As a supervisor, I offer facilitative supervision to qualified, trainee counsellors and other healthcare professionals. I work using the Person Centred Approach and as such, promote the core conditions, in a safe, supportive, encouraging environment.
I believe in the well being and safety of both the supervisee and their clients, therefore aim to build the type of supervision relationship, where you feel able to bring the whole of you.
I look to promote your control over your professional practice, respect your ability and responsibility to make decisions and changes in your work that reflect your beliefs and values. Support you to develop your practice at your pace, monitor, maintain, enhance your professional competence, offer you supportive challenge that enables you to reflect at depth on issues affecting your practice or world.
I am an individual member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), In which I adhere to the ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy and am subject to its professional conduct procedure.
The Ethical Framework defines supervision as:
“A specialised form of mentoring provided for practitioners responsible for undertaking challenging work with people. Supervision is provided to ensure standards, enhance quality, advance learning, stimulate creativity, and support the sustainability and resilience of the work being undertaken.”
Supervision offers you a reflective space in which to develop practice and so benefits client safety. All aspects of your practice should be open to supervision.
