I offer supervision remotely either by zoom / skype, telephone and also have face to face sessions with existing supervisees. Since we've all been working remotely for considerable time now, it may be that you would like to have some sessions in person and some remotely. This is something we can discuss, to see what will work best for us both.
If you are in training, I encourage you to see a supervisor who can work with you face to face - at least on occasion. What we do is relational and I find the mentoring nature of supervision supports working in a relational way much better if we can meet in person.
PURPOSE AND TASK OF SUPERVISION
I believe that the task of counselling supervision is to help us be the very best we can be for those with whom we work. In supervision I offer a space where together we explore the work you do with people and the impact that work has on you. We also look at ways of bridging what you have learned back into your client work. I believe my job is to help you develop your skills, knowledge and self-awareness as a practitioner. This means finding a balance between safety and challenge, where we work collaboratively together. My core approach is person-centered. I also draw on theory which helps us understand our clients from both a systems perspective (systemic family therapy) and also a psychodynamic perspective.
I have been supervising for twenty years. Over this time, I have supervised both trainees and experienced practitioners who counsel in a variety of settings including private practice and the NHS. I have been associated with voluntary counselling services for many years in various roles as a counsellor, manager, supervisor and trainer. All these roles have helped me to understand the challenges faced by counsellors, particularly those working in the voluntary sector.
I offer sessions in Sheriff Hutton, which is approximately 10 miles from York, Malton and Easingwold.
