Qualifications : BA.Psychotherapy & Counselling I.A.C.P. Supervisor
Supervision as outlined and defined by BAC “Counselling Supervision is a formal and mutually agreed arrangement for counsellors to discuss their work regularly with someone who is normally an experienced and competent counsellor and familiar with the process of counselling supervision. The task is to work together to ensure and develop the efficacy of the supervisee’s practice...It should take account of the setting within which the supervisee practices... is intended to ensure that the needs of clients are being addressed and to monitor the effectiveness of interventions.” (BAC,1995;2,3) Effective supervision is a collaborative process between supervisee and supervisor, which provides a supportive and reflective space where the supervisee can examine their work in a nurturing environment. Within this setting the supervisee can gain confidence, and a deeper understanding of skills, and theory . This process will lead the supervisee to maximize the effectiveness of their work. As a supervisor I strive to work within the guidelines as set out by I.A.C.P. while bringing my own experience of working with a variety of clients. My experience includes working with depression, anxiety, relationship issues,eating disorders and many other traumas and difficulties .My own training in Psychotherapy and other relevant therapeutic applications mindfulness, and CBT are an integral part of my supervision style. With this combination I strive to provide an enriching experience for the supervisee engaging with me in supervision.
