Clinical Supervision

Hello and thank you for visiting this section, on my Clinical Supervision services.   


I  provide Clinical Supervision services to Counsellors, Psychotherapists, support workers, health professionals and case workers in helping professions.


I have been trained by NHS Suffolk as a Clinical Supervisor, as well as in-house training by some of the organisations I have been Service Manager of.  I have also completed BACP endorsed CPD courses in Clinical Supervision.  I have expertise on both one-to-one and group supervision.


I have been Service Manager, Clinical Supervisor and Specialist Services Team Leader within leading UK charities and the NHS.  These services, under my Clinical Supervision and guidance, have always successfully achieved, met and exceeded all audits and inspections by both the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Office for Standards in Education, Childrens Services and Skills (OFSTED).


I have been awarded for my work with the Military at the US Air Force Base in Lakenheath, Suffolk. 


If you would like further informaion, please do contact me.


Best wishes


Dean Parsons  Ad. Prof. Dip.PC MNCS (Acc).
