Counselling supervision

Deliver the best counselling to your clients

Deliver the best counselling

As a counsellor, you want to achieve the best for your clients. Counselling supervision helps you to monitor the quality of care you provide, reflect upon your work, develop your clinical skills and insight, and facilitate professional and personal growth. It’s also an opportunity for you to look after you own wellbeing. 

Supervision is an interactive process. A blend of support and challenge that offers you encouragement, insight and constructive feedback.  Our experience of supervision is that the supervisor is at times a teacher, consultant, evaluator, supporter, clinical advisor and colleague.

Our approach

Dr Elspeth Schwenk is an independent counsellor/psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer. She is a Fellow with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and has served in several leadership roles with BACP.

As a 'critical friend', Elspeth invites her supervisees to participate in a reflective conversation that ensures best practice. Her approach brings together:

  • cognitive-behaviour, humanistic and psychodynamic theory
  • creative, systemic and developmental techniques
  • a focus on counsellor development and progression
  • a belief that supervision should be a collaborative partnership
  • an opportunity to work outside if appropriate

We provide supervision face-to-face, on the telephone, or via Skype or VSee. This can be in groups or on a one-to-one basis.

Who we can help

We work with individuals, groups, organisations, counselling agencies and Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP). This includes supervisees from within the workplace and staff support, student and staff counselling within higher and further education, healthcare settings, private practice, welfare support. We also support practitioners working with children and young people, and those supervisees working creatively and in nature-based settings.


Our counselling supervision covers a wide range of therapeutic modalities from an integrative perspective and reflects a systemic tapestry of supervision based upon several supervision models.
