During counselling supervision, I believe my role is to support and challenge you in order to help you build upon existing strengths and address any weaknesses.
I am able to supervise people at any stage of their counselling career, from those just entering the field, to practitioners who are vastly experienced, and this of course includes people working towards a counselling qualification.
I have nine years post qualifying experience as a humanistic counsellor, and although my supervision training certificate is psycho dynamic, I have both awareness and respect for different modalities. I am intrinsically humanistic, however, my psycho dynamic training has added an extra slant to my awareness and knowledge.
I understand that as counsellors we can feel pushed and pulled in many directions and at times, everything feels as if it is put into question. I aim to enable you to value your own ideas and feelings through discussion and exploration, so you can become more confident in the way you practice.
As a therapist myself, I am aware of my own need for regular supervision, and recognise how valuable it can be to ‘touch base’, and reflect on my own practice and emotional well-being.
