Laura Ann Douglas
I would describe my supervisory style as a psychologically integrative approach to promote insight and reflection. I help to identify choices and responsibilities to provide an environment for growth and change.
Supervision is specifically tailored to meet the needs of supervisees and their clients. My own ('home-base') core modalities, include person-centred, transactional analysis, CBT, NLP and psycho-educational models.
I achieve self-management through personal responsibility in record keeping and continued professional development. Comprehensive understanding and application of the BACP code of Ethics and Good Practice. On going supervised practice.
I have a sound knowledge of the local referral network.

Supervision models I like to use include the Pluralist Model (Cooper & McCleod), and also the Seven Eyed Model (Hawkins & Shohet). For instance, as with the latter model, key areas addressed within supervision include:
- Mode 1 Practice
- Mode 2 Clinical intervention
- Mode 3 System and co-creative dance
- Mode 4 Therapists Counter Transference
- Mode 5 Parallel Process
- Mode 6 The Counter Transference for the Supervisor
- Mode 7 The Wider Context - The Organisational mode
