Getting the right support for your clinical work is vital to preventing compassion fatigue, vicarious traumatisation and burn-out. Having a space to reflect on our practice is essential to the work.
Exploring the relationship with your clients in a safe and supportive environment can help facilitate new insights. The relationship I offer you as a supervisor is one of equals, as all relationships should be.
My training background has been with Bristol University and Severn Talking Therapy, I hold an Advanced Diploma in Relational Supervision and offer supervision either on a 1:1 or group basis, either individually or in an organisational setting. To date I have provided supervision for a variety of organisations in Bristol, and in private practice for a number of years.
I have extensive experience in the counselling field and I am currently the Counselling Services Manager of a low-cost therapy centre in Bristol. I manage around 60 therapists at different points in their training, providing supervision and facilitating continuing professional development workshops for counsellors and psychotherapists.
If you are just starting out or you are currently on placement and feel you would benefit from 1:1 supervision, I offer a reduced fee while you build your practice or work towards your qualification. Please get in touch for more details.
I am also offering group supervision (no more than 4 to a group). If you would like to join an existing group, or would like to create one with people you already know, (perhaps you are in a training institution and would benefit from having group supervision), please get in touch to discuss and arrange this.
I am also in the process of setting up an Equine Assisted Supervision group in Stroud. This will be Supervision for your Counselling/Psychotherapy practice with the aid of horses. No experience with horses is required, and can be for anyone practising, whether this is traditionally delivered, or Equine Assisted Therapy.
I am passionate about helping people make sense of their lives and fulfill their potential, and supporting those who do the same.
If you have any questions or would like to meet with me to see how we might work together, please get in touch on my ‘contact’ page.
