Supervisor Julie Iannucci MSc, UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, PG Cert Couples Work.
I did my supervision training at the Metanoia Institute London, and I am a qualified supervisor with a Certificate in the Principles of the Theory and Practice of Supervision awarded by Metanoia. My training is based upon an integrative relational approach to supervision and supervisory practice.
More specifically, my approach to supervision draws mainly on my clinical theoretical orientation in Relational Gestalt Psychotherapy and its influence by other systems including modern systems of psychoanalysis and relational therapy generally (de Young 2013). Relational supervision can be distinguished from goal orientated, authority driven models of supervision with key elements including the centrality of the relationship, supervision as a two way street involving a bi-directional process and the need to contextualise intra-psychic life as an outcome of relationship.
What this means in terms of my philosophy and practice of supervision is that I offer a collaborative supervisory relationship with a process that is experiential and dialogical rather than interpretive. I see supervision as an adult to adult learning process based on a commitment to dialogue with my role primarily facilitating awareness and contact, helping supervisees gain confidence and facilitating identification of their own alternatives. I offer a number of key skills to bring about this collaborative principle; a non-judgemental stance, holistic presence, a focus on descriptive phenomenology, attention to co-transference issues and a field theoretical approach.
In terms of working across modalities, I believe my Gestalt training offers a potentially unifying theory of supervision and is open to influence and has been influenced by both the psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural schools, with attention paid to both development theory (attachment theory, object relations theory and inter-subjective psychoanalysis) and to the identification and examination of unexamined beliefs and their potentially constrictive role, whilst maintaining an existential - humanistic core. My use of the phenomenological stance with its acceptance of multiple valid realities is recognised not only by Gestalt practitioners but across a range of relational theoretical orientations, particularly humanistic, transpersonal and some integrative approaches and is itself a potentially unifying factor within supervision across orientations.
I have experience in providing both individual and group supervision.
