Counselling Supervision

Counselling supervision is an important, essential part of working as a supervisor yourself, or as a counsellor/counsellor in training. 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, and compassionately, 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 which to explore professional dilemmas, ethical considerations and relationships. I hope to be present with you to support an understanding of yourself and of clients' processes. There can be so much joy in the reflective habit in a supervisory relationship, as we deeply explore our own experiences of our practice. Beyond our professional and ongoing trainings lies the fabric of who you are. To you, I hope to bring who I am and meet you there in a place of transparency and openness.

My supervision work is underpinned by the BACP Ethical Framework and I commit to my own supervision.
