 "We cannot choose where we start out in life, but we may finish where we will" Tony Judt. 

 

"Isolation exists only in isolation, once shared it evaporates"  Irvin Yalom.

Supervision


I offer supervision in three areas:

1)   Supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists:

I am accredited with the BACP as a supervisor of individual counsellors and psychotherapists and able to provide supervision by phone and on Skype. I have been supervising counsellors and psychotherapists since 1994.  I am interested in the focus of supervision work being on the therapist rather than the client - where they are getting stuck in their work with a client, and in finding creative ways to work through their difficulties.  

I am interested in humanistic supervision, focussing particularly on Gestalt, Formative Psychology, and the Therapeutic Alliance.  

2)  Work supervision:

I  offer work supervision for people who need support with their work outside of the therapy field. This may be in areas such as time management, team skills, making a transition in or out of paid work, developing negotiation skills, work/life balance.  I have run groups and worked with individuals in this field since 1987.

3)  Management training and consultancy supervision:

People working in this field often do not have access to support with their work.  I have done projects in management training and consultancy over many years in the public and voluntary sectors, and offer support in areas such as project management, bidding for work, delivering courses, dealing with participants who you find challenging.

 

Please e-mail me if you would like to discuss any type of supervision with me.
