Most professional bodies require counsellors and therapists to be in regular supervision as this provides the opportunity for practitioners to explore and reflect upon their practice so that they are able to work ethically with clients to the best of their ability.   Although not a requirement for all the helping professions, supervision is nonetheless acknowledged as a valuable and important resource for practitioners.
Forming a good working relationship in supervision,  where there is trust and honesty, is a fundamental part of the process.   Such a relationship between supervisor and supervisee provides the framework in which to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, receive support, be affirmed, gain new perspectives, increase learning and enhance professional and personal development.
Supervision can be either individual or in a group and both have the potential to be a rich and inspiring process.  
As an experienced Supervisor I offer both individual and group supervision and work with:
  • Student counsellors and psychotherapists
  • Qualified and experienced counsellors and psychotherapists
  • Members of the helping professions
  • Voluntary agencies/charities
  • Group Facilitators
  • Teams
Do get in touch to discuss your supervision requirements.
