Having coached and line managed others in the helping profession for 20 years I understand the importance of a sound mentor, and how useful it is to have a space where it’s completely safe to air your fears, hopes and anxieties.
My style of supervision has been described as managing you, the supervisee, without you feeling managed, supportively challenging, and warm and good humoured.
I run regular groups and also work one to one with supervisees, either standalone, or to top up agency or training provider supervision, in order to meet professional body requirements. Skype is also an option, once our relationship has been established through at least one face to face meeting. So there is potentially something to suit all styles, locations, time constraints and budgets.
I understand the challenges faced by trainees, juggling studies, work, home life and placements, all while trying to deal with the fact that you don’t know what you don’t know! As mentoring students and trainees is of particular interest to me, I’m able to offer concessionary rates for affordable supervision, for those who need it.
An initial, no obligation session is offered at just £20, allowing us to explore how we might work together in a supervisory relationship.
