Supervision is an ethical requirement for student or qualified counsellors registered with a professional body, such as the BACP. Alan Morris is an experienced qualified supervisor in Oswestry, Shropshire. He can offer supervision to trainees and counselling mentoring to already-qualified counsellors.

Offering supervision services to counsellors and therapists in Oswestry, Shrewsbury. Wrexham, Shropshire, North Wales and Mid Wales.

An experienced counsellor with over 800 hours practice working with a wide range of issues. These include stress, anxiety, relationship issues and addictions. In 2015 I qualified as a supervisor and have experience of guiding student counsellors through their practice.

I have my own private practice in Oswestry. Previously working for 7 years for a voluntary organisation in Oswestry.

What I can offer student counsellors

I know how difficult it is to balance studying, gaining the practice hours needed to qualify as well as any career
and family commitments. There is a lot to do for a student counsellor whether gaining their qualification through a diploma or a degree.

I will be committed to my supervisees professional development and will assist them in their practice, providing a relaxed but authoritative service using the accepted leading supervision model. I support my supervisees and testimonials
are available if required.

My philosophy towards supervision

Supervision is not just a mandatory requirement but in my experience an enjoyable one and beneficial.

I see my role as a bridge between theory and practice. Clearly the theory aspect will be provided by the student counsellors training provider, I see my responsibility to make relevant the theory taught and how it applies to the student counsellors practice.

The first duty of a counselling supervisor is towards the clients, to achieve this the student counsellor has to feel comfortable in their practice.

The model I use is Shohet and Hawkins Seven-eyed model which is the leading supervision model in the United Kingdom.

Qualified Counsellors

I also offer a supervision service to Qualified counsellors. This is more of a 'sounding board' as counsellors we are always learning and coming across different presentations.
