I offer supervision to both trainees and qualified counsellors.
I completed my supervision training through Cruse, gaining an Ascentis accredited award in 2010. I spent two years supervising groups of bereavement volunteers with Cruse, and in 2014 started supervising bereavement volunteers at St Wilfrids Hospice, Eastbourne. I currently supervise two groups there.
In my private practice I provide individual supervision to students on the FdSc in Person Centred Counselling, University of Brighton, and also students on the BSc (Hons) in Person Centred Counselling. Having done this for several years now it means I’m familiar with the courses, the paperwork and the course requirements.
I also supervise qualified counsellors working in private practice, and being in private practice myself I can understand the challenges of this work.
I also supervise counsellors working with children and young people. I’ve worked as a counsellor with children and young people since 2008, initially with bereaved children and young people with Cruse, following their training in this area. I currently see children and young people in my private practice, with a range of issues, and of all ages – my youngest client was 5 years old, through to 18 year olds. Some of the counsellors I supervise work in school settings. I’m helped in this by my own experience as a primary school teacher, which means I have an inside understanding of this setting.
The supervision I offer is Person Centred. My focus is to offer the Core Conditions, so that supervisees feel safe to explore all aspects of their work. We explore both client content and therapist process.
