I have been practising as a supervisor for 6 years. I am passionate when it comes to client work and I am equally as passionate and committed with regards to supervision practice.
Supervision is an opportunity whereby the supervisee, client and supervisor embark on a journey together. The client is in the driver’s seat, the supervisee in the passenger seat and the supervisor in the back seat. My role as the supervisor is to observe the journey, to explore what you notice about the journey and the impact this may have on you, to highlight what I have noticed and explore your interventions. I will share my knowledge and experience with you and provide you with support, guidance and instruction, as well as encourage the development of your internal supervisor.
Supervision underpins Counselling practice as a whole and is a crucial component to supporting and developing both trainees, newly qualified and experienced therapists. It is considered best practice for qualified therapist to undertake a minimum of 1.5 hours of supervision per month. However, it is recommended that the amount of supervision received should be based on the individual therapist needs and their caseload.
I provide individual and group supervision and I use the Seven Eyed Process Model to inform my practice. If you are unfamiliar with this model, you may find it useful to review the diagram below:
I have been practising for over 10 years. During this period I have had many supervisors and I have experienced poor and high quality supervision. As a result, I consider it a privilege to be a supervisor and I recognise that it is essential to choose a supervisor that you feel you can connect with, be open and honest with, someone that can appropriately challenge you and is able to provide you with excellent support.
If you would like to receive guidance, direction, advice and grow and develop further in a safe, confidential, supportive and fun environment, please get in touch. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
