Description:

Working together:

I provide purposeful supervision to counsellors, teaching staff and those in helping professions.  I offer a safe space to help you reflect on your work with clients, including work with children and young people.  I aim to develop a collaborative working relationship with you, so you feel safe enough to openly explore any thoughts, feelings and experiences about your work, without judgement.  In supervision we explore your client work together to help us understand your clients better and improve your work with them.  This includes exploring any issues arising from sessions, celebrating progress and success, discussing any difficulties, blindspots or ethical dilemmas, increasing your self-awareness and resilience, and thinking about ways to facilitate positive changes in your clients and improve their wellbeing.  I have the fullest commitment to offering a service which is welcoming to all backgrounds in a supportive and non-discriminatory manner.  I work within the guidelines of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework and negotiate a working contract before embarking on our journey together.

Description of my online supervision service: My relational, integrative and creative approach to supervision enables flexibility in my thinking, helping me adapt to individual learning styles and different therapeutic orientations. My integrative approach to counselling underpins my supervisory practice. This includes person centred values, alongside relational and systemic thinking. 
Supervision model I mainly use:

Hawkins and Shohet’s (2012) ‘seven-eyed’ model of supervision (SMS) influences my practice, including using transference and parallel processes. Additionally, play therapy guides my thinking, as supervisees working with children and young people (CYP) require different knowledge from adult therapy or supervision (Neill et al., 2006, p. 7), as it is not a ‘downward extension’ (Randall, 2007) of adult therapy or supervision, for example: helping supervisees manage CYP’s powerful projections and understand their non-verbal communications.

What media do you work with?:

Preferred way of working:
Webcam via a secure platform, such as Zoom.
I ask supervisees to open an encrypted email, for example: a protonmail account (which is free of charge and easy to use).
