feelbettereveryday.co.uk ~ self-care for your mind, body, heart and soul. Integrative clinical supervision, counselling, therapeutic coaching, yoga and more. In Witham and Colchester, Essex (and worldwide via telephone and Vsee or Skype)
As with all my work, self-care is key and by taking care of themselves and their practices, my supervisees are better able to support their clients.
As an integrative clinical supervisor, accredited psychosynthesis counsellor, life coach, therapeutic coach, yoga therapist for mental health, accredited advanced certified EFT (emotional freedom technique) practitioner, NLP (neuro linguistic programming) practitioner and crystal therapist, I struggled to find supervision that would honour my whole practice.
While I still get additional specialist supervision in the areas my main supervisor isn’t qualified in, I really value the monthly space to reflect on my whole practice. Similarly, if you choose to work with me, I might not be qualified in all of your areas. You may want to get additional specialist supervision for those therapies in line with your professional bodies’ requirements and your sense of what your clients need.
A BACP accredited counsellor, I’ve served on BACP’s Coaching Executive since March 2014 and became Chair in January 2017. An ongoing priority for our members is finding good supervision.
I provide supervision in accordance with the BACP ethical framework for good practice in the counselling professions. You can find out more by clicking here.
You can read my first Chair’s message (going into more detail about my background in terms of coming to honour integrated ways of working rather than feeling ashamed of having so many strings to my bow) here.
I completed my Core, Therapeutic, Group and Advanced Supervision Certificates with the Centre for Supervision and Team Development (click here for more information) in 2016.
I’ve been working with supervisees since October 2016 and it’s quickly become a favourite way of working.
While I complete the process towards my overall certification, I'm offering low cost integrative clinical supervision (£40 per hour).
My supervision training was with Robin Shohet (co-author of Supervision in the Helping Professions) and Joan Wilmot at CSTD. I love their holistic Seven-Eyed Model as it offers so much depth. If you're drawn to specific areas you'd like to focus on, do let me know - it's very much a collaborative approach.
1) focus on client and what they present
2) exploration of your (supervisee's) strategies and interventions
3) focus on client / supervisee relationship (attending to client's transference)
4) focus on you (supervisee)
5) focusing on supervisory relationship (ensuring it's meeting your needs)
6) focusing on my (supervisor) own process (reflecting later and in supervisor's supervision) and
7) focusing on the wider, systemic issues affecting your (supervisee's) client work
Multiskilled therapists, coach-therapists, therapeutic coaches and others who integrate their therapies often feel that they're in uncharted territory. Whether you already have a small group of people wanting integrative clinical supervision or you'd like to join a group of like-minded souls, please get in touch to find out more.
