Fundamental to the provision of safe, ethical and competent counselling, supervision is vital to the practice and development of counsellors. Working with a counselling supervisor ensures you stay grounded, maintain professional and ethical boundaries and are regularly practising self-care. As your supervisor I offer integrative supervision to support your practice and development.
I have specialist training in the supervision of counsellors working with clients online and by telephone as well as face to face. This means I am uniquely placed to provide you with supervision to meet your blended needs in line with the BACP recommendation that it is 'ethically desirable to receive at least some elements of regular supervision by the same method of communication that is used with clients'.
I am an Integrative Therapist with a special interest in trauma focussed therapy. My core training was based on person centred and cognitive behaviour theories. I have a MSc in Psychology, a certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling, am qualified as a Rewind Therapist. My supervision approach is based on the Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision and is informed by the Integrative Developmental Model.
I work in a intergrative way, drawing on elements from all my trainings and experience. I will work with you in a flexible, collaborative way, based on your own modality. I aim to offer a supportive, enriching environment in which to provide an overarching pair of eyes to help explore what is happening in your work for your clients and yourself.
As a supervisor, I aim to provide you with a safe, non-judgemental environment that enables us to work together in a structured way, reflecting on your practice and supporting you in your work with clients. Using a Normative, Formative and Restorative approach ensures each session can be both supportive and challenging in a way that is flexible to meet your individual needs.
I work with UK based counsellors only and supervision sessions last 1.5hrs or more often if required.
