Supervision And Coaching

Counseling

Our lead counsellor and director, Nicola, also offers one to one supervision and coaching 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 individual, to support the growth of the professional to help them become the confident, professional self they wish to become. 

Nicola believes the supervisory/coaching 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 each individual can resolve any issues autonomously.  Nicola is not in any position to criticise or undermine the work of the professional but to encourage and support decisions when necessary.

Our coaching is designed for those who wish to build their confidence within their field of work. This is not limited to counsellors and is suitable for anyone who needs support within their workplace. Our coaching is also designed for those who wish to start up their own business and are looking to build their confidence, knowledge, and self-belief to help them achieve their goals as self-employed.

The cost of supervision is £45 per hour/£60 per 1.5 hrs.  A discounted rate may be available to student counsellors (ID must be presented on initial meeting)

The cost of coaching is £50 per hour/£65 per 1.5 hrs.

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 hours each time we meet. The cost of the group is £25 per person per month.
