I help supervisees build insight into their role and a deeper understanding of the interaction between themselves and the clients. Addiction work differs in key ways from many other areas of therapeutic work, and requires specialized supervision to navigate the broad areas of case management and therapeutic alliance.

Counselling work is challenging and the support and guidance of an experienced and non-judgmental supervisor can make all the difference to enjoying this path.
