Supervision offers an opportunity for us to be curious about our own practice, to contract with a supportive practitioner to explore the thoughts, feelings and ethics of our work in a confidential and theoretically congruent space. We do this in order to do our best for our clients, and to grow and develop as counsellors.
I have completed a Certificate in Clinical Supervision at the Northern Guild for Psychotherapy and Counselling in Newcastle, and I am currently working towards their Diploma in Clinical Supervision. I have also trained with Robin Shohet, exploring the Supervision Relationship.
I was originally trained in the psychodynamic/person-centred Dialogue at the University of Edinburgh, and have also completed the Foundation year of the TA Diploma, and an MSc in Counselling & Psychotherapy with Persona/Stirling University (person centred, with a focus on Mindfulness and Depression). I now work in an integrative way with an emphasis on core existential ways of being.
As a supervisor, I believe it is presence and ‘being with’ that forms the foundation on which we stand, in order to facilitate safe, ethical practice for the benefit of clients.
Supervision is £50 per 60 minute hour.
