Supervision

Supervision – Explore and Flourish

I offer clinical supervision from my practice in Worthing.

My supervision style is supportive, with a focus on encouraging curiosity, passion and positive relationships – with one’s self, with our clients and with our practice.

As a business coach and owner of a therapy practice as well as my own, I can also offer practical support in setting up and running private practices following qualification and accreditation. This includes how to get started alongside other commitments and existing jobs and roles.

My clinical supervision practice covers 3 broad areas : Development, Standards and Support (otherwise known as Formative, Normative and Restorative).(From Proctor’s 3 Function Interactive model 1986/1992). 

proctors-model-of-clinical-supervision

Formative

The formative function of supervision is about assisting with the development of the supervisee’s practice skills, knowledge, insight and confidence.

Normative

The Normative functions look to help the supervisee ensure their practice is being managed well and is safe for both counsellor/coach and client.

Restorative

The Restorative role looks to give encouragement and emotional balance to the supervisee.


How do we work together?

In working with a supervisee, we would decide together how best to structure our sessions based around these areas to ensure the supervisee is getting exactly what they want out of each session and our time together.

This makes sure supervision is tailored for you – where you are in your training and development, the demands of your practice, and how you’d like to grow.

At the end of each session we’d review how it went and carry forward the learning to the next.

My Training

I hold a British Psychological Society approved certificate in Supervision.

I’m also an experienced UKCP accredited psychotherapist. I trained for my 4 year Post Graduate Diploma with The Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in London.

I work with an integrative approach based upon solution focused approaches, CBT, Relational TA, NLPt, Gestalt, Existential psychotherapy, hypnopsychotherapy and MBCT/Buddhist theory and underpinned with Person Centred core conditions. I also have an interest and training in ecopsychology and ecotherapy (taking therapy outside).

As a coach I draw upon my master NLP training and personal development, line management and career coaching roles while working for a number of large companies.

I’m currently providing supervision to counsellors, coaches, Victim Support Service personnel, local authority key workers and students undergoing their counselling diplomas at Worthing College.

Working with you has been a very good experience

My sessions with you have helped me a lot when it comes to adjusting to a new professional role. You have helped me raise my self awareness and develop an understanding of unhelpful patterns and learnt behaviour and how to start to change these.

I strongly recommend speaking to Alan

I sought out Alan to help me with some of the issues that I was experiencing and to develop a view of who I was and what role/environment would suit me.

We went through and used many different tools that I used and thought about to empower me. My confidence has since improved significantly and I feel altogether better and am now willing to trust people more.

sometimes forgot we were in a counselling session

Alan is terrific both as a counsellor & as a coach. I used him in both capacities for about a year, dealing with some very tough problems I was having & he was great at listening, reflecting and, very gently, prompting action on my part. And his advice had an uncanny quality of always being right!

Alan was a great help for me in working out my next career steps

His experienced and flexible approach also helped me develop more productive ways of dealing with stressful situations. I have no hesitation in recommending him for others who feel life or job coaching may be beneficial.

Alan’s holistic approach worked brilliantly for me

I’ve been self-employed for two decades and haven’t had any professional development support in that time. I was working to the point of exhaustion, mental shut-down.

Alan was able to give me clarity, future vision and also some effective methods for managing specific situations. Alan is fantastic: a career-coach, counsellor and psychotherapist rolled into one. I recommend him highly.

I started to feel like a whole weight was being lifted

After my first session with Alan I was instantly sure that I had made the right decision in seeking help. I have learnt some amazing things about myself and some great techniques when dealing with problems, without Alan’s help I know I would have struggled through the rest of my life.

Within two sessions my panic attacks had stopped

His friendly and laid back manner always put me at ease no matter what we were discussing, and although he let me lead the sessions, he always made sure there was structure behind his coaching and goals to achieve.

I am a different person thanks to the work Alan and I did togther, and I am very indebted to him for all his help and support. I could not recommend his services highly enough.

My sessions with Alan were an oasis of calm

His patience and integrity gave me the courage to examine some painful experiences, and together we established a base from which I could re-evaluate my emotions and behaviour. As a result I have been able to make some life-changing decisions with greater confidence and identify those things that are really important to me. A liberating experience. Thank you Alan.

My sessions were invaluable in helping me cope

I went to see Alan earlier this year when I was going through a difficult time. I was pretty apprehensive about counselling but he came very highly recommended by a friend. I felt a huge sense of relief immediately after I saw him for the first time. Alan is kind, easy going, very intelligent and incredibly insightful.

Alan guided me through a concise but hugely freeing process

I set goals to clarify and explore my potential to develop myself and my business as a self-employed person, supported by Alan’s coaching.

Alan’s calm and clear approach enabled me to recognise where I am coming from and heading towards. I feel empowered and motivated to manifest this change. Thank you Alan.

with Alan I felt an incredible sense of reassurance

The great thing about the sessions was that they didn’t feel clinical. On many occasions it just felt like I wasn’t in a counselling session at all and just chatting to a friend.Throughout my experience, I really trusted Alan. He was my greatest source of guidance through this tough emotional journey.

It didn’t take long for Alan to help

He has also shown great support in coaching me on how to deal with my fears in both my work and private life, which has increased my confidence and made me realise perhaps life isn’t as scary after all.

I would highly recommend Alan as both a counsellor and life coach to anyone needing a guiding hand to take the next steps in building your future the way you want it to be.

Alan helped me survive a major life crisis

with understanding, gentle guidance and showed me the path away from a potential “no win” situation to a much more positive outcome than I could have ever imagined. He aided me in concentrating on what was important and making the changes to attain what I always desired.

Alan has offered a safe, structured environment to explore new directions

Alan has a strong ability to help you explore and set new directions. He is positive and forward looking and he has taught me to be less scared of the uncertainty that change brings. He has therefore offered a refreshing perspective that other people, who are fearful of change, can struggle to offer.
