Talking to a counsellor who is removed from the problem means starting at the beginning and deciding what to talk about (and therefore what is important). This makes it real. I can help you focus on what the problem is and what it’s like for you to be experiencing it. My role is to be curious with you (not judgemental) so that you can be honest with yourself. Sometimes as children our curiosity about ourselves is discouraged and sometimes we grow to believe that others’ feelings are more important than ours so as adults we neglect to listen to ourselves.
Counselling is about really hearing yourself and not having to worry about how it will affect someone else. How you are with the problem is as important as the problem itself.
Supervision is a trusting relationship in which the therapist is able to reflect, receive support, maximise the effectiveness of their therapeutic relationships, monitor and safeguard the interests of their clients, maintain ethical standards and develop and grow as a therapist.
Whether you are a new or experienced therapist, it is difficult to be completely objective so building an ongoing relationship with a trusted supervisor allows both to attend to the needs of the client and therapist.
“All counsellors, psychotherapists, trainers and supervisors are required to have regular and on-going formal supervision/consultative support for their work in accordance with professional requirements.” (BACP Ethical Framework 2010 p.6, paragraph 7).
