Testimony of Supervisee

As mature student currently undertaking a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling I feel that I have and continue to benefit greatly from engaging in the developmentally collaborative and supportive relationship I share with Hugh. Despite being an individual experienced in life including employment relating to Mental Health, and believing I am pretty well versed in the theoretical principles attached to my studies, I found the prospect of engaging in the professional and yet very individual relationship of supervision a daunting prospect.

Choosing the right person with which one can identify, and be identified with by, is paramount. The open, warm and un-expectant manner in which Hugh engaged in our introductory meeting, allayed my concerns. The decision to enter into supervision with Hugh was a good one. To describe Hugh from my individual perspective I would say that he is not only nurturing and knowledgeable, but for me he fits my personal beliefs of “keeping it significant” and “Keeping it real”.
