Supervision details

I qualified through the Sherwood Institute of Psychotherapy as an Integrative Psychotherapist and Scarborough Institute of Psychotherapy with a post graduate diploma in clinical supervision. My fees are £70. My approach to psychotherapy supervision is based on supporting supervisees to help clients to achieve awareness, intimacy, spontaneity and autonomy. I not only work creatively using Gestalt phenomenological approaches such as those proposed by Yontef but also use the therapeutic engagements of inquiry, attunement, and involvement .  I use these methods because they can support a supervisee to facilitate acknowledgment, validation, normalization and presence for the client. Furthermore, I hold in mind the framework proposed by Richard Erskine’s relational needs concept in which a contactful, interpersonal therapeutic relationship is the central premise. I also work using H.Kohut’s theory of self psychology as well as Carl Rogers positive, unconditional regard. Attachment theory as that proposed by Bowlby and Winnicott as well as Erikson’s child development theory is generally my foundation and through these l can generally get a sense of what underlies the issues of a client’s presenting problem and the parrallel processes that may arise within the supervision process. I feel that Erskine’s eight relational needs fits very much with Carl Rogers six core conditions for satisfactory therapeutic outcomes. Finally, maintenance of firm, clear boundaries and  M.Buber’s concept of “I-Thou” relationship to support supervisees to  maintain a relationship with the client in the "here and now".
