ProfileI have 20 years experience in supervising counsellors, psychotherapists and health professionals working in organisations and private practice.I see the process of supervision as a chain of empowerment I believe that by fostering the empowerment of the supervisees they in turn become more effective in facilitating their clients empowerment.The way I workWhat I enjoy about working with supervisees of different levels of experience: seeing practitioners learning and growing playing an active part in their increasing competence and confidence sharing my knowledge and experience having a collegial relationship with experienced practitionersI am using the 'Cascade' model of the supervisor's tasks: Normative taking responsibility for standards of work and ethical behaviour Formative sharing responsibility for further development of the supervisee in skills, knowledge and understanding Restorative providing a safe space for discharging emotions triggered by counter transference or organisational settings and discharging batteries Creative (my addition) providing the climate and tools for intuition and imagination to flourishAs an Integrative practitioner I am available to work with supervisees trained in many different modalities.ExperienceI taught and lectured at various colleges and at the University of Surrey,I have been working as external supervisor for the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust, Guildford and Farnborough College, the University of Surrey and the Primary Care Trust.I also supervise other supervisors.
