Description:

Maybe something has happened – such as the death of a loved one, or some other event or loss. Perhaps the current Coronavirus pandemic and the effect it is having on all of our lives is hard for you to cope with right now? Or you have other issues or changes you want or need to make.

Counselling and coaching both provide a safe space for you to explore issues, thoughts and feelings that you may be finding it hard to talk about with other people – or, perhaps, admit to yourself.

We can work together via video, phone/VoIP, live chat/IM or email - or a combination of these, depending on what suits you best.

Supervisory supervision

Supervision model I mainly use:

My favoured supervision model is Inskipp and Proctor’s normative, formative and restorative functions/processes – because it’s so simple and encompasses all the areas that I think are important:
• Formative/Educative is about developing the skills, understanding and abilities of the supervisee.
• Managerial / Normative provides the quality control of the work with clients and derives from the supervisor’s managerial and ethical responsibilities to ensure the client’s welfare.
• Supportive/Restorative is a way of responding to supervisees who have themselves become affected by the distress, pain and fragmentation of the clients.
During our work these aspects will all feature – but not always to the same degree, as we will tailor what we do and how we do it according to your personal needs, the priorities of the day and your clients.

Other models I am conversant with:

Page & Wosket Cyclical model
The seven-eyed model
Developmental and integrative models such as:
Novice, Apprentice, Journeyperson, Master craftsperson
the four stages of development:
Level 1: Self-centred
Level 2: Client-centred
Level 3: Process-centred
Level 4: Process-in-context-centred
Proctor's Typology for supervision groups.
