Terry Shevlin, MSc Counselling, Certified Psychotherapist, Senior accred BACP
Terry is a BACP Senior Accredited Clinical Supervisor of both 'Individuals' and 'groups'.
He uses a collegial supervision style, utilising a 'cyclical model' (Page and Woskett), and Hawkins' and Shohet's 7 eye model. 'Mindfulness' and 'Focusing' are ways of working that Terry offers to deepen the supervision experience.
As a former tutor of Counselling students, and on the current University of Ulster approved list, Terry can offer students a supportive supervision experience, recognising the pressures that training to become a counsellor entail.
'Supervision of Supervision' otherwise known as 'Supervision consultation' is a professional requirement for all supervisors and as a Senior Accredited Supervisor Terry can provide this service. He was formerly the lead tutor on a level 6 CPCAB course, delivering training to counsellors wishing to become supervisors, so is current in practice and theoretical knowledge.
A particular specialism offered in supervision is for colleagues who work with trauma issues. Terry's training in somatic based trauma therapy (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy) is especially relevant for ensuring safe practice and self-care, and current research would strongly suggest that counsellors working with trauma clients seek out such experience levels in their supervision.
