The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) requires all therapists to receive a minimum of 90 minutes of supervision per month – Your Wellbeing can help.
We offer professional clinical supervision for both individual trainee and qualified counsellors, in a safe, supportive environment.
Our supervisor Jane will work closely with you to build a trusting relationship that supports, challenges and nurtures. Our aim is to develop your confidence and knowledge as a therapist, and your ability to provide effective and ethical counselling for clients.
Why is clinical supervision important?
There are many reasons why clinical supervision is important.
It can help you:
stay up to date with the latest research and treatment approaches
increase your skills in working with people with specific difficulties
adhere to ethical principles
It can also provide an opportunity for you to reflect on your therapeutic work and gain feedback from a more experienced professional.
Supervision can enhance your clinical practice and highlight areas of growth to support you to reach your fullest potential.
What clinical supervision involves
There are a variety of models of supervision in use today. One of the most common is Hawkins and Shohet’s Seven-Eyed Model, which is the core model Jane uses when offering supervision.
However, her supervision approach is flexible, tailored to your needs and preferences as a trainee or practising counsellor. This flexible and relational style allows our supervisor to adapt and work with a variety of modalities and counselling practitioner styles.
Working with trauma
To support your work with clients who have experienced trauma, your supervision can focus on specific interventions, such as the internal family systems approach and regulating the nervous system with polyvagal theory.
Our lead counsellor, Jane, will deliver your clinical supervision sessions.
