For the past three years, he has been counselling predominantly but not exclusively, children and young people at The Almond Tree Counselling Service, a Merthyr-based charity. Menny also runs a small private practice.
"Within the community-based settings of the charity, as well as supervising three trainees and a senior practitioner, I work with a number of children and young people mostly presenting with the damaging consequences of trauma and attachment difficulties.
It is very challenging work but it is exponentially rewarding to be in the privileged position of witnessing growth and change and - when the latter endures - these resilient and brave young people never fail to remind me that their potential is our future and our responsibility to facilitate and value.
I enrolled on the Postgraduate Diploma in Consultative Supervision in order to validate and consolidate my supervisory skills by studying a course that has a huge reputation in this professional field.
I enjoyed each teaching unit however Supervising Within Organisational Context offered a learning that was encouraging in light of the position I hold as In-House Supervisor, but also empowering and thought provoking. At the end of it, I felt a sense of growing confidence for the variety of career perspectives these transferable skills unlock.
What's more, group supervision became much easier to facilitate, to the benefit of my supervisees who are enjoying a more constructive and cooperative approach to supervision.
I am confident that this course would benefit any therapist who is supervising, yet I feel that managers of organisations within the health and social care sectors would also greatly benefit from it.
The bottom line is I would unreservedly recommend this course to anyone. It is delivered with passion and by lecturers that have a wealth of experience in this field."
