Independently gathered feedback for my ‪#‎supervision‬ practice

"I have known Phil as a supervisor for several years (Group and Individual).

Phil is knowledgeable, professional, warm and supportive. He uses a strengths based, collaborative approach, that encourages participation of all, promoting maximum learning and development. His ethical knowledge is vast, which underpins all discussions.

Phil transformed my experience of group supervision, and serves as a great role model for a future qualification as a supervisor. Highly recommended."

"Phil is absolutely brilliant at what he does . He is very approachable and the genuine interest he takes in helping you unravel your story shows his passion for his work. The way in which Phil facilitates our sessions is empowering; he enables me to turn my fears into strengths, to understand the workings of my mind and helps me to look at things from different angles as to clearly understand the possible causes and outcomes of my emotions and actions. The effects of our sessions are long lasting, enabling me to use the tools I acquire during the sessions even after a long break between visits. A very professional service. Will definitely use sunflower counselling again and highly recommend this service."

"I went to Phil in a very desperate state of mind with mental health issues and not able to wait for an nhs appointment. 

I had used councillers in the past without much success so i was sceptical at first. 

Phil offered me a different way of managing my issues. Rather than just talking about my issues (which did happen) I was able to look at how to manage myself and my issues on a daily basis through different methods. 

Through the guidance of Phil and various scenarios we went through,I was able to work out what my issues were and accept and understand some of the things that troubled me. 

I found I did a lot of the talking and problem solving myself which at first worried me a bit, but with Phils guidance my life has now improved a lot and I have the tools in place to battle my mental health issues 

I would highly recommend Phil and would be happy to use his services in the future.

"The service I received was always professional and compassionate and I consistently felt I was listened to, heard and understood in a truly genuine manner. What also struck me was how there were no blurring of boundaries, as I had recently qualified in the same profession. The relationship was always 'client' and 'therapist' which was very clear from the beginning and very much appreciated, as previous counselling experiences had created confusion for me when the relationship became confused and at times I was unsure whether I was with my counsellor, supervisor or tutor."

"Phil was really great, and whilst i hate to use the term life changing, the sessions were life changing. 

He has a great manner, and was very good at bringing out myself to myself. I learned a lot about myself, and I would recommend Phil to anyone else who wants a counsellor who listens and works with you. 

Highly recommended to anyone!"
