As counsellors in England we are expected to attend 1.5 hours of supervision per month, regardless of the number of clients we are seeing.

The aim of this workshop, suitable for counsellors, supervisors and those considering training as supervisors, is to provide a reflective space to explore and focus on the role of counselling supervision in private practice.

It will be an opportunity to explore the role of the counsellor and the supervisor within the relationship to enable you to gain more form these relationships.

We will look at engagement in the process, the impact of the process, power dynamics that may occur and what to do when your supervisor does not have a good working knowledge of your particular client group.

The workshop will also explore the impact of client work on counsellors and look at what supervision can do to improve our engagement with clients and within our professional practice overall.

The workshop will include theoretical input from the facilitator, small group work and discussion where participants can explore their experiences and ideas. Our Facilitator Stephan Dais holds an MA in Group and Intercultural Therapy and an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and has a wide experience in the counselling and supervising world.
