I am a qualified Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Supervisor. I specialise in both High and Low Intensity CBT and can work with general CBT practitioners or practitioners who desire to sustain the IAPT protocol and principles. In addition, I can offer support to practitioners with an Integrative approach to counselling.
As you are aware, supervision is a complex practice since its structures varies within therapeutic orientations. However, within my practice I am to provide a structured, affirming and supportive space that is interpersonally focussed on client content, therapeutic care and the development of our practice as professionals. To facilitate our working practice, I will invite you to support this approach by taking responsibility for creating a space where we can see ourselves as collegial partners working collaboratively to improve personal reflection and reflexivity in order to aid our development.
As a matter of practice, I use H.A.S.Q scores after supervision sessions to monitor the effectiveness of our work together and collaborative effort.
