Integrative Supervision Sessions
Individual & Group - Face to Face, Online (VSee, Zoom & Skype)
I provide weekly, fortnightly or monthly face to face or online Supervision sessions.
Supervision is an essential way for me to help you as a counsellor to develop and sustain a professional practice. I will provide you with regular and ongoing opportunities to reflect in depth about all aspects of your practice.
I will support you to work as effectively, safely and ethically as possible.
As a Supervisor I will also help you to develop the personal resourcefulness required to undertake every part of client work.
Supervision is much more than case management. It includes working in depth on the relationship between yourself and your client in order to work towards desired outcomes and positive effects.
This requires adequate levels of privacy, safety and containment for you as my supervisee to undertake this work.
I offer a supportive environment where you can regularly discuss and reflect on your work openly without direction or judgment.
The focus of supervision may include client's material, you as the counsellor's process, theory, ethical issues and self-care.
My aim is to support you with your needs, to enable you to experience more awareness, confidence and ethical competence to provide clients with the best possible therapy as well as assisting and supporting your professional experiential development.
I will encourage a professional developmental practice, exploring ongoing research, I find this helps me to stay informed, to enhance, improve, maintain and provide the very best possible standards of practice.
I work with a range of modalities to help you to develop your own unique way of working. I will support you to experience confidence and growth in your personal development and client competency, embracing your client work with a healthy curiosity and focus on strong client relationships.
Together we will explore vulnerabilities and struggles, difficult issues, that may come up through challenging work, explore all transferences, implicit and explicit challenges, parallel processing, blind spots.
I will help you to focus on your client needs, to develop heightened personal self-awareness, to tune into parallel processing, explore differences around thoughts, feelings, emotions, and patterns of behaviours, whilst maintaining strong boundaries.
I will support you to process any personal or client-based challenges to enhance your awareness and engage effectively always developing with your own unique way of working professionally with your clients.
I will also help you to maintain professional client boundaries, develop relational skills, acknowledge challenging issues and focus on your developing needs.
You will begin to experience relational growth and confidence as you develop as a competent, practicing therapist.
Professional developmental research is imperative to help us to stay informed, to enhance, improve, maintain and provide the best possible standards of practice.
There is so much to be gained from a confidential supervision group.
The main advantages are that while I support your individual development you
will also learn from each other as you share valuable developmental processes and support each other.
(build structured, boundaries, safe, trusting, empathic, non-judgmental therapeutic relationships with your clients, in private practice, group practice or placement)
If you receive group supervision, the amount of time you can record for accreditation depends on the number of people contracted to the group. The rule is:
for groups of up to four – half the time allotted
(so for two hours of supervision each member can claim one hour)
for groups of more than four – divide the amount of time by the number of people
(so for two hours of supervision, a group of six can claim 20 minutes each)
