Supervision in Chorley, Lancashire and online
I offer supervision for trainee or qualified counsellors and psychotherapists, individually and in group settings.
As therapists we all need to have a safe and compassionate place where we can take a step back and reflect on our client work. A place to work through ethical dilemmas or anything you might be finding challenging or demanding and to celebrate progression.
When they embark on a new supervision relationship, many people feel worried that they might be judged professionally or personally. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe your days have started to blur together or you’re noticing that you are feeling stressed, stuck, tired, and unfulfilled a lot of the time, possibly approaching burnout.
Maybe you are trying to figure out your therapist identity, where you do your best work and which direction you want to move forward in.
Perhaps you are a trainee counsellor searching for your first supervisor, feeling daunted about embarking on your placement and really don’t know where to start or what you really need from supervision.
Does any of this resonate with you? If it does, I would like you to know that I can help.
Compassionate and supportive supervisory environment
I’m Sarah and I’m a qualified supervisor. My aim is to provide a safe, compassionate, collaborative, and supportive environment which offers exploration and supportive challenge which is free from judgement. I will work hard to honour your unique style, wellbeing, growth and professional development whilst keeping your clients at the very heart of our work together.
Whether you are a trainee or an experienced counsellor, I will encourage and support you as you figure out the kind of therapist you are and the direction you want to take.
I use the Seven-Eyed model of supervision developed by Peter Hawkins to underpin my supervision practice. I work in a supervisee centred way.
I now work solely in private practice, which I have been running for just over 3 years. I specialise in working with people who have experienced bereavement, relationship challenges, or trauma and abuse, including Boarding School survivors. I have chosen to focus my own therapy work with adults and couples but I have experience of working with children and young people (aged 4+).
One to One (Qualified practitioner) – £60 (1 hour) / £80 (1.5 hours)
One to One (Trainee) – £50 (1 hour) /£65 (1.5 hours)
Group – £60 per person (1.5 hours)
I offer a free initial 30 minute session to give us both the time and space to get to know each other a little, explore your hopes and fears for supervision and to see if we would be a good fit together.
During this first session we can also pay attention to confidentiality and boundaries. We will look at your individual needs, style of working and the relationships you hold with your clients, as well as the setting of your practice.
We can meet with online or in person.
