BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions (2018) states that supervision:
“is essential to how practitioners sustain good practice throughout their working life. Supervision provides practitioners with regular and ongoing opportunities to reflect in depth about all aspects of their practice in order to work as effectively, safely and ethically as possible. Supervision also sustains the personal resourcefulness required to undertake the work.”
(Good Practice Point 60)
I am able to offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists of all modalities. I am an integrative practitioner (person-centred, CBT and attachment) experienced in working with adults and young people, time-limited or open-ended, as well as referrals from Employee Assistance Programmes. I currently run a successful private practice, and have previous experience in a variety of settings – hospice, NHS-funded bereavement service, sixth-form college, high school and young person’s centre.
As a therapist I have always found my own supervision to be central to my work and to my clients’ wellbeing – a supportive, strengthening, and creative relationship which is ethical and rigorous too. And this in turn is what I aim to offer my supervisees – a collaborative, non-judgmental space in which to feel supported in exploring client work, aspects of professional and personal development, ethical issues, and to recuperate and re-energise. As a supervisor my work is guided by BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, Hawkins & Shohet’s 7-eyed model, and Page & Wosket’s Space and Focus.
Please do get in touch and we can explore together what you might need from supervision and whether I can offer you that.
