Supervision is a mutually agreed contract for the monitoring and development of professional practice. It is a requirement for those engaged in counselling and psychotherapy and can also be beneficial and supportive for people in other professions.
How I work as a supervisor
I see the supervisory relationship as a working alliance and seek to provide a safe, confidential environment where my supervisees can give account of, and reflect on their work. Supervision is also a place to express and explore personal feelings which arise from practice and to receive feedback and guidance where necessary.
My supervisees and I have a shared responsibility for monitoring ethical good practice, maintaining standards and ensuring their continuing professional development.
My experience as a supervisor
Since 1998 I have worked as a clinical supervisor of counsellors, psychotherapists and other care-workers both individually and in groups. I have extensive experience of working with students on placement, novice and mature practitioners.
I am also an experienced provider of clinical supervision in organisations; formerly working in the NHS and was for 6 years contracted to a private acute psychiatric hospital for the supervision of psychotherapists.
How my supervision work is monitored
In accordance with BACP Guidelines, I am in continuing fortnightly individual supervision which provides regular consultative support to back up my supervision practice.
