The number of sessions will vary from person to person depending on their needs. I offer both long and short term therapy and can adapt how we work to accommodate this. Short term therapy can be beneficial for finding coping strategies, managing lifestyle changes and other minor issues. Long term therapy is more beneficial for deeper rooted issues. I regularly review how therapy is going with my clients, usually every 6 sessions, to ensure it is helpful and effective.
Ideally attendance for counselling sessions in Godalming will be weekly, at a regular time that is mutually convenient. Regular attendance assists the effectiveness of therapy.
I am a qualified supervisor with experience in supporting trainee and qualified counsellors, 1-1 and within groups. My aim is to provide a supervisory relationship that is caring, supportive and growth inducing.
Supervision is a two-way process of shared responsibilities between supervised and supervisor. I understand the purpose of supervision is to monitor and safeguard the interest of clients and to monitor and promote the welfare of the counsellor including their continued development and learning. It is also helpful in optimising the effectiveness of the therapeutic relationship. Good supervision ensures that ethical standards are maintained as set out by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
My preferred supervision model is Inskipp and Proctor's (2001) tasks of supervision, which cover support (restorative), learning and growth (formative) and monitoring (normative). I am also informed by parallel process and reflexivity. I am happy to be challenged and value supervision, seeing it as a safe place for supervisees to explore their work.
