I am a qualified and experienced supervisor and offer Person Centred Counselling Supervision in Manchester City Centre. I offer a free introductory meeting of around an hour to discuss how we might work together, including discussion of fees (I can offer discounts for students and a sliding scale for qualified counsellors).
I have particular experience of supervising students on the Salford postgraduate training programme (PGDip/MSc) along with other counselling training courses and college diplomas, as well as qualified counsellors and psychotherapists. I also supervise non-counselling staff from a range of professional organisations (eg youth workers, nursing staff).
I offer a facilitative environment where, as with Person Centred Counselling, the relationship is key. The unique relationship between supervisor and supervisee has important differences from a relationship between therapist and client, but is still underpinned by the core conditions of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. I have trained in the Hawkins and Shohet Seven Eyed Supervision model to give me additional perspectives and tools for the supervision process.
I do not consider myself an integrative or eclectic therapist – although what constitutes a “pure” Person Centred approach is up for discussion and debate, I do consider my personal philosophy and way of working to be very much rooted in the Person Centred Approach and this is my core attitude towards both counselling and supervision, however I do have knowledge of other models and more integrative approaches and am happy to offer supervision to people who might practise therapy in different ways. I am unlikely however, to be able to supervise CBT practitioners as that model is very alien to me and I do not have sufficient knowledge to offer such supervision.
