I work as a supervisor at a Women's Counselling Service and am a registered supervisor for students at Metanoia. I trained in the 7 eyed model of supervision with Robin Shohet and Joan Wilmot at CSTD and have been supervising students and qualified therapists since 2014. In 2021 I did further supervisor training with CSTD at Diploma level.In supervision we pay attention to what is going on in the room between supervisor and supervisee and how that may relate to the client's presentation and needs. We consider bodily senses and how they may inform work with each client. I believe in supporting the supervisee to recognise where there may be resonance with her or his own material and how that may be safely validated and managed.I greatly enjoy working collaboratively with the therapist to give both the therapist and her/his clients a meaningful and healing therapeutic experience.
