Supervision

Clinical Supervision

I provide supervision to counselling organisations, telephone counsellors, newly qualifying and qualified counsellors working with adults, children, young people and families with a range of presenting issues.

I previously worked and supervised for 13 years in the corporate sector in a range of areas; complex children, young people and families through mental health issues, anxiety, stress, workplaces issues, ‘looked after children’, children/young people with learning difficulties, safeguarding and child protection issues.

As an integrative supervisor with extensive knowledge and experience, I am confident in working in other models, with a person-centred core philosophy that creates the necessary environment to allow you to share vulnerabilities that we all have, learn and grow from. Having been on the receiving end of supervision for over 15 years and not all of the time was it good. Creating a transparent safe environment is fundamental in developing an individual’s uniqueness.

I am excited when receiving good supervision as it creates the opportunity to grow and discover things about yourself in an ethical arena. It’s okay to make mistakes within a professional space where worries are respectfully acknowledged and addressed in an unconditional manner. To feel confident that your supervisor is honest and transparent in their approach, supporting you to build your competency skills by challenging when necessary.

My experience of good supervision involves encouragement in continued professional development, self reflection and opportunities to discover hidden skills and strengths, Recognition and praise when it’s deserved, empowerment in taking risks, clear expectations and boundaries, confidence in supporting safeguarding matters if and when they arise, this would be part of the package I will provide you.

Being a good supervisor involves passion, holding high ethical standards and integrity endorsed by the BACP code of ethics. A personal interest in you and offering an adaptable supervisory approach which I offer you. Additionally, if required, my offer can include completing qualifying reports for colleges and training providers.

Please check out my testimonials as the supervisors I have just taken on have already provided feedback!


exceptional!

This is the second time that I have returned for counselling with Clare. She's exceptional! She always emotionally gets me to where I want to be and glad that she is finally working for herself! Now others will get the opportunity to experience her skills and experience - best of luck!

I didn’t feel silly…

Having had no previous counselling, we decided to try it to see if it would help our situation as life over the last few years had become very busy. With having so many children and three Grandchildren who have all had problems at times with some being more challenging than others. We felt we were taking each other for granted and thought it would be good to talk to someone who didn't know us to see if they could help. I found Clare to be very helpful. I didn't feel silly and she made me feel at ease and comfortable. And someone who understood where I was coming from. I feel that our life is back on track and the future is more certain.

I found the supervision today extremely helpful. Your ability to really know my client just by me explaining him and his issues amazed me and your support and direction was also amazing. I really got a lot out of today so thank you!

inspiring and strengthening

Clare made me feel immediately comfortable and relaxed enough to open up to her without feeling judged. She listened with understanding and gently guided me to accept that changes to my habitual mindset will make me feel different within and in turn I will be able to achieve a more balanced and contented life. She also made some realistic suggestions on how to achieve this that I found very helpful. I found the session inspiring and strengthening.
