For counsellors and psychotherapists, supervision provides an opportunity to stand back from their work and be supported in their efforts to help others. It provides a safe place where people can explore the dynamics of the counselling work so as to be clearer about the process they are engaged in. The primary concern is the safety of both client and counsellor. It also helps a counsellor to develop new awareness and creativity in their work.
Seamus and Bernadette have all been trained in the cyclical model of supervision (Page & Wosket 1994—Supervising the Counsellor). This model facilitates supervisors to work with counsellors who are of any school or methodology of counselling. This is because the goal of supervision is not to mould the counsellor into our way of working, but to provide a reflective space where new insights and learning can emerge.
Supervision Fee: £40 (50 Euro) per hour, £60 (75 Euro) per one and a half hour session.
