If two heads are better than one, two pairs of eyes can add super-vision to any clinical situation. In my role as supervisor, I really enjoy the opportunity to support the development of other professionals.
You can be sure of my credentials and experience as a supervisor accredited by BACP and COSRT. For many years, I have supervised trainees, qualified therapists, those working towards accreditation and beyond. I recognise that the needs of the supervisee will vary according to the level of training and therapy experience. I have often provided a supervisor report to record the accomplishments and development areas for supervisees.
Whether working with an individual supervisee or a group, I strive to ensure a suitable balance between support and challenge, in a relational dialogue to explore the meaning and effectiveness of the supervisee’s clinical work.
The value of supervision is a supportive space in which to explore the highlights, puzzles and tangles which occur in their practice working with clients.
An unshakeable belief in the necessity and benefit of supervision means I receive supervision myself at a minimum of monthly. I draw upon the expertise of more than one supervisor, given the variety of therapy work I offer: psychotherapy, psychosexual therapy, equine-facilitated therapy, as well as receiving supervision of my supervision work. There’s always something of value to discuss.
My fee for individuals is from £60 per 50-minute session for supervision of counselling / psychotherapy, or £75 per 50-minute supervision of equine-facilitated practice.
Usually supervisees commit to a minimum of one 50-minute supervision per month, depending on their scope of practice and the requirements of their professional association(s).
Group supervision or reflective practice sessions can also be funded by organisations for their employees or volunteers. Please contact me for further details.
Having worked with Sarah for some years, first as a counselling client and subsequently as a supervisee, I have been impressed firstly with the therapeutic alliance we have developed and subsequently through her support felt validated myself as a therapist, enabling me to support my own growing therapy practice. Her grounded, ethical and authentic approach to her work is evident and has been invaluable. She goes above and beyond her duties as a supervisor such that I always feel fully supported should I feel the need to call upon her.
I was originally attracted to Sarah’s website because of her portfolio of professional credentials and experience when I was looking for a new Supervisor. I have been seeing her for a few months now and I look forward to our regular sessions as they stimulate and encourage autonomy and reflection. Sarah provides a welcoming, professional and supportive environment that is collaborative rather than prescriptive, which complements my style of working.
I’ve had coaching supervision with Sarah for the last three years. One of the many things that I really value about Sarah is how she seamlessly combines being very supportive whilst challenging my thinking and approach (a delicate balance which I feel she has consistently excelled in). She has helped me make meaning and sense of a myriad of very complex and challenging coaching cases, and has enabled me to consistently take a different perspective (which as an executive Coach I place a premium on). Sarah has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is incredibly generous in sharing both anecdotal examples as well as materials / articles that have allowed me to build my knowledge and coaching practice. My experience of coaching supervision with Sarah, is that she creates an environment that allows for joint exploration and reflection. She brings a wonderful mix of different approaches into each session (be that looking at things through a Gestalt lens, or taking a TA approach, to name but a few) to provoke thinking and elicit further insight. She has a great skill in being able to navigate discussions and cases with ease, cutting through the detail which helps me engage in a process of interactive reflection. I’ve personally learnt a lot from Sarah and would not hesitate to provide the highest recommendation of her as a Coach supervisor.
Thank you for supervision today. I found it supportive and so helpful. It always makes me stop and think, which is great. Very appreciated.
