Individual & Group Supervision
"Supervision is not done by the supervisor, but jointly between the supervisor and the supervisee." Hawkins 2007
My style of supervision is consultative. I provide a space for you, whether you are a counsellor, psychotherapist or an allied professional to bring your client load, and consult with me about that work. I hold in mind the three functions of supervision as outlined by Proctor. Namely; the formative, (educational) normative (ethical issues, the 'norms' of the profession and possible legal issues) and most importantly restorative (the effect of the work on the supervisee, personal issues, workload, time management and stress).
I value highly my one-to-one work with my supervisees, however group supervision has its' own benefits, including peer feedback and and a multi layered approach to personal and professional development. Details of fees and other arrangements are available on request and agreed collaboratively.
As an Integrated, Humanistic Counsellor & Psychotherapist I thought it important to choose Clinical Supervision training that adopted the same model. Therefore, in December 2009 I embarked on the CASCADE Supervision Diploma. It was originally set up by Francesca Inskipp and Brigid Proctor in the 1980s. At the end of 2010 I was awarded my Diploma in Clinical Supervision of Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Allied Professionals.
