Supervision at The Grove

Our supervisors are integratively trained, so we are able to work with therapists from a range of theoretical backgrounds. Previous supervisees have come from person-centred, Gestalt, psychodynamic trainings. We believe that supervision is crucial for professional development and can be tailored to suit the level of experience and stage of training of the supervisee.

One of the directors of The Grove, Sarah Briggs, is an experienced supervisor and an accredited psychotherapist. She offers supervision for therapists.


Individual supervision

If you are a trainee counsellor or practising psychotherapist looking for supervision, then please get in touch to discuss your requirements. The Grove has a number of supervisors who offer individual sessions, on a regular yet flexible basis. Fees start at £50 + VAT per 50-minute session, depending on your professional circumstances and whether you are a trainee or qualified.

“Supervision really helped me think about how I work with my clients and what is going on under the surface. I learned such a lot and Sarah supervised my placement work while I finished my Diploma hours for college.”


Group supervision

If you are a manager or therapist within an organisation, looking for team supervision, then do contact us to talk about what the team is looking for. The Grove’s supervisors are experienced in facilitating groups of counsellors, key-workers, caseworkers in organisational settings. We can travel to your premises and supervise the group on a monthly or fortnightly basis. Fees start at £75 + VAT per hour – depending on travel time, location and frequency.

Ben McKie, the other director of The Grove, is an experienced supervisor of groups. He can also recommend other supervisors from The Grove’s team.


“ We’ve been going through massive changes in funding and management, that we were really cheesed off and definitely needed space to talk about our caseload. The group was very cagey to begin with, because previously the group felt quite rocky. But when Ben came along as our new supervisor, I felt much better about bringing difficult clients for supervision.”
