I am an integrative, relational supervisor and counsellor. My theoretical orientation is based on a combination of Person-centred, Psychodynamic, Systemic and Gestalt thinking (additionally drawing upon the TA model), and the core and foundation of the therapeutic work I do is relational.
At its heart, and at its best, supervision is relational too, offering a co-created way to think more deeply about therapeutic process with client welfare paramount. We will work collaboratively to understand client and therapist process by focussing on the relationships between you and your clients. How do you experience them and yourself in the room, and how do you perceive their experience of you? We’ll look at how these relational dynamics might have developed, illuminated by differing theoretical foundations, and what messages they might have for us about the clients’ internal landscapes.
We will create a space in which we can consider together: “What are we making together? How are we making it? Who are we becoming as we make this?” (W. Barnett Pearce, Making Social Worlds: A Communication Perspective, 2007). All underpinning the greater understanding of what is going on for your clients, and you, in the facilitation of therapeutic process.
I work face to face and by video link via Facetime and WhatsApp, although at this time all work is done via virtual platforms.
Supervision fees are £60 per session, with contact between sessions negotiable, and I offer an initial assessment session free of charge.
