Supervision

BACP Senior Accredited and Registered Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist offering sessions and supervision in Kings Heath and Moseley, Birmingham.

I particularly enjoy supervision as I feel it offers opportunities to enter even more deeply into assisting and supporting clients, and I value the opportunity of helping counsellors and therapists in doing the best work they are capable of.

There are a few different models of the purpose of supervision. I prefer the language of formative, restorative, and normative functions. These can be interpreted as supporting counsellors and therapists in developing the skills, understanding, and qualities needed to work with clients (formative); offering an opportunity to de-brief and reflect on their experience of this work (restorative); and providing an aspect of 'quality-assurance' by ensuring counsellors and therapists are working ethically and professionally (normative). [Page and Wosket, Supervising the Counsellor (Hove: Routledge, 2001), 63]

Having completed several thousand sessions with hundreds of clients, I have worked with a very wide range of presenting issues, personalities, and situations, and bring this experience to my work as a supervisor. I hold a Certificate in Supervision, and am currently completing a Diploma in Supervision at ReVision.

I offer supervision on a sliding-scale £40-£60 depending on what you earn and how often we meet. I am happy to offer supervision face-to-face or online.
