Supervisor Donna Christina Savery MBACP Reg, IGA Assoc Member Harley St & Bucks
Are you looking for a supervisor who is open to exploring your feelings and thoughts and who will try to help you to understand your role and to shed light upon less conscious aspects of your work. I offer individual supervision to individual and group therapists. Having worked as an academic for many years before becoming a therapist, I have developed skills to nurture and develop potential and I apply these creativitely to my work. If you sometimes lack confidence, or want to be challenged and supported and develop intellectually and as a practitioner I offer a welcoming environment to do so.
For those working in private practice I provide weekly supervision face to face or online. My approach is both psychodynamic and existential, where I support you to try to understand what is happening not just for your client but in your own countertransference and to help you think about how this might inform your work. I also provide help with listening for existential anxiety or angst (aspects of the human condition) and not just the presenting problem and draw upon my training in existential therapy and daseinsanalysis for this. Finally if you are working with complex mental health issues or see individuals suffering narcissistic or Echoistic problems or other personality disorders I will draw upon my own expertise and research into this area to support you in doing this difficult work.
I also offer small group supervision where I facilitate the group in bringing their own clinical experiences to bear on the clinical work of the individual therapist. I try to create groups where different trainings and modalities can enhance thinking about clients and patients, and offer insight into the therapist's own defences or intuitive feelings. In instances where there may not be a suitable group I offer individual supervision until such times as a group place becomes available or a suitable group can be created.
I am informed in my work by psychoanalytic principles and group analytic training, and draw upon my background in existential therapy. I have experience of working with individuals and in running groups in both mental health settings and the private sphere.
Fees are £50 individuals (50 minutes) and £40 (90 minute) small group supervision.
