Supervision is an ethical requirement for all counselling practitioners who engage with clients.
A very warm welcome to you - If you are looking for an experienced, curious, creative and compassionate supervisor than we can work together, for the benefit of your clients and for you as a practitioner.
The time and space focuses on supporting you as a practitioner and your development as a counselling practitioner; tailored to the skills and experience of each practitioner. Whilst stretching and gently challenging to understand all you undertake with clients and your skills, awareness and knowledge.
Collaboratively we will foster your professional development. The supervision relationship is specific to your counselling work.
I offer supervision within a framework of the Process model of supervision, from a Rogerian Person-centred foundation within an Integrative delivery. I may use concepts from CBT, Solution Focused, (SF), Trauma and Strength based philosophies for example.
The supervision space Is a dedicate space for you to share and explore your work with clients.
My philosophy is there is no right or wrong, good or bad way to counsel clients there is ethical & unethical, lawful and unlawful, healthy and unhealthy ways.
As you can see from the above statement I believe the pendulum can and does osculate between extremes and to be a robust counsellor we need to slow the osculation and find the middle ground. That is work, rest, play, sit and deliver from a balanced, consistent and competent position; within a self belief as a counselling practitioner.
I offer a compassionate and caring space to review, critically evaluate and reflect upon all dimensions of your work; your professional development and to ensure you are not left to carry client issues alone.
Clinical Supervision is essential for effective, safe and ethical counselling practice, it is a working alliance which focuses upon the practitioners counselling work. It exists to protect clients and for the practitioner to share their work enabling transparency, gaining a new or different perspective. It is also a space for development, understanding ethical decision making, working through ethical dilemmas and support.
The way I work - Working creatively within the Process Model of the 7 eyed model; of Shohet and Hawkins. Integrated with aspects of the Developmental Model of Cal D. Stoltenberg, Ph.D.; who offer structured stages in which to understand the different stages we as supervisee process through in becoming all that we can become.
An experienced supporter of students, volunteers and professional colleagues in supervision since 2005. My strength is understanding theory and how it relates to and plays out within relationships; theory is the underpinning of all counselling work adding structure, direction and motivation.
Supporting colleagues working with a myriad of client issues from effects of trauma, abuse, loss following death, loss of identity and a sense of self and loss through ill health. Supporting practitioners working with clients experiencing domestic abuse, sexual violence, healing from unhealthy relationships and childhood sexual abuse. Supporting Practitioners involved in palliative care, bereavement support, bereavement counselling and serious crime and all forms of trauma and all areas of general counselling.
Colleagues working within agencies such as Mind, Cruse, Alcohol services, Schools counsellors, Careers and Hospices. Colleagues working in Private Practitioners and more.
