I started working as a Clinical Supervisor for counsellors and psychotherapists of all orientations, during the time I co-ran a Counselling Service for the Community Network (Adult Mental health Day Services) in 2002. I then qualified as an Arts Therapy Supervisor in 2008 with the Sesame Institute for Movement and Drama therapy. ( Also Recognised by BADth, the British Association of Dramatherapists).
I currently supervise Arts Therapists, Counsellors and Psychotherapists. My approach as a supervisor is similar to the way I work as a therapist. I work with a Process model of Supervision- the Seven-Eyed Supervisor Model, based on Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet' s book; Supervision in the Helping Professions. Drawing, therapeutic cards with images, stones, movement and role-play can also be used to explore what is happening between the therapist and client, or to explore an issue that has arisen in the therapy
