Clinical & Coaching Supervision
What is Supervision?
What Supervision includes
Understanding the clients and the context in which the supervisee works.
An exploration of the supervisee and client relationship.
To support the supervisee and ensure they are sufficiently resourced to managing coaching work within their capacity.
Reflection and exploration of client work.
To include ethical considerations and referral processes.
Psychological element of casework.
The well-being considerations of the supervisee.
Continued professional development.
My Supervision Experience
I have supervised a range of helping Practitioners (including Counsellors, Coaches, Supervisors and Designated Safeguarding Leads) for over 5 years during my roles within the NHS, schools and charities as a Chartered Psychologist. As my experience and knowledge integrates both therapeutic and coaching elements, I can offer a wide array of supervision support for supervisees.
The most frequent approach I use for supervision is Proctor’s 3 Function Interactive Model.
This is broken into three areas:
§ FORMATIVE FUNCTION (Learning) – supervision is concerned with developing the skills, abilities and
understandings of the supervisee.
§ RESTORATIVE FUNCTION (Support) – supervision explores and reviews how the supervisee responds
emotionally to the stresses of the work.
§ NORMATIVE (Accountability) – supervision is concerned with maintaining and ensuring the safety and effectiveness of the supervisee’s practice work.

My own research within mindfulness, compassion and stress management allows me to add a further dimension into my supervisor role. In addition to my experience, I have completed the SDS Essentials and Advanced (Level 3) Clinical Supervision course which allows me to be on the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors. I am also a qualified supervisor on both the coaching directory and counselling directory.
Regular Supervision for Counsellors (not trainees), Coaches, Supervisors and helping professions
Regular supervision for those in practice usually takes place on a monthly basis depending on the requirements of your professional body and the number of clients you are currently supporting.
The majority of supervisees usually opt for 1 hour or 1.5 hrs depending on their needs. This can be discussed and reviewed during your sessions.

As one of the first BPS Chartered Coaching Psychologist in the United Kingdom (currently only 33 Chartered Coaching Psychologist Supervisors), I can also support individuals wishing to seek BPS Coaching Psychology Chartership.
