Counselling Supervision

Counselling supervision is an important part of working as a supervisor yourself, as a counsellor,or during training as a counsellor. I enjoy the opportunity to work with students and I think this comes in part from once being a student counsellor myself,recognising the need for that type of relationship. In working with both trainee and qualified counsellors I have a desire to develop a trusting relationship, building a mutual power, with an important sense of the supervision relationship becoming open,encouraging,stretching and meaningful to you and the work you do. I am interested in exploring the issues that arise for counsellors during their therapeutic work, from your perspective.

“True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.” — Nikos Kazantzakis

I also feel focused on working collaboratively with supervisees to promote self care, to develop reflective practitioner skills and to support each person in becoming aware of blind spots and areas out of our awareness. It is an important relationship in enabling each person to explore professional dilemmas, ethical considerations and I hope to enable the therapist to understand themselves and their clients, in the work they do.

My supervision work is underpinned by the BACP Ethical Framework.
