Supervision

Since 2001 I have enjoyed offering supervision to a wide variety of people.  I’ve supervised many counsellors and caseworkers.  I welcome counsellors who work in organisations or in private practice, as well as community workers and case-workers who are based within agencies.  As well as supervising people in my private practice, here are a few agencies I’ve offered supervision to:

  • Central Manchester NHS Trust
  • St Ann’s Hospice
  • Women’s Aid
  • Victim Support
  • Freedom From Torture
  • Survivors Manchester

I believe that a collegial approach to supervision brings out the best in us, as I enjoy working alongside, rather than overly directing supervisees.  This is because I believe that we all bring our own life and work experience to our sessions – giving us a rich pool of resources to use as we work together.

I follow the ‘BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy’ to ensure good supervision practice.

As with Counselling clients, I offer an introductory session, free of charge, for us to meet and see if we can establish a working alliance.

Here’s a clip by Robin Shohet and Joan Wilmot, describing what supervision is:
