‘The process of supervision is at the heart of the training and continuing professional development of professional counsellors and therapists. Geoff Miles, as an integrative supervisor, is a key part of my long established private practice.
As an experienced practitioner, it is still essential for me to have regular supervision sessions with Geoff to enjoy a secure frame for thinking and exploration of therapeutic work.
