Testimonials – Supervision

Anne is the External Consultant Supervisor for our team of experienced counsellors.  She is always professional, insightful and clearly boundaried – as well as being responsive and flexible when required.  I can highly recommend her.

I have worked with Anne as supervisor of my counselling and supervision work for some years. Anne’s ability to offer challenge while holding my vulnerabilities, and her skill in articulating processes I am struggling with have supported me to be the best I can be with my clients and supervisees.  This is a relationship I trust and value enormously.

Anne has been my supervisor since February 2012. I would recommend her highly (and indeed have) to anyone seeking good supervision. She is the right amount of challenging but remains encouraging​, she is warm but honest which is exactly what I need as an independent practitioner. She is also highly ethical and keeps up to date with any updates or changes within the counselling profession. I have grown almost beyond recognition as a therapist since having Anne as my supervisor and I credit a lot of this growth to the excellent supervision and care I have had from Anne.

Supervision with Anne provides many things, for me it is about support as well as challenge and also a space to explore my own processes, in order that I can offer my clients a valuable therapeutic experience.  Anne has it covered!

Our supervision sessions with Anne are not only extremely beneficial to our professional practice but also personally too.  We look forward to them each month and always come away feeling well supported, challenged and with plenty of food for thought.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anne as a Supervisor to anyone looking for this type of support.

Anne is an integral member of our Hospice Trustees Board on a number of levels:  She heads up our Clinical Governance team which meets on a bi-monthly basis and attends regular Board Meetings.  Anne supervises my three members of Bereavement staff every six weeks ensuring they have a safe place to talk through any concerns they may have either personally or related to work issues.  On a number of occasions Anne has generously given her time to offer specific areas of training to all Hospice staff which have been received extremely well by all who have attended.  I personally find Anne a great “sounding-board,” someone I can talk to confidentially about work concerns and bounce lots of ideas off with her.  I have no hesitation in sign-posting people to her for counselling where necessary.  She has excellent boundaries, objective, perceptive, resilient, self-aware and an excellent listener.    I highly recommend her array of skills!

Anne has been my supervisor for over 2 years now and I can honestly say that I have felt totally supported, understood, validated and challenged during our supervision sessions together. Anne is a great educator and facilitator of knowledge and wisdom whether it be a quote, a quick drawing on the whiteboard, or the passing on of relevant training courses and networking. I have grown professionally and personally since working with Anne in my current role.
