Dr Maria Thompson
I am a BPS RAPPS Registered Supervisor, an SDS Accredited Clinical Supervisor, Level 3 (Advanced) and a QCoP Approved Co-ordinating Supervisor.
I have completed eleven supervision training courses in addition to that of my clinical training, over the years. (see: https://desideratumpsychologicalandcounsellingservices.com/supervision.html for further details). As Placement Co-ordinator at the University of Wolverhampton, I managed the supervisory assessment of the counselling psychologist trainees during their doctoral training. This involved placement visits, dealing with issues on placement as well as mid-term and end of term assessments of the supervisee’s progress and effective use of supervision.
Although I completed training for the Qualification in Counselling Psychology in 2012, I have remained up-to-date by completing the BPS approved training for clinical supervision in 2021 as well as successfully completing the updated QCoP training (new modules 1 and 2) in 2021 to support candidates interested in completing the BPS QCoP Independent Route. I also went onto complete assessed Advanced Clinical Supervision training in the same year to Level 3.
In clinical practice at various settings, I have supervised counsellors, assistant psychologists, psychologists in training, qualified counselling and clinical psychologists. I have delivered individual and group supervision to Nurses, Support workers and Prison Officers. I have consulted in the care and support of staff by managers and provide external supervisor to Counselling Psychologists in Training at local universities.
Private or organisationally funded, Individual clinical Supervision or group clinical supervision is available to counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling psychologist trainees, qualified psychologists and allied professionals (for example, Nurses, Social Workers, Prison Officers, Support Workers) in relation to their professional development and clinical work.
Each clinical supervision is tailored to the personal, clinical or organisational issues raised by the practitioner(s) for consideration within relevant psychological frameworks and supervision models.
