‘Supervision is a working alliance between two professionals where supervisees offer an account of their work, reflect on it, receive feedback, and receive guidance if appropriate. The object of this alliance is to enable the worker to gain in ethical competency, confidence, and creativity as to give the best possible services to clients’.(Inskipp and Proctor, 2001,)
I base my approach to Supervision on the principles of nurture, exploration, collaboration, and representation. Supervision is about you, your wellbeing, and staying safe as a practitioner; it is about exploring new ways of work, growing and developing your understanding of practice; it is about working together, pooling our resources to support your growth and your work with clients; it is about ensuring that you, as a practitioner, are representing the profession in the best possible light.
Naturally, my own Counselling approach influences my work, however, I am fascinated by the multitude of approaches within the Counselling community and highly value the individuality of my peers.
My rates for 1:1 Supervision
- Initial Session (a chance to interview me) – £30
- Trainee rate – £30 per session for the duration of training
- General rate – £45 per session
I require all Clinical Supervisees to be suitably qualified in their field (or working towards a professional qualification) and to be a current member of a professional body that holds a register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. Such as, but not limited to: the NCS, BACP, the ACC, etc.
As standard; I require evidence of this in our first session.
