Harriet Gardiner MBACP (Accred)
* COVID-19 I am currently providing all supervision sessions by telephone or Zoom.* I have spaces for new supervisees on a Friday afternoon in central Leeds and on a Monday daytime in Far Headingley. I would also be happy to discuss and arrange new and on going supervision by telephone or videocall.
I have over 20 years of experience as a counsellor and have worked in the voluntary sector, education, the NHS, and private practice.
From my own experience I understand the importance of a solid, safe and collaborative supervisory relationship to support and enhance practice. I aim to provide a non-judgemental, containing and curious space for you to reflect, explore, build confidence and develop your clinical practice.
My therapeutic work is relationally based, and this also holds for my supervision approach. I aim for us to work together to develop a greater understanding of your clients, your relationship with them, and yourself as a therapist. Our relationship will, of course, be a part in that and I hope to build an alliance where we can be honest, creative, explore the parallel processes, and take risks and challenge where appropriate.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in the understanding of relational patterns - understanding the development of these and the impact they have on our current relationships, and forming new ways to respond. Amongst other things my work is informed by attachment theory, object relations theory, interpersonal neurobiology, body work and mindfulness.
I offer supervision to therapists working with adults.
I charge £45 an hour for supervision. £67.50 for 1.5hours
