I have completed my training with Counselling Tutor and am now able to take enquiries for Supervision sessions.
I am qualified to offer Online as well as face to face supervision; as I had already achieved my Certificate for Online work in 2019.
The model I am using is The Seven-Eyed Supervision Model, because this is a relational model.
I am also informed by the Integrated Developmental Model (IDM); as this offers a framework to consider skills, knowledge and experience against. This helps me to then consider the best way to help and support you.
I am passionate about counselling and place my own supervision, as a highly valuable activity that has supported my growth, as a professional therapeutic counsellor.
I have been working in Private Practice as an Integrative Counsellor for 4 and a half years now and have worked Face to Face and extensively Online, since 2019. I currently work Face to Face again now, alongside my Online Practice.
I use a range of Online mediums in my counselling practice, so am able to offer supervision, which facilitates the use of the mediums you are using for client work.
I believe it is important to use a varied approach to the delivery of my own supervision practice; to support me to keep my skills up to date. Therefore intermittently I will have my supervision using Text Messaging on the Signal Platform, or I will arrange a telephone session to practice and review my telephone skills; as well as meeting mostly on the more popular Zoom video calls.
The additional risks when working Online can be supported by me as an Online Supervisor and I am therefore aware of issues like the 'disinhibition effect', where clients may feel they have said too much and the impact this may have. Also considerations around a potential loss of connection in session, known as the 'Black Hole effect' and the impact this may have on the person at the other end.
Looking at this with you in Supervision can be helpful to manage the anxieties we have about potential loss of connection and provide an exploration of how you can have adequate back up plans ready to be responsive to your clients.
My face to face offer is available in the evenings only, whereas Online is more flexible.
