Purpose of Supervision

Ongoing supervision of counsellors in training, experienced counsellors and mental health workers is widely recognised as both desirable and essential to the development of effective skills and attitudes and the maintenance of credible and ethical counselling services. Counsellors and people working in the field of mental health need professional supervision to support safety, help manage caseloads and to provide opportunities for reflective learning conversations and ethical practice. Supervision is also necessary to support the growth of the counsellor and health care worker's personal and professional identity.

What I can provide

I can provide regular professional supervision to counsellors, counsellors in training and people working in the field of mental health in a trusting, structured and confidential environment with the purpose of assisting them in their delivery of a safe, ethical and effective practice. I can construct  conversations that highlight the professional's strengths and learning areas in order to increase self-awareness and provide direction for further development. 

I can encourage open dialogue to monitor self-care, personal and professional boundaries. Through discussions I can enable the professional to work competently, respectfully and reflectively.
