Supervision - Care for the caretaker
Supervision is an ethical requirement for all counselling practitioners who engage with clients.
I offer consultative supervision within a dedicate space for you to share and explore your work with clients. 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 enhance your skills, awareness and knowledge.
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.
Working creatively within the Process Model of supervision postulated by Hawkins & Shohet; I am 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.
