John Fletcher Registered MBACP Reg. (Accred.) AHPP UKCP
I offer person centred supervision to individuals and groups. My supervision is based on the fundamental person centred principles of the actualising tendency and the six conditions.
Whilst client narratives are always an integral part of supervision, the primary focus of my person centred supervision is to enable supervisees to develop their potential to become fully present in the relationship with the client through becoming increasingly open to their experiencing as therapists.
Only when the therapist is fully present in the relationship can the client be fully met. Only when the client feels fully met can Condition 6 be achieved, i.e. the client feels received and change and growth become possible.
For the the person centred therapist working in this way a profound belief and embodiment of the six conditions, especially the core conditions. is essential. In particular, it is through the development of their own congruence that therapist presence is achieved. I would hope that I bring this quality to my supervision.
The more a therapist can can develop the capacity to fully meet their clients at depth the greater potential they create for their clients to achieve the change they seek.
I have a BACP endorsed Certificate in Person Centred Supervision.
