Supervision - Care for the caretaker

Space & time for you

Supervision is an ethical requirement for all counselling practitioners who engage with clients.

I offer consultative supervision within a dedicate space for you to share and explore your work with clients.  The time and space focuses on supporting you as a practitioner and your development as a counselling practitioner; tailored to the skills and experience of each practitioner.  Whilst stretching and gently challenging  to enhance your skills, awareness and knowledge.

A compassionate and caring space to reflect upon all dimensions of your work whilst developing your professional role. 

Working creatively within the Process Model of supervision postulated by Hawkins & Shohet.  I am an experienced supporter of students, volunteers and professional colleagues in supervision since 2005.  My strength is understanding theory and how it relates to and plays out within relationships; theory is the underpinning of all counselling work adding structure, direction and motivation.

I specialise in supporting counselling colleagues  working with clients suffering effects from trauma, abuse, loss following death, loss of identity, self and loss through ill health, I specialise in  supporting counsellors working with clients  experiencing domestic abuse, sexual abuse, healing from Narcissistic relationships and Childhhood sexual abuse. Practitioners involved in  pallative care, bereavement support, bereavement counselling and serious crime and all forms of trauma.  

I have been both  paid and worked as a volunteer over many years with Cruse Bereavemnt Care,  Doncaster Alcohol services and a volunteer supporter with Victim Support Doncaster and currently engaged within a Hospice setting in the role of Supervisor, Counsellor and Bereavement program creator and facilitator.

The first 30 minutes of our meet and greet session will be free to ascertain if we can build a working alliance.  After which time you may stay for a further 60 minutes and utilise this time into a full supervision session.  There will be a minimum charge for the remainder of the session. 

If we both feel we can form a working alliance, we will negotiate our mutual expectations of the working relationship the contract will be written and signed by both parties as a professional framework in which to work and will be revisited and needs discussed within regular reviews.
