Peter De Santis
Supervision with Peter
I am an experienced supervisor working face-to-face online, as well as offering telephone work.
My experience as a facilitator encompasses a wide variety of contexts including both private and institutional settings. For example, I have lots of experience working with young people in my role as a student counsellor in a higher-education setting, and I have worked with addiction in a few alcohol and drug settings. I am also very familiar working within a short-term and long-term model, as well as having experience working with high-risk clients (e.g. self-harm, suicide, trauma, complex issues, etc.). As a supervisor, my aim is to provide a space to support you with your client work, and ultimately to help you discover, develop, and/or trust your own authentic style. Although I will generally be acting in a supervisory role, both our perspectives and experiences will be valuable components of a collaborative relationship.
My training was based on the existential-phenomenological approach, and that is a core component of how I interact with supervisees and clients, although I integrate aspects from other modalities including cognitive-behavioural therapy, solution-focused therapy, schema therapy, psychodynamic therapy, person-centered therapy, and mindfulness. I tend to work with any therapeutic approach because, in my view, how instrumental or effective an approach is in practice is more valuable than its theoretical justifications or implications.
Please feel free to contact me by email or phone (you can also leave a voicemail message if I'm unavailable), and I will respond as soon as I can.
