Katherine Caffrey MBACP – Supervision

Supervision philosophy

Supervision is an ethical requirement for counsellors, but it is also a vital resource for others in the helping professions, to help avoid burnout and to help keep you and your clients are safe.

I aim to provide a warm, safe, professional environment for you to explore all aspects of your work.

I will endeavour to encourage your development and effectiveness as a counsellor or practitioner while ensuring that you maintain safe, professional and ethical standards of practice.

For all practitioners you will have the opportunity to explore your work in a safe space to help gain insight, perspective and avoid burnout.

For counsellors, the needs of your clients will be the main focus of our work, but also there will be time for you to look at your own needs, as I believe that your well-being is vital to ensure good working practice. This will include exploring any issues that arise that impact on your work while maintaining the boundaries between supervision and personal therapy.


Supervision with qualified counsellors should take place at least once each month following BACP guidelines.

When working with trainee counsellors I abide by BACP ethical guidance on frequency.
