supervision in counselling and mindfulness

I deliver two types of supervision: supervision to psychological therapists and supervision to practitioners/tutors of mindfulness.

Mindfulness supervision is an opportunity to have a regular space between the supervisor and supervisee to enable reflection on the supervisee’s mindfulness teaching and practice. The process is dedicated to deepening understanding and to developing the effectiveness, integrity and safety of the supervisee’s application of mindfulness, both personally and in their working life

Regarding mindfulness I adhere to the Good Practice Guidelines in mindfulness see https://mindfulnessteachersuk.org.uk/pdf/GPG4-TrainersfinalOct2013.pdf

For details of mindfulness supervision please go to http://mindfulnessteachersuk.org.uk/ for a comprehensive account.

In the context of therapy, I have a background in delivering clinical supervision to individuals and groups; I was trained as a supervisor within Relate and delivered supervision there for 10 years to therapists who worked in mental health settings, schools, Sure Starts, domestic violence contexts with individuals, couples, young people and families.

My principle modalities therapeutically are psychodynamic and systemic, though originally I was trained in the Person Centres Approach. I bring an integrated approach to my work as a supervisor, and would say that my overall approach fits with the The Seven Eyed Supervision Model constructed by Shohet and Hawkins, see http://www.livingtherapy.co.uk/seven-eyed-model

I see supervision as a relationship which supports fellow professionals with the multiple ethical and moral challenges the profession presents us with, being available both face to face and by telephone when necessary. This, then, can carefully explore the therapeutic alliance whilst sharing theoretical hypotheses, issues of safety and risk, and also to promote both client well-being and counsellor development and awareness.

I welcome any individual to contact me if you are looking for a Supervisor and offer an initial meeting free of charge to assist you in choosing an important individual to support your clinical work and development.

Supervision times are flexible based on practitioner needs in differing workplace settings and can be offered via face to face, telephone or via skype

Fees: Qualified therapists £40 per hour   Trainees: upon request

Mindfulness supervision: £30 per 30 minutes
