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 can be an effective alternative to face to face supervision. If you work with clients via a technology mediated counselling, it is 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 offer Online supervision through email, Instant messenging, voice (similar to telephone supervision), or voice and webcam using Vsee.
You 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 the 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 30 minute discussion via Skype to help you decide if working with me as your supervisor feels comfortable for you 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.
Supervision Experience and Qualifications
I've been practising as a supervisor of counsellors since 1998.
As a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor, and within my practice as Counselling Supervisor I subscribe to the BACP Ethical Framework for Counselling and Supervision.I am predominantly a Person Centred practitioner, but have studied to MA level within the Humanistic framework for counselling,making my supervision practice very versatile and able to accomodateeach supervisee's indiviual orientation for counselling practice.
I have studied at Leicester University in the two stage course for Psychodynamic Counselling supervision. I am a qualified as an online supervisor. I have an OLT online supervision Diploma and I am registered on the ACTO website directory for approved counsellors and supervisors for online counselling/therapy. I have practiced as a counsellor since 1994 and as a supervisor since 1998
I have provided counselling supervision in many contexts, including:
Private practice, education and youth counselling services, bereavement and pallative care services, voluntary and charitable organisations, and within FE and HE institutions across the UK. This range of experience includes both individual and group supervision for experienced and trainee practitioners.
In my work as a counselling supervisor I have a commitment to being supportive, accessible, and approachable. I also place a strong emphasis on developing a good working relationship with supervisees in which there is an ethical and structured alliance, but one that also provides the space to be creative in exploring client work. The extensive range of my face to face and online counselling and supervision experience during the last 22 years provides a sound base for supervisees to explore their client work and feel contained within that process.
My fee for online counselling supervision via email or IM is £40 per ‘session’ which can consist of one main email each way or a one-hour secure,live session via Skype. If you would prefer supervision using Skype with voice or voice and web cam, the fee is £45 per hour. We can also vary which medium we use if it helps gain practice which helps to inform your client work.
