Elaine McKenzie, Adv.Dip., MA, UKCP reg'd.
Hello, let me introduce you my creative approach to Clinical Supervision:-
Consultative Supervision is for professionals whether psychotherapist/counsellor/coach or teacher. This support uses the services of another qualified professional to review work with clients, their professional development and often personal development as well. Ongoing professional development being mandatory and key to "growth".
Supervision exists for the following reasons
* to protect clients, and
* to improve the ability of counsellors to provide therapeutic support to their clients within their realm of experience and training. To identify blind spots in order to highlight areas for further training which in turn supports clients with many and complex personal histories.
As a supervisor I work to the UKCP code of practice and incorporate an existential mode of being-with supervisees and clients alike in order to 'co-create therapeutic and developing relationships', key to client and supervisee 'fit'. My training currently a doctorate with a special interest in male issues, personal therapy and practice continues to grow and evolve, it must, an organic process to spread 'knowledge, subjective experience' all to be shared in order that others may profit as I have in supporting and be-ing supported by others in growing and developing continually also. There is no meaning for knowledge without sharing it!
My counselling/psychotherapy experience is extensive and complex, I bring this experience to my supervision practice. My clinical practice is and has been supervised on a weekly basis, my supervision practice is supervised along the same lines in order to maintain safe working practice in line with the UKCP requirements (as above) both on a 1 to 1 basis and within group supervision.
