I am a qualified clinical supervisor and work for counselling training providers and charities providing clinical supervision for professionals, including frontline workers, qualified and students counsellors on an individual and group basis.
My approach is integrative and relational, drawing on the Seven Eyed Process Model developed by Hawkins and Shohet (2006) to offer you a collaborative and safe space in which to explore your clinical work.
Due to many frontline working roles becoming increasingly challenging, professionals can find themselves struggling with difficulties such as vicarious trauma, burnout or stress and the impact on workers can be huge. Being able to provide a safe, confidential space for professionals to off load, can help to reduce, stress, time off work and provide a sense of wellbeing.
During supervision I will explore self-care as this is something that is often forgotten when work and family life is so busy. We can also explore various exercises and techniques which can be used in everyday working life to help reduce the signs of stress and burn out.
Supervision for Counsellors is offered fortnightly or monthly and for frontline professionals on a basis to meet their needs.
