Rachel J Stewart Accred. Member BABCP, MBACP
I am a CBT supervisor, within the NHS and privately. I have been supervising IAPT trainees and colleagues since 2016 and thoroughly enjoy this role. As a supervisor, I use the cake stand model and find this provides a good framework for supervision. I am very interested in therapist wellbeing and therefore will always 'check-in' with supervisees as part of the session.
The emphasis of both CBT and its supervision is on mutual trust, openness, practice, experience, facilitation of change, building on existing strengths, building conceptualisation skills, application of new skills, empowering the supervisee with change skills, using objective measures as well as actively eliciting and responding to feedback.
