Supervision is a very important for counsellors and psychotherapists to have as part of their professional practice. Therapist’s go on a therapeutic journey with their clients. To inure they are managing caseloads and working with their limits of proficiency supervision is a vital part of the work. All our counsellors attend regular supervision and peer supervision.
In our counselling service we have four supervisors, this work independently so you have the choice of receiving one to one supervision in the centre or at the therapist’s private practice. One that is currently completing her training so able to offer this at reduced rate.
We also offer supervision for other helping professions for example: social workers, front line workers, police, health workers and teachers.
‘A working alliance between a supervisor and a counsellor in which the counsellor can offer an account or recording of her work; reflect on it; receive feedback and, where appropriate, guidance. The object of this alliance is to enable the counsellor to gain in ethical competence, confidence and creativity so as to give her best possible service to her client’. Inskipp and Proctor
