I offer an integrative supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists designed to underpin and promote reflective and informed practice. I use Hawkins and Shohets' seven eyed model of supervision. This takes in
focus on the client focus on the therapist’s interventions focus on the client-therapist relationship focus on the therapist’s process focus on the therapist-supervisor relationship focus on the supervisor’s process focus on the wider context.
In my own practice, I aim to bring together
psychoanalytic insights transactional analysis some existentialism and CBT a humanistic approach.
All elements of this integration can be brought to bear both on an understanding of my supervisee’s client and on the supervision itself. It is not essential for a supervisee to use the same integration as myself. This will be a ‘person-centred' supervision which starts with an analysis of the skills and knowledge which the supervisee needs to develop initially and throughout, and will emphasise proper organisation and administration. I hold the Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals and Groups awarded by The Grove.
