“Supervision is a place where a living profession breathes and learns.”
“Supervision in the Helping Professions.”
Hawkins and Shohet
I qualified as a supervisor in May 2014 from a BACP endorsed course run by Person-Centred Workshops in Colchester. Although I am Person-Centred and the course was run by Person-Centred Workshops, the training itself enables supervisors to work equally with Integrative and Psychodynamic therapists, too, as it focused on facilitating the supervisee to process their own work in the way that made sense to them.
As in counselling, I aim to provide a safe, caring and non-judgemental environment to which you can bring anything you are working with – or struggling with – in your work. And, of course, nothing is in isolation, so even personal events which may affect you in your work are also welcome into supervision, if you’d like to.
My training has enabled me to develop what I feel is a supportive and collaborative framework, as I see supervision as a learning relationship for both supervisor and supervisee. As counsellors, we understand the value of learning from the client, so why can we not learn from each other in supervision? So, if you like the kind of supervisor that shares information and is interested in what you might bring to share, that’s me!
