Supervision for Counsellors & PsychotherapistsI am a UKCP accredited Supervisor. I also work within BACP guidelines.
Working under supervision means that a counsellor or psychotherapist uses the services of another, specially trained counsellor or psychotherapist, to review their work with clients, their professional development, and often their personal development as well.
Supervision is a professional service, rather than a managerial role, and for counsellors who work in institutions, supervision and management will normally be entirely separate. The supervisor acts not as a 'boss', but as a consultant encouraging reflective thought and ethical working.
Some counsellors also use group supervision, in which several therapists confer on each other's work. This offers an opportunity to learn from other’s styles and understandings.
Fee: £50 per hour (reduced fees for trainee therapists)
Group Supervision Fee: £20 per session (up to four people in group)
