Supervision details

I offer different levels of supervision to counsellors having a range of practitioner experience, based upon Stoltenburgh and Delworth's 4 stages of counsellor or supervisee development. The 4 stages of development in the Integrated Development Model (IDM) consists of a counsellor's experience progressing through three developmental stages or levels: Level 1, beginning; Level 2, intermediate; and Level 3, advanced. There is also a fourth level, 3i, in which the supervisee has achieved an integrated level of skills across all domains and structures. After the achievement of this last stage, counsellors may go on, after suitable training, to be supervisors themselves.

To facilitate the growth from a counsellor in training to fully fledged practitioners, I like Hawkins and Shohet's Seven-eyed Model of Supervision, shown by the following link.   https://qkprod.wpenginepowered.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Extended_The-seven-eyed-model.jpg

Seven-Eyed supervision is a process-oriented approach which integrates the relational and systemic aspects of supervision. It focuses on the relationships between client, therapist and supervisor, and takes into consideration the interplay between each relationship and their context within the wider system.

I really enjoy my supervision sessions with my supervisees, supporting them as they stretch their field of awareness of the counselling process and move through the different levels of the IDM when their competencies and confidence grows. Being part of this process is an additional bonus for me. Sessions can be serious, or dare I say it, fun?

If you are looking for a supervisor, whether you are in training or already a qualified counsellor/supervisor looking for a change, please contact me and see if we can work together. It may be beneficial to us both to share our experience.
