Dr Mo Mandic
I offer existential supervision for both qualified and trainee therapists. I have some 11 years' experience in supporting supervisees to reflect on their approach, the issues that they bring, as well as the existential resonances that are being expressed in the presentations of their work with clients. I draw on the existential insights of Heidegger, Jaspers, Sartre, and Merleau-Ponty, but am also influenced by the work of Lev Shestov, Benjamin Fondane, and Emil Cioran, who I feel intensify the very existential givens that are being articulated by the later existentialists mentioned.
My existential approach to supervision offers an exploration of the various possible ways of working with clients, from the phenomenological, the dialectic, the hermeneutic, and to Heidegger's 'formally indicative' approach. This is undergirded by a solid understanding of existential philosophy, which I endeavour to convey in very practical and concrete terms.
As well as providing personal supervision, I am a clinical and academic supervisor at both Regent's University London, and also the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling.
