I like to think of supervision as contributing to healthy quality control of the service that counsellors and psychotherapists offer to their clients. As well as being supportive to the practitioner, it aims to ensure that therapist works towards providing the best possible service to their clients and hopefully therefore, the best outcomes.
UKCP defines supervision as being conducted within a formal working relationship, whether in-person one-to-one, or remotely over video conferencing.
My supervision training is with Addukha based in Manchester. It us a high quality training fully recognised by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy . One of the key trainers currently chairs the HIPC Training Standards Committee at UKCP for example.
Although the training is mindfulness based, the supervision I offer isn’t at all restricted to mindfulness based practitioners. My core training is integrative which makes my supervision style practicable for a variety of therapeutic approaches.
