Liz Martins MBACP (Accredited)
I offer supervision to individuals and groups, online or from my practice room in Batheaston.
I also offer consultancy and coaching in Internal Family Systems to therapists.
My model of practice is primarily influenced by Internal Family Systems. I am one of the few people within the UK approved as an IFS Supervisor/Consultant by the IFS Institute. This means that supervision hours with me can be counted towards certification as an IFS Therapist.
I am also Certified in Advanced Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and I am accredited as an EMDR practitioner. My original training was in Psychosynthesis. I have a Diploma in Supervision, awarded by the Centre for Supervision and Team Development (CSTD).
I have a range of experience that informs my work, including private practice, working as a counsellor and supervisor in an agency specialising in providing services following sexual assault, and, in a previous career, as a senior manager providing supervision to front-line staff and managers within a children and families social work service. I have a strong interest in work with trauma.
My aim in supervision is to provide a welcoming and reflective space and to offer "whatever seems most likely to send you away more aware, more informed, skilled, and encouraged than you were when you came in" (Houston 1990).
