Most professional bodies require Counsellors, therapists and practitioners to be in regular supervision. Working under supervision means that a counsellor/practitioner uses the services of another counsellor/practitioner to review their work with clients, their professional development and in some cases their personal development too. Supervision helps to ensure high standards. It is a professional service not a management role.
I offer supervision to both Counsellors and student Counsellors. I also work with practitioners of other professions and support them in their work, exploring issues that may have arisen for them during their professional practice. I provide supervision individually or in groups. I am trained in both Supervision and Clinical Supervision.
I provide consultative supervision, personal development, independent support and mentoring. During our supervision time I will offer challenge as well as support, my aim is to heighten self-awareness and to encourage reflection.
I feel that supervision is a collaborative way of working between the supervisor and the supervisee. The overall aim is provide both the space and opportunity for reflection. I also believe that supervision is essentially led by the supervisee and that the supervisor's role is that of consultant and facilitator.
I have a University of Gloucester Post-Graduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision.
My experience covers a variety of contexts including: private practice, charities, schools, the commercial sector and the medical and legal professions. I draw on a number of theories, thus my approach is Integrative.
Devon - I offer supervision for individuals in Colyton, East Devon. Group supervision can take place in either Colyton or elsewhere in East Devon..
