Supervision in Frome

Boat in river - Ingrid Schultz - counselling supervisionI offer supervision to trainee or qualified counsellors either individually or in small groups. I can also offer on-line supervision.

For 6 years I have worked a supervisor for a large counselling organisation in Gloucestershire.  I supervise both qualified as well as trainee counsellors.

As a supervisor I offer an environment of respect, trust, openness and honesty. My aim is to support and enable a supervisee to the best of my abilities, but also to provide a holding and nurturing environment, as at times therapeutic work can be very challenging and demanding.

I encourage each supervisee to develop their own way of working within the BACP Ethical Framework.

Exploring one’s feelings to develop thinking and deepen one’s understanding of what may be happening for the client in the therapeutic process is one of the core elements of counselling supervision for me. I see my role as a supervisor to enable a supervisee in developing this ability.

I do not charge for an initial meeting with a therapist who is thinking about receiving supervision from me. Once the therapist has decided that they wish for me to become their supervisor, I then aim to put a supervision agreement in place, which I discuss with a supervisee first. I feel it is important to have regular reviews and feed back sessions in order to make sure that the supervisee is satisfied with the service that I am offering.

I have undergone a short training to support counsellors who wish to go through the BACP accreditation process with the aim of becoming BACP accredited. I offer mentoring, support and a read-through service.

I offer supervision to professionals within the helping professions, who would like to reflect on and think about their work.

Nowadays some form of work place supervision is quite common in many professions. It is particularly relevant for those in caring professions and those with responsibility for the wellbeing of others, where without appropriate support the personal and emotional demands can become overwhelming.

There are specific reasons why regular meetings with someone totally independent of your work situation can be especially relevant and helpful.
