I have supervised counsellors for over 20 years and have over that time used several different methods from Hawkins and Shohet, to Page and Wosket etc. I now concentrate on providing existential supervision and it is this modality in which I have most recently been trained at NSPC /Middlesex University at doctoral level.
You can expect supervision which has an open outlook across many forms of counselling / psychotherapy and which seeks to underpin these methodologies with philosophical understanding gained from study of the works of Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger, Levinas, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Frankl, Yalom, May & Husserl etc. My way of providing supervision also incorporates the Structured Existential Analysis model of Emmy van Deurzen and if you wish you could read her books on the subject prior to undertaking supervision with me. I recommend he book "Everyday Mysteries" and also "Paradox & Passion." I am particularly interested in the phenomenology of emotion and the use of that in counselling and psychotherapy
