Hello, my name is Amanda Brockman and I am a Relational Supervisor I believe clinical supervision is essential within the counselling profession, it offers guidance and support for those starting their journey and for those who are experienced practitioners. As a Relational Supervisor I provide a space where you can identify and challenge any blind spots, overcome biases and become more aware of unconscious processes that occur within the client-counsellor and supervisor-supervisee relationships.
Through my own experience of supervision, I value the importance of being able to access a safe and non-shaming space where I can reflect on my practice and my process within it especially when its not going well. My personal experiences underpin my core philosophy in my supervisory work.
I believe that the supervisory relationship is at the heart of the work i.e. An appropriate supervisory relationship can facilitate you the supervisee to extend your therapeutic skills. I offer an analytical space to be curious about the three way relationship between client, therapist and supervisor. It can be employed to provide insights for developing your practice and used to focus on relational issues in order to cultivate your clients resources.
Please contact me if you feel my approach fits with your therapeutic style.
