As a supervisor I aim to provide an attentive and supportive climate within which the supervisee can develop new options for managing themselves and their work with greater satisfaction and effectiveness. Supervision aims to achieve this by:
Considering responsibility of standards and ethics.
ie. Ethical requirement of the BACP, colleges, and other organisations
Sharing the responsibility for the professional development of the supervisee skills,
knowledge and understanding in a way that the supervisee can understand and absorb
Offering the supervisee constructive feedback, challenge,
support and a safe place “for discharging and recharging batteries”
(Inskipp and Proctor, 1989)

I feel so lucky that I’ve had the benefit of Sue as a counselling lecturer, trainer and supervisor over the last six years. She has been an invaluable source of knowledge and skills, wisdom and sensitivity, for my development as a counsellor, and anyone she works with is in very safe hands.
"I really value Sue's supervision,
she is supportive, but challenging and refreshing. There are always new perspectives to be explored in supervision, which I can use in my
work with clients."
