"Supervision is not done by the supervisor, but jointly between the supervisor and the supervisee." Hawkins 2007
Individual & Group Supervision
My style of supervision is consultative. I provide a space for you, whether you are a counsellor, psychotherapist or an allied professional to bring your client load, and consult with me about that work.
I aim to provide a compassionate, supportive environment which values curiosity and kindness. My intention is to provide a space where you can feel free to explore your work in a non-judgemental way.
As an Integrated counsellor and psychotherapist, I follow the Hawkins and Shohet 7 eye process model of supervision. I supervise contractually and relationally and work creatively and utilise objects, materials, worksheets, whiteboard as well as using metaphor. I hold in mind the three functions of supervision as outlined by Proctor. Namely; the formative, (educational) normative (ethical issues, the 'norms' of the profession and possible legal issues) and most importantly restorative (the effect of the work on the supervisee, personal issues, workload, time management and stress).
I value highly my one-to-one work with my supervisees, however group supervision has its' own benefits, including peer feedback and a multi layered approach to personal and professional development.
Supervision is available to both individuals and groups and contracts can be arranged on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis, depending on your caseload.
