Clinical supervision for counsellors, psychotherapists and the helping professions
I hold a certificate in clinical supervision and offer supervision to trainee, novice and experienced counsellors, psychotherapists, and helping professionals working with a similar field. Sessions will be based in my own private consulting room between Leicester and Market Harborough, just off the A6.
What makes good clinical supervision?
Supervisees are encouraged to work with me in a reflective, learning environment. The supervision is based on a number of 'models' of practice so that I can offer supervision to a wide range of professionals regardless of their theoretical base or working environment.
I aim to help supervisees explore the 'uncomfortable' or difficult moments in their work in an open, non-judgmental way as well as celebrating the successes of their work. By encouraging a shared learning experience I intend to help develop a understanding of their practice that is ethical, client-focussed and 'real'.
I can also offer clinical supervision to professionals working in other helping professions - such as schools, charities, healthcare, social work, criminal justice system. Having clinical supervision is good practice and helps towards minimising vicarious trauma or symptoms of burnout, so it is well worth attending clinical supervision for those that work in the helping professions. I can offer clinical supervision at my consulting room near Market Harborough, and I may be able to offer in-house professional support at your organisation, or place of work. Please contact me to arrange an initial appointment to discuss your supervision needs.
Fees and frequency
The fee for clinical supervision is between £40-£50 per hour.
For counsellors and psychotherapists I work within the guidelines set by BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). The BACP accreditation minimum supervision requirements are 1.5 hours per month. However, the frequency and length of supervision will depend on your individual needs and experience. Often those who are in training, counsellors that have high caseloads or those that work primarily with trauma may need more supervision than the minimum requirements. Do get in touch to discuss your supervisory needs.
There are a number of helping professions that may not officially require clinical supervision, however it may well be good practice to have this in place, so do get in touch to see how I can work within your organisational needs.
