If you are a counsellor and are looking for counselling supervision, why not get in touch to see if I might be a good fit for your supervision needs? My way of working draws on the person-centred, focusing-oriented and emotion-focus approaches and I have worked extensively as a supervisor with counsellors from different working contexts and philosophical orientations and with varying levels of experience.
I believe that supervision is one of the most important aspects of counsellor self-care and ongoing professional development. I think that your choice of supervisor will be fundamental to you being well-supported in your practice. That might be me, or it might be someone else, but whoever it is, my hope is that they will provide a nurturing and creative space for you to process your work, attend to your self-care needs, explore ethical issues and draw out new learning.
My own approach to supervision is influenced by the Seven-Eyed Model of Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet, and the series of books Freedom to Practise edited by Keith Tudor and Mike Worrall. The seven-eyed model includes a focus not only on the client and their process, but also on the counsellor's process, their relationship with their client and supervisor, and the wider life context in which they are practising. In my way of offering supervision, I am particularly attentive to counsellor wellbeing and inner process, because I think that both are important as the foundation of the counsellor's work with clients. I strive to offer a style of supervision that is collaborative, affirming and respectful of the relationship as a space for two-way learning.
