Maria Malone Counsellor & Supervisor, EMDR Trauma & PTSD Specialist
I provide clinical supervision to counsellors and professionals from a variety of settings. My approach to supervision is person centred and experiential which requires a collaborative perspective to enable reflection and conceptualisation, trusting the supervisee's internal power and resources. There is an assumption that the supervisee has the resources to successfully develop as a therapist. The supervisor is not seen as an expert in this model, but as a “collaborator” with the supervisee.
In this model of supervision, it focuses on the supervisee's personal and professional development, their responses to this and the relationships within their work. I provide a safe, confidential environment for the supervisee to do this. It is important for the supervisee to be able to reflect upon and discuss their practice openly and with confidence. It is about providing an environment whereby the supervisee can deepen their understanding of themselves, their clients, challenging professional issues that may arise and to unlock their own inner resources in order to integrate new skills into their professional practice.
This quote from Carl Rogers sums up what supervision means for me.
"I am most impressed with the fact that each human being has a directional tendency toward wholeness, toward actualisation of his or her potentialities......if I can provide the conditions that allow growth to occur, then this positive directional tendency brings about constructive results."
Carl Rogers, A Way of Being.
I hold a Certificate in Person-Centred Supervision. I can work with qualified and student therapists.
