Claire Davey- Counsellor, Supervisor and Counselling Tutor for Students
About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified experienced supervisor and counselling tutor (to students who are undertaking a BA in Integrative Counselling). I hold a BPS Approved Certificate in Supervision and offer supervision to both qualified counsellors, psychotherapists, social and healthcare professionals and trainees.
My approach is humanistic integrative and I welcome working with therapists of all orientations. I offer a creative, confidential and supportive environment for you to explore your concerns and enhance your self awareness and professional development. I specialise in working with trauma (in particular rape and sexual abuse) and the impact this can have on therapists. I recognise the important of self care. I aim to work with you to identify your needs and to establish a pattern and style of supervision appropriate to you. I am committed to regularly reviews with you to ensure your potentially changing needs are being met and ongoing growth is encouraged.
I am able to offer regular supervision, consultation and professional support to those in training or who are looking for further support in their own therapeutic work. I am able to offer supervision in person or over the phone.
When considering my experience, I currently work part time as a counselling tutor at a local university and am the clinical supervisor for a rape crisis service in York. Prior to this I worked within the NHS for a number of years as a clinical lead within an IAPT service. This worked involved me supervising the supervisors work within the service as well as a number of counsellors, clinical psychology trainees on placements, and assistant psychologists.
