Supervision for Individuals
The BACP states:
"Supervision is essential to how practitioners sustain good practice throughout their working life. Supervision provides practitioners with regular and ongoing opportunities to reflect in depth about all aspects of their practice in order to work as effectively, safely and ethically as possible. Supervision also sustains the personal resourcefulness required to undertake the work."
As a highly experienced counsellor but less experienced supervisor, I am offered for a short period of time, six sessions at a discounted (33%) price
Contact me and let's see if we are a good fit and then discuss your supervision requirements: 1 hour a fortnight, a month or 1.5 hrs per month or 2 hrs per month?
We will work together on the following basis — our rights and responsibilities:
- To bring concerns/issues about Supervisee's work.
- To question Supervisee about his/her work and workload.
- To give Supervisee constructive feedback on his/her work performance.
- To observe Supervisee's practice and to initiate supportive / corrective action as required.
