Supervision is essential for maintaining and advancing a counsellor's work with clients.
It provides a structured approach to deeper reflection and a regular time and space
a counsellor to discuss their work with clients and any issues which may be
affecting that work.

It is not about policing or checking up. The aim is to develop a relationship in which
your supervisor is regarded as a trusted colleague who can help you reflect on all
dimensions of your practice, and through that process to develop your counselling

Supervision is vital in helping with stress management. A good supervisor ensures
that a counsellor is not left with carrying the client's projections, and also enables
the counsellor to offload emotionally draining experiences. Not addressing these
issues can lead to some counsellors to burnout.

Sue and Barbara know from their own experience, with mutual trust and respect,
how valuable supervision can be as a means of continuously evaluating effectiveness,
developing expertise and finding new ways of learning.

Sue and Barbara's approach is eclectic, based on the core conditions of
person-centred counselling and the belief in client autonomy. Their training and
experience means they can draw on a broad range of approaches including
psychodynamic, systemic, cognitive behavioural, and transactional analysis.

Sue and Barbara charge 40 an hour for supervision, but a lower rate of 25 an hour
for trainee counsellors.
