I have been working as a clinical supervisor for over 14 years.
Currently, I supervise for various organisations including Pavilions, CGL, Surrey Drug & Alcohol Counselling and in private practice in Lewes.
I take a relational and process orientated approach to supervision and believe that the supervisory relationship should be a supportive one which attends to the developmental and educational needs of the supervisee and also ensures that their clients are being worked within an ethical, safe and appropriate way.
My style of supervision is consultative. I provide a space for you, whether you are a counsellor, psychotherapist or an allied professional to bring your client load, and consult with me about that work. I hold in mind the three functions of supervision as outlined by Proctor. Namely; the formative, (educational) normative (ethical issues, the 'norms' of the profession and possible legal issues) and most importantly restorative (the effect of the work on the supervisee, personal issues, workload, time management and stress).
