Online Counselling Supervision uk and Counselling Supervision
Counselling Supervision and online counselling Supervision Services uk:
Due to time constraints, travel arrangements, or difficulties with accessing a supervisor within your local area, the option of working with a supervisor using the internet has always been an effective alternative to face to face supervision. As most counsellors transferred their client work online since March 2020, and it has become more pertinent to receive online supervision with a qualified and experienced online supervisor.This is also strongly recommended by ACTO and BACP, to receive your supervision of the work in the same medium, and with a supervisor who is fully experienced and qualified to practice and supervise online. This enhances you work as a counsellor and also offers a good sense of containment in respect of some of the practical and technical issues that may arise within your online client practice.
I provide individual and group Online supervision through email, Instant messenging, voice (similar to telephone supervision), or voice and webcam using Zoom or Vsee.
You can choose which medium most suits your needs as a counsellor and your client practice.
It is important to feel that you have a good connection with your supervisor and that online supervision provides the right space for you to safely explore your client work. If you are considering approaching me for counselling supervision I can offer an initial free 30 minute discussion via Zoom to help you decide if working with me as your supervisor feels comfortable for you, your theoretical approach, your client groups, and relevant for the context of your clinical practice etc. Please contact me via the email contact form on this website to arrange a time to meet.
I work from an integrative theoretical practice. My foundation training was in Psychodynamic therapy, but later i moved towards a Humanistic and Person Centred approach. I have also completed CBT training. My professional background has been founded in organisational and private practice contexts and extends over 27 years. I originally worked in general counselling practice and within schools, further and higher education positions. My supervision practice has also included these contexts of client work. Having held positions where i was a manager of counselling services, I provide extensive support to counsellors and supervisors who are also holding a clinical lead or managerial role. I can offer supervisees a broad range of experience to help support them in their client and supervision practice, particularly where they are working online, or have adopted a blended approach of face to face and online client work. I regularly support supervisees who are undergoing accreditation with professional bodies such as BACP.
