Sutton Counselling is seeking two supervisors to join our team of experienced supervisors.  You should be a qualified and experienced psychodynamic or psychoanalytic counsellor or psychotherapist who has BACP accreditation, or UKCP or BPC registration.  A supervision qualification is desirable, or a willingness to undertake one.

The vacancies are for:

Mondays (7.00 – 8.30pm) to commence in January 2020

Thursday (1.20-2.50pm) to commence in February 2020

Sutton Counselling is a BACP accredited voluntary counselling agency providing psychodynamic counselling to the community of South West London and North West Surrey, at a fee which is affordable according to a client’s means.  We have 36 counsellors providing up to 115 sessions per week and they are supported by nine supervisors. We are a registered charity and were established in 2001.

Supervision takes place weekly for 1.5 hours in groups of four voluntary counsellors, the majority of whom are in training.  Groups are held at our premises in Central Sutton, close to road, bus and rail links.

The supervisor’s role is to ensure that high clinical standards are maintained, to support the counsellors in their work with clients and to ensure that they are working within the ethos and procedures of Sutton Counselling.  This includes providing supervisory oversight of ongoing clinical work and discussing newly assessed clients allocated to a counsellor. Supervisors also conduct an annual appraisal with each counsellor and participate in our annual supervisor appraisal scheme.  They may also be asked to complete college reports for trainee counsellors.

These are self-employed roles at the remuneration rate of £40 per hour (£60 per weekly session).
