Our lead counsellor and director, Nicola, also offers one to one supervision and has extensive experience working with children and young people. However, she also supervises professionals working with adults. Nicola works in a way that promotes the development of each supervisee, to support and guide each individual to grow in to the professional they wish to become.
Nicola believes the supervisory relationship should be equal and a one which encourages mutual respect and honesty. It is Nicola's role to build confidence and encourage self exploration to ensure the supervisee can resolve any issues autonomously. Nicola is not in any position to criticise or undermine the work of the supervisee but to encourage and support your decisions when necessary.
The cost of supervision is £40 per hour. A discounted rate may be available to student counsellors (ID must be presented on initial meeting)
Nicola also offers group supervision for students on placement or newly qualified practitioners:
Starting out as a counsellor can be quite exciting, empowering, and very rewarding, however it can also be scary and quite daunting. With this in mind, Nicola would like to introduce student counsellors and newly qualified counsellors to group supervision.
Group supervision is designed to offer support to those on their counselling placements and to those who are newly qualified. To keep the group intimate and to hold a sense of safety and security, the group will be limited to 6 people each month. The group will be ran in a relaxed environment with opportunities to be creative, somewhere you can learn from each other, reflect on your practice or even just a space to listen and observe.
If you would like to book a place, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Group supervision will take place once a month and will run for 1.5 - 2 hours each time we meet. The cost of the group is £25 per person per month.
