Dara Supervision

“Supervision is a working alliance between two professionals where supervisees offer an account of their work, reflect on it, receive feed back, and guidance if appropriate, The object of this alliance is to enable the worker to gain ethical competency, confidence and creativity as to give the best possible service to clients”                                                                          (Inskipp and Proctor 20001 cited Carroll and Gilbert 2005:7)

I am a professional counsellor and counselling supervisor experienced in working with young people and adults.  I am a registered member of the NCS and work in accordance with the Counsellors’ and Psychotherapists’ Ethical Framework.

I have a successful private practice offering counselling and supervision. My life experience and working background is broad and diverse. I have worked with different charities/agencies supporting people from all walks of life.  Most recently I held the Clinical Lead role for a North Somerset counselling charity.

My training includes – Diploma in Supervision (NCS approved, Level 7) Iron Mill College, Diploma (Level 7) in Counselling Children and Young People, FdSc (Distinction) in Counselling from the University of Gloucestershire, Certificate in Pastoral Counselling Skills from Network Training. I have also completed the Transactional Analysis 101 course and qualified with Cruse Bereavement Care as a Bereavement Volunteer. I work relationally within an integrative therapeutic approach and draw primarily on Inskipp and Proctor’s Functional Model and Hawkins & Shohet’s Seven Eyed Model of Supervision to hold, explore and develop your practice.

I offer supervision face to face from my home office in Portishead or online.

I hold public liability and indemnity insurance, which covers my work with you.
