Supervision Feedback

The following is feedback from previous supervisees who have given consent for their comments to be published, to reflect their experience of supervision with Kirsty:

 

“I have been supervised by Kirsty for the past year and have been thoroughly inspired by her ability to guide, teach and lead novice supervisees on their journey through counselling. Kirsty created a safe and secure place for me to explore my thoughts, concerns and quest for knowledge whilst skilfully guiding me in accordance within an ethical framework.”

“Fab. Have grown to enjoy and use supervision to its full purpose with Kirsty and have developed and grown as a counsellor with her guidance and support. She is always there when I need her either by phone or email.  Would highly recommend. Many thanks Kirsty.”

“I have found that supervision with Kirsty is comfortable which allows for a reflective process. My counselling is in the development stage as a student counsellor, my confidence in me as a person and in my skills as a counsellor are also developing within in my clinical supervision with Kirsty”

“Kirsty is a warm and supportive Supervisor with a great wealth of knowledge and experience. It is a pleasure to work with her”

“I am particularly interested in Kirsty’s use of creative techniques to enhance the supervision process as it helps add a further dimension to our supervision. Being a psychodynamic practitioner, understanding unconscious processes is very important for me. Working with Kirsty in a creative way enables me to reach a much deeper understanding of my supervision work, identify blocks and consequently helps strengthen my supervisory alliance with my supervisees”

“Since attending supervision, my knowledge about my role as a counsellor has increased immensely. Through supervision, I have learned that CPD is vital for me to help increase my knowledge and give me a better understanding of different theories and tools to use for the benefit of my clients. Kirsty is an understanding supervisor and gives constructive feedback and support when required. Thank you Kirsty”

“This was my first experience of supervision so I did not know what to expect before starting. However, I felt very much at ease with Kirsty, which gave me the opportunity to learn and explore in depth what it was I needed from supervision. It was important for me as a student counsellor to have a supervisor who would be patient with me if or when needed, and I felt Kirsty certainly did this. I really enjoyed the creativity of the Sand Tray and I am still in awe of its power to bring the subconscious to life!”

“I found this supervision experience very rewarding. I was extremely well supported, and knew help was at hand whenever I needed it. Kirsty was very supportive of my own practice, but also challenged me in so many ways and also enabled me to view my own practice from an alternative position.”

“It was during my first counselling placement that I first met Kirsty, my appointed supervisor. Seeing clients for the first time is a daunting and anxiety provoking stage for any counselling student. The need for a considered, capable and empathic supervisor is crucial if the student is to put their theoretical knowledge into ethical and informed practice. Kirsty not only has these qualities, but also is able to convey a sense of warmth, realness and understanding – welcome friends during challenging times. Kirsty’s ability to ‘see’ my blind spots and suggest interventions was a lifting experience together with the non-defensive manner she would respond to my challenges. I will be forever grateful to Kirsty for her guidance and her encouragement to believe in myself.”

“Kirsty’s gift to me was to enable me to develop a firm sense of ‘self’ and the positive role that plays in the therapist/client encounter as well as to trust my strong sense of intuition for future practice.”

“The biggest thing I will take forward would be that I would like to go on in the future to do some in-depth training on creative therapy.”

“My contracting process is one area which certainly benefitted from this experience, and this is definitely one thing which I will take forward. I’m also more aware of transference and counter-transference issues in my work as a result of this experience, and is something I will use to further develop my own practice.”

“The whole experience was excellent for me and I cannot think of anything that could have improved the experience.”

“To say ‘Thank you’ doesn’t seem enough. My experience with Kirsty has been an extremely positive one which kept me focused and looking forward to qualifying…..Thank you!”

“I would like to thank Kirsty for all the help and support she has given me, and look forward to being able to work with her again in the future.”

“Thanks for everything Kirsty”
