What is supervision?
Clinical Supervision is used in counselling, psychotherapy and other mental health disciplines to provide the space for mental health practitioners to reflect and discuss their caseload and professional issues in their practice.
The goals of supervision are:
- to improve and hone their skills as psychotherapists or counsellors,
- to help themselves understand the dynamics and things that might be going on with clients below the surface and are out of awareness and
- to develop the ways they work.
Supervisors are usually more experienced and specifically trained and are able to offer their insights, understanding etc. to the practitioners which will then guide their work forward with their clients.
In a similar fashion, coaching supervision is an opportunity for coaches working with clients to share, in confidence, their caseload and it is an activity where coaches can gain insight, support and direction for themselves thus also improving their work.
Who is supervision for?
Psychotherapists, counsellors, coaches and trainees in those areas.
What do I offer?
I am currently training to become a fully qualified supervisor so I am able to offer low-cost clinical or coaching supervision to Gestalt or integrative counsellors and psychotherapists and to life and executive coaches. The cost is £30 per session and the contract we draft is till the end of 2020. Please also be aware that I will ask for permission to record some of our sessions. That doesn’t affect confidentiality issues of your clients and all discussions are kept in the strictest confidence and cases are anonymised.
Anything else I should know?
Expect to discuss the contract and arrangements in the first supervision session. You are free to bring any issues that are troubling you from your practice and any areas that you want to evolve, along with your case work.
If you are ready to book a low-cost supervision session just use the contact page to contact me.
