As a Counselling Psychologist in South Africa I was called upon to supervise intern Educational and Counselling Psychologists at the two remedial schools that I was employeed at. In addition I supervised qualified Psychologists in my private practice. Supervision (for qualified Psychologists) in South Africa is different than in the UK and is a recommendation for practitioners should they encounter a field they are not familiar with or have particular issues in their work they would like support on. It is not a contacted monthly arrangement. Monthly supervision is only a requirement for intern psychologists.
In 2018 I completed the Diploma in Supervision through the Institute For Individual Psychology. Although I had worked as a supervisor before this really clarified and strengthened my skills to meet the requirements laid out by the BACP for supervisors.
As such I work in accordance with the guidelines set out in the BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions (2016).
Sessions are an hour for £50 ( If you have additional supervision) or 90 minutes for £70 (To fulfill the BACP recommendation of 1,5 hours).
I reall strive to make my supervisees feel comfortable and at ease. Supervision is a creative and collaborative experience and shouldn’t provoke anxiety.
If you have any questions please email me and I’m happy to discuss the above.
