Clinical Supervision

What is counselling supervision?
Supervision is a formal arrangement for therapists to discuss their work regularly with someone who is experienced in both therapy and supervision. The task is to work together to ensure and develop the efficacy of the therapist client relationship. The agenda will be the therapy and feeling about that work, together with the supervisor’s reactions, comments and challenges. Thus supervision is a process to maintain adequate standards of therapy and a method of consultancy to widen the horizons of an experienced practitioner. (BACP)

As an Accredited Supervisor with the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I have 12 years experience in providing professional and clinical supervision for counsellors in the voluntary and private sectors.
I work with individual counsellors and also provide group supervision.

Supervision Process
Having had an introductory meeting to discuss your supervisory needs we may by mutual agreement decide to  contract for further supervisory sessions. My approach to supervisory work is integrative.
I provide supervision for both student and experienced practitioners in the field of counselling/ psychotherapy, education and community development.
