Supervision offers a reflective space in which to develop practice and so benefits client safety. All aspects of a counsellor’s practice should be open to supervision.
According to BACP guidance, Supervision is ‘A specialised form of mentoring provided for practitioners responsible for undertaking challenging work with people. Supervision is provided to ensure standards, enhance quality, advance learning, stimulate creativity, and support the sustainability and resilience of the work being undertaken.” (BACP)
We have several supervisors at Southside Counselling and Therapy Centre. You can contact them directly by clicking on their names and find out more about costs and how to book.
Pam is an experienced supervisor, and has a special interest in supervising work with couples.
She is also happy to supervise counsellors of individuals, whether experienced or counsellors in training.
I have been offering supervision to students and qualified counsellors since receiving the COSCA Certificate in Supervision in 2016. I very much enjoy this aspect of my work. I find it energising to support other therapists by providing a safe space for them to explore their work. I bring to the supervision process a wealth of experience of therapeutic work with children, families and individuals who have experienced a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties. I am particularly aware that counsellors require to be contained, nurtured and supported in their therapeutic work and I adopt the same consistent, gentle emotional holding which I use in my practice.
