Supervision and Mentoring
Supervision is a space where you, as a fellow professional, can seek support and guidance for all levels of your work. Having a supervisor to talk things through with, or ask for help, can make a real difference between feeling isolated and connected. This is an opportunity for you to be open about any difficulties you are having, to celebrate when your work is going well and to generally have someone else to bounce ideas around with. The space I offer is one of collaboration and joint learning. I do not claim to be an expert, and I enjoy those times when we get chance to learn something new together.
I also offer mentoring within supervision which, we will tailor according to what you need. Our work will primarily be based on the wellbeing of both you and your clients, and our priority will be for you to feel supported in keeping yourself safe and ethical, and for your clients to receive the best of you. I will support your exploration into your client work and to look at any other needs as they arise.
On top of what might be called “usual supervision”, I also offer support and guidance with setting up and maintaining your private practice. In order to do this, I can share my experiences in starting and running my own practice. When I began this particular journey, I did not know where to turn in order to know where to begin. It is my belief that, as professionals, we are impacted by all areas of the work and I really enjoy being able to include this within supervision. We can work together on all levels, from building your website, deciding which directories to use, admin tasks, monitoring ethical requirements.
As a senior accredited registrant with NCS (National Counselling Society), I adhere to their ethical guidelines. You may belong to a different professional body and we can discuss differences and see how they work together.
I work both face to face in my therapy room in Alton and online using VSee (which works very similarly to Skype). I have experienced both of these options as working very well and we can discuss what is the better option for you.
If you would like to arrange an informal meeting or video chat to discuss any of these areas further, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Fees are £50 per hour for individual supervision, £70 for a group of up to 4 people.
Sessions can be flexible and length negotiated according to your needs.
