and Coaching

Synergy offers individual clinical supervision for counsellors, psychotherapists and other professionals. We also provide coaching and supervision services for businesses and teams.

‘Supervision helps you reflect on your work and learn from it’
– Mike Worrall

Counsellors and Psychotherapists are required to have supervision every month for them to practice ethically and competently. This work will always be with a more experienced psychotherapist and trained supervisor, who will enable you to review your practice with clients. Supervision will focus on the interactions between supervisor, counsellor and client.

The aim is to enhance best practice, build on strengths and address developmental areas. Supervision will support and enhance the individual’s professional and organisational objectives which may include: following best practice, adhering to an ethical framework, accountability, personal support and growth, and continual professional development. All of this is based on confidentiality.

The Seven Eyes

Our supervision model is based on Shohet and Hawkins’ work described in their book – ‘Supervision in the helping professions’ (2012). They refer to the … the ‘seven eyes’ which describe the seven different ways of looking at the client presentation and related relationships.

the seven eyes focus on:

  1. Client details – understanding context
  2. Supervisee’s interventions
  3. Client–supervisee relationship
  4. Supervisee’s own experiences of being with the client
  5. Supervisor–supervisee relationship
  6. Supervisor’s own reflections
  7. Wider context of the work
