Supervision details

No availability for psychotherapist/counsellor, on-going supervision.

However, I may be able to offer you occasional consultation - request by email.

You need to commit inline with your ethical body at least once per month for 1.5 hours. About you: You will need to be qualified as a counsellor or psychotherapist.

Supervision can help you to be more self-aware in your practice, to help you provide your best - whatever profession. It can also help prevent 'burn out'. You must be qualified, insured and a member of a professional body inc. BACP, NCPS, BSP or UKCP - and check that their requirements for your professional supervision I am trained in many different therapies, I have a lot of organisational experience and knowledge around trauma & attachment.

I cannot see you for counselling/psychotherapy supervision if you have ever been my client for therapy and vice versa.

Occasional consultation £80 per 50 mins. I gives you the opportunity to get something different to your regular supervision, you will get my thoughts, maybe some of my answers, and different ideas.

There is no commitment necessary, as this should be in addition to your clinical supervision. Confidential. No reduced fees I do not give reports for those seeking accreditation etc. I am also not the person to see if you're wanting someone give you the 'seal of approval' for Certified in Brainspotting, EMDR, LI, or IFS Therapy etc.

In my supervision and consultation I can also integrate Brainspotting and IFS to help you be more present and effective with your clients.  I have completed certified training in Supervision which is endorsed by The British Psychological Society. BACP's requirement for you as a supervisee is that your supervisor is more experienced than you, and is able to challenge your work, and help you to look at it objectively. 

I will help you find your way of doing therapy, through challenging and supporting you, and your practice. My aim is to help you to become a better robust therapist and self-aware practitioner. Core training - Person Centred. CBT training. Clinical Hypnotherapy, Brainspotting, EMDR, Eye Movement Integration & IFS. 

British Psychology Society Approved Training in Supervision gained in 2014 - 10 years post counselling qualification, with over 10,000 therapeutic hours. I've supervised teachers, counsellors, psychotherapists working in charities, organisations, private health, NHS, and schools. I understand that supervision is usually a longer-term commitment and that the relationship is important for you to feel safe enough to be transparent about your practice. 

Research has found supervision should be regular and often for it to be most helpful. Due to the number of organisations I have worked for, I have had a lot of 'supervision' from a lot of managers and therapists. I have also had 5 different personal supervisors that I have used my private practice.

I have supervised qualified professionals who are qualified in Brainspotting, CBT, Integrative, IFS and Person Centred therapies. I have also assisted on several Brainspotting trainings Phase 1, 2, & 3. I have also trained and presented to small - large groups. I also take on non-psychotherapist professionals requiring or wanting their own external supervision, place to off-load, and reflect on their practice. Feedback: “Chris is a very knowledgeable and supportive supervisor. His wide breadth of understanding of different modalities has helped me to evaluate my practice and review areas where I have felt stuck with clients. His willingness to consider my point of view, even when perhaps we haven’t fully agreed, has enabled me to step back from ideas which I have been holding on to and to reconsider things in different ways to the benefit of my clients.” If you're interested, email in the first instance.
