I offer counselling supervision to qualified and trainee therapists. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in the Supervision of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I usually work on a pattern of monthly supervision with sessions lasting between one and a half and two hours. Appointments can be during the day, or on an evening, according to our respective availability.
I believe in a supportive, collaborative and open supervision approach, including elements of challenge when helpful. I have personal experience of the usefulness and developmental aspects of the supervisory relationship in counselling and psychotherapy and in other professional human services contexts. I am influenced by Page’s and Wosket’s Cyclical Model and by Hawkins’ and Shohet’s Seven Eyed Supervision Model. My work is also influenced by perspectives which are informed by relational and social contexts. I see the supervision process as dynamic and evolving.
We will agree a supervision contract to support the work we do together. At the heart of this is the responsibility to your clients and the need to work ethically. Of course, your expectations and needs as a supervisee are also central to the supervision process. The contracting process will consider the expectations and requirements of the relevant professional bodies, such as the BACP, your employing organisation if relevant, and those of your educational institutions and courses if you are in professional training.
My supervision arrangements
I receive monthly supervision for my work from an experienced counsellor and supervisor who works in the NHS and privately. I am also a member of a peer supervision group.
I have many years of experience of providing supervision in Social Care and Social Work and related fields to students and qualified professionals. I have also provided management supervision in public and private organisations; this has included health professionals.
I offer external supervision to organisations for team members. I also do some consultancy work.
I charge £40 per hour and the same rate pro rata; from example a session which is an hour and a half long would cost £60.
