Emma Redfern - Counselling Plus Psychotherapy, EMDR & Supervision in Honiton & Topsham, Exeter

I meet face to face with supervisees in central Exeter and Honiton as well as offering supervision via skype and by telephone. I enjoy working with qualified and trainee counsellors. (Currently, I am at capacity and not taking on any more supervisees - as of 19 February 2018. )

I have a particular interest in the quality of the supervisory relationship and how two-way feedback can facilitate a sound working alliance. Please see an article Feedback in Supervision that was published in October 2014 in Volume 25, Issue 8, pp. 26-29 of Therapy Today, which is the official journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Supervision - what is it for?

  • for the supervisor and supervisee to work together regularly to ensure and develop the efficacy of the counsellor--client relationship
  • to enhance the supervisee's confidence, competence and creativity as counsellor in relationship to self and client
  • to help the supervisee to evolve their practice in terms of ongoing self-development, continued learning and self-monitoring
  • to assist the supervisee in maintaining ethical practice
  • to assist the supervisee's application of theory to practice


  • What I bring to the supervisory relationship

  • I am a BACP Senior-Accredited Supervisor of Individuals
  • I have completed supervision training with the Centre for Supervision and Team Development (Hawkins and Shohet)
  • active and ongoing learning about being a supervisor/offering supervision
  • 10+ years of learning and experience in the counselling field (as client, trainee, counsellor, tutor and supervisor)
  • experience of being a supervisee in a one-to-one relationship, in peer supervision and group supervision
  • a great appreciation for the therapeutic potential in the client-counsellor relationship
  • a desire to enjoy our relationship (and to help you do the same) as we work together co-creatively in service of the client and in tending to your personal and professional development
  • the intention to facilitate the growth of your own self-monitoring
  • support for you as a person and as a professional
  • the ability to provide a safe space for you to reflect upon the content and process of your work
