.

The most frequent approach I use for supervision is Proctor’s 3 Function Interactive Model.

This is broken into three areas:

§​FORMATIVE FUNCTION (Learning) – supervision is
concerned with developing the skills, abilities and
understandings of the supervisee.

supervision explores and reviews how the supervisee responds
emotionally to the stresses of the work.

§ NORMATIVE (Accountability) – supervision
concerned with maintaining and ensuring the safety and
effectiveness of the supervisee’s practice work.
