Supervision is an important part of a counsellors clinical practice, ensuring that they have the time and space to reflect on their work and receive input from a senior practitioner to aid their growth and development and to keep them and their clients safe. I'm committed to providing high quality supervision and I believe that good supervision has the following functions:
Enabling you to present and review your work and to receive support, constructive feedback and guidance.
Helping you develop knowledge, skills and competence by reflecting on how you are working.
Identifying and monitoring professional learning and development needs, interests and goals and exploring how these could be met.
Constructively discussing the resolution of any conflict that may arise between us (the supervisor and the supervisee) and/or other agencies involved.
Providing space for more general reflection on the impact and experience of the work.
Supporting your overall growth in confidence, competence, and creativity as a counselling practitioner.
