Clinical Supervision

I currently offer sessions via Zoom or in person (in Dunoon, Argyll).

 

What is Clinical Supervision for counsellors?

"Counselling Supervision is a formal and mutually agreed arrangement for counsellors to discuss their work regularly with someone who is normally an experienced and competent counsellor and familiar with the process of counselling supervision"

(BACP Code of Ethics and Practice for Supervisors of Counsellors, 1996)

Clinical supervision is necessary for all practising counsellors and is a requirement of registration and our ethical framework. I offer the opportunity to explore your counselling practice, skills, values, challenges and client work and have over 20 years' experience supporting peers. The sessions are a mixture of support and monitoring to help your therapeutic work remain professional and ethical whilst challenging you to develop. 

 

Example of counselling supervisor responsibilities:

•  Meeting with you regularly

•  Discussing your counselling practice

•  Supporting you and your relationship with clients

•  Challenging for growth and development

•  Catalyst for self-reflection

Cost

60-minute session for registered/accredited counsellors - £55

90-minute session for registered/accredited counsellors - £82.50

60-minute session for trainee counsellors - £40

This is payable in advance by bank transfer before the time of the appointment.

 

Remote appointments

I am a professional member of ACTO (level 2) so am  qualified to work via remote platforms such as Zoom.

Confidentiality

The content of sessions is confidential although I will discuss my work with my clinical supervisor.

 

I am registered as a Data Controller with ICO, registration reference ZB294819 to meet legal requirements regarding the safe storage of your personal information. 

 

Due to my respect of your privacy, I would request that you do not identify me on social media.

 

 

Cancellation

If you wish to cancel or reschedule a session, this can be done by email or text.

Sessions cancelled with more than 24 hours’ notice will be rescheduled without charge. Sessions cancelled within 24 hours will be charged at the full rate. This is due to it being too short notice to reallocate the appointment.

 

Complaints

If there are any aspects of my counselling service that you are unhappy with, please discuss this with me in the first instance. If you feel your concern has not been fully addressed, I am a member of the BACP and as such abide by their professional standards. You are able to report any complaints directly to them.
