I provide high quality, professional and tailored non-managerial support supervision, individual or group, to counsellors and other practitioners in the helping professions.
In a high pressure, high stress working environment, the attritional wear and tear on the wellbeing of individual staff can often be lost in ‘habits’ and organizational culture of coping. Supervision provides a unique, confidential and supported space to explore, develop, process and resolve this impact. Supervision and counselling are very different concepts. What links the two themes is the approach taken, which in this case is ‘Rogerian’ or Person Centred.
The supervision itself would focus on the nature and impact of the work, helping to identify problems and explore effective solutions from a personal and a professional point of view, with due consideration to ethical and professional practice, and the potential impact on the well-being and safety of clients.
Supervision identifies both personal and managerial strategies for dealing with the pressure and challenges of client work. The approach is tailored to the needs and ways each person works best with, as identified in the initial one to one contracting session.
