Keith E Smith
I bring to supervision many years experience as a practitioner, manager and lecturer (in Psychotherapeutic Counselling).
I have supervised the work of many counsellors, as well as social and mental health workers over a considerable period of time.
My approach to the supervisory relationship is one that prizes honesty, support and mutual challenge.
I am particularly informed by psychodynamic ways of thinking and hold a Diploma in Group Analysis, as well as an MSc in Counselling Psychology.
Having taught quite a range of therapeutic perspectives to counsellors on postgraduate courses over the years, I can see the value of both integration and more 'exclusive' approaches to therapeutic work.
The right supervisory relationship is essential for safe and progressive practice, and for personal development.
Please contact me to discuss your supervision needs and to perhaps arrange a free intial meeting to explore this further.
