Supervision

I graduated as a Supervisor at CCPE (Transpersonal and Integrative) in 2000. 

Rather than shoehorn client's issues into one theoretical model of psychotherapy, I advocate a more client-centred approach, working integratively to tailor the therapy to the client's needs.  

I am supportive of my supervisees, trying always to meet their expectations and to increase their 'toolkit' of interventions and techniques.  As Abraham Maslow said "If you only have a hammer, you will treat everything as a nail".  

There's an art to recognising what ails your client and what might help most at a particular point in time.  As well as a sound knowledge of a variety of theoretical perspectives I encourage the ability to hold an optimistic, playful and curious stance which I believe can assist the therapeitic process clients, and I model this for my supervisees.  

“Come to the edge” he said
“We can't. We're afraid.
Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We will fall!”
“Come to the edge.” 
And they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.
