Clinical Supervision

I believe that the purpose of Clinical Supervision is to support the Supervisee so that this in turn protects the best interest of the client. Supervision should provide a safe environment for you where you are supported, listened to and understood. I consider it essential that you feel comfortable enough within supervision to be self-reflective and to explore your client work openly, including areas that you are uncertain about that you may feel to be ‘mistakes’ or that you feel unhappy with. I would also like to help you to see and celebrate your successes. This may include material such as the relationships between you and your clients, any ethical issues and your own professional development. I work using an integrative approach.

Safe and boundaried

I understand that a warm, trusting and respectful relationship is likely to best support a collaborative supervisory process. I will work with you to create a safe and boundaried way of working to offer the possibility of free and creative work for both you and your clients.

I am interested and experienced in helping you to build and maintain a private Counselling or Psychotherapy practice and can help you to promote good business practice.
