Supervision details

Your safe space to offload, get unstuck, and find a way forward

When you’re a counsellor, you’re helping your clients through some of their most difficult or traumatic times. 

From grief to abuse. Addiction to health diagnoses. Sexuality and identity to trauma. No two clients or situations are ever exactly the same. 

It’s a privilege, but also demanding. 

You can’t talk to your friends and family about your work. The responsibility can weigh heavily on you. There are times when you feel stuck, unsure how to proceed with a client or doubting the effectiveness of your work together. 

(Even more so if you’re new in your counselling career.)   

Supervision is super important

Of course, It’s not just important. Clinical supervision is mandatory for your professional body. 

It should be a safe space where you feel supported and comfortable to talk about anything in your practice. 

Your progress. Your struggles. Your mistakes. And where you’re pushed out of your comfort zone.

So that when you leave, any anxieties have melted away and you feel more confident and unburdened.  

You should feel comfortable with your supervisor
Because, if you can’t be honest with your supervisor, what’s the point in supervision?  When you’re honest and open, both you and your clients benefit.

Could we be a good match?

In clinical supervision sessions, my aims are to: 

  • Put you at ease and create a safe, non-judgemental space where you can offload. Ask questions. And talk freely about your work 
  • Empower you to decide the plan for the session 
  • Manage the time carefully so you’re covering everything you need to
  • Challenge your thinking and push you (gently and kindly) out of your comfort zone 
  • Provide you with additional resources, theories and reading to support your professional development
  • End the session so you leave satisfied. Your goals have been met and it’s been useful 

There’s not a lot I haven’t seen and I’m not easily shocked - I have experience of working across a wide range of counselling clients.

In addition to Teign Talk, I work part time for the NHS (at Channel View Surgery Group, Teignmouth), and I have worked with the Intercom Trust to provide counselling for LGBTQ+ clients and as a volunteer counsellor with Andy’s Man Club – I really support their work to encourage men to talk. 

I have the NCPS Advanced Specialist Diploma in Supervision (Level 6 equivalent) and an Advanced Professional Diploma in Counselling Theory and Therapeutic Practice. I am an accredited registrant of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society and am on a register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. I am fully insured.

And (if it helps your decision-making process 😀), when I’m not supervising or counselling, you can find me either:
