Clinical Supervision

Adele Clayton – Clinical Supervisor

The supervisory relationship is paramount in helping counsellors to become more aware, confident and knowledgeable in their work with clients.

I aim to provide a safe, supportive space for you to develop your clinical practice through insight and reflection. Working with the individual aims and experience of each supervisee enables me to provide a tailored approach.

My own counselling base is integrative, incorporating person-centred, transactional analysis, CBT, solution-focused and psycho-educational modalities. My experience includes working with children, young people and adults across many sectors, developing and managing counselling services and private practice.

I have a comprehensive understanding of the BACP Code of Ethics and Good Practice, which is at the core of my supervision work, and primarily use the Seven Eyed Model for Supervision (Hawkins & Shohet).

Supervision sessions are also available to school, college and safeguarding staff to provide professional and personal support for your work. The pressures of working within education and dealing with the issues young people face, can take a toll. Supervision is an opportunity for you to offload, reflect and recharge to be at your best both in and out of work. This can take place in-house or off-site in our Ramsbottom base.
