As a supervisor I work with trainee and experienced counsellors and psychotherapists. Working collaboratively I offer professional supervision, working alongside, supporting, sharing experience, nurturing good practice and motivating you in your professional work and your personal development.
With a person-centred approach, my work is underpinned by Hawkins’ and Shohet’s ‘Seven-Eyed Supervisor’ process model, where we focus on the client, how and what they present, along with exploration of the strategies and interventions used by you, the dynamics between you and the client, whilst also focussing on you as a counsellor and the interpersonal relational experience between us as supervisor/supervisee. Within this process we also consider the wider context in which the counselling and supervision take place including culture, difference and diversity.
I also work with Inskipp and Proctor’s ‘3 Tasks of Supervision’ model, focussing on working ethically and safely, offering my experience whilst recognising and celebrating your knowledge and interventions. This model offers valuable space for you to offload and discharge held emotions and to rummage and explore different ways and possibilities of working with the client.
I offer online supervision via Zoom or Skype and telephone contact if something serious comes up between supervision sessions.
Qualified Counsellors: £50 per 60 minutes pro rata
Trainee Counsellors: £40 per 60 minutes pro rata
Qualified counsellors can split their monthly supervision requirement as they wish, with the minimum session length being half an hour.
Trainee counsellors can split sessions as above, bearing in mind the ethical requirement for supervision every 2 weeks with a minimum of 1.5 hours per calendar month (up to 3 clients) with a ratio of 1 hour of supervision for every 8 hours of client work. For each additional client an extra half an hour of supervision must be added.
Supervision sessions are online via Zoom or Skype. It is important that our sessions are private and confidential and that other people around you are aware of the need for privacy and not enter the room that you’re in.
