Dr Stella Compton Dickinson
Looking for effective supervision? I am an ACAT accredited clinical supervisor with many years of experience in cognitive analytic, trauma-based, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral models. Depending on the orientation and training of the supervisee any or all of these can be of value.
As a trained healthcare researcher who has implemented a randomized controlled trial, (from which I gained my doctorate) I take a truly integrative, evidence-based and collaborative approach. With this knowledge and direct clinical experience, I aim to meet the needs of my supervisees, supporting and challenging appropriately so that you can safely develop your skills and share your clinical concerns.
I take into account diverse treatment contexts and how organizational dynamics can impact on the clinical process, offering restorative techniques to ensure your own well-being. As a former Head of Department, and Clinical Research Lead I developed and supervised a team of Music and Art Psychotherapists. I left NHS forensic psychiatric services in 2013 to focus on community-based private practice, supervising, and clinical publishing.
I am committed to supporting and developing clinicians from different therapeutic disciplines at any stage of their career. I provide individual supervision internationally, using secure remote access technology for those who cannot travel, as well as one to one and group supervision at North London clinics. http://www.project-me.co.uk. and inSouth Central London:
Keats House, 24-26 St Thomas Street, Guy's Hospital, London Bridge SE1 9RS
I may incorporate mindfulness and embodied techniques that help in emotional regulation. You will be able to reflect safely on the challenges of the clinical work and the parallel processes which may occur. In group supervision, you will also be able to learn from others. You are welcome to phone me for an informal 15-minute chat to discuss your needs. If you decide to book a session there is no further obligation unless this feels right for you.
