Supervision is part of the process of becoming a therapist and accompanies you through many years of professional work. It is considered an essential part of clinical training and clinical work.
It is often a meaningful source for consultation and support from colleagues.
Supervision gives you the opportunity to capture the mood of the psychotherapeutic process, to acquire knowledge and techniques and to be immersed in both your client's experiences and your own responses to them.
Supervision is a dynamic space where you can embrace new knowledge about both your client and yourself.

Art psychotherapy supervision
Art psychotherapy supervision allows you to bring an image of your client to supervision that you have constructed through your own observations, emotions, and conflicts of the client, the session and the client's artwork allowing you to develop your own approach to treatment.
This approach to supervision allows you as the supervisee to develop a visual language that fits your needs and those of your client evaluating objective observations of the client's work to subjective experiences of the client through the artwork as mediator.
I offer both individual and group supervision for art psychotherapists either fortnightly or monthly.
I work from my quiet and well equipped art psychotherapy studio in Nailsworth.
My fee is £50 per hour for individual supervision and £30 per supervisee for group supervision. Group supervision is for a 1hour 30mins with a maximum 3 supervisees in a group.
Supervision is an established discipline of its own in both psychotherapy and counselling.
Supervision gives you the opportunity to learn but not necessarily to be taught directly. It allows you to make internal shifts of perception and awareness so you can understand your clients and their worlds without becoming therapy.
It helps you develop your clinical work with your clients, understand the impact of organisational issues and the requirements for assessment, ethical practice and clinical responsibility.
As a highly experienced art psychotherapist supervisor I have furtherd my learning by training in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic supervision with Severn & Thames Psychotherapy Network (STPN) in Bristol.
I hope your supervision will be a thorough, unique and rewarding experience for you and will give you the opportunity to develop and grow significantly in your clinical work.
I am able to offer a reduced fee which can be discussed if you are interested.
I look forward to working with you.
