Supervision for counsellors/psychotherapists and professionals in related fields
About me and how I work
I've been supervising since 2014. I'm interested in developing a collegial relationship with supervisees. I aim to create a respectful environment where you can talk freely about and learn from your difficulties and triumphs. This way of working is informed by my training, and my own experience of not being judged but helped by my supervisor to examine experiences for continual - and optimal - improvement.
Supervision often addresses the interface of the professional and personal. Conversations may be about confidence and competency; decision-making; leadership skills; communication and interpersonal difficulties; barriers to progression etc.
Here is a copy of the Agreement that I discuss with clients in a first session.
You may have read this in other parts of the website: I use voice and video calls (via 'Zoom') to connect with clients and supervisees.
Here is a copy of the Online Working Agreement. It is information about how I work, including practicalities as well as my policy on upholding confidentiality, data protection and ethics. I tend to discuss this with clients in a first session.
Trainee therapists (supervisees)
With two and a half years experience as a trainer on a Counselling BA/Diploma, I'm familiar with some of the hurdles of being a trainee, and the work involved.
Per session I charge £75.
Frequency and number of sessions
Many opt for fortnightly sessions. In person I am available in East London (Leytonstone, E11). If we are not working on an ongoing basis I prefer to decide together the number of sessions.
If after meeting you don't feel comfortable with me I encourage you to 'shop around'. I believe (and evidence suggests) that the relationship between you and your supervisor is the most important factor in meeting your aims.
I'm available on weekdays; daytime and early evening.
