Supervision is an important support for your professional development and can help you grow your practice, expand your skills as well as ensure the safety and well-being of both yourself and your clients.
Many therapists and coaches enjoy learning from a variety of approaches, and my supervision, while grounded in my Gestalt therapy training, also includes systemic thinking, influences from existential and spiritual practices as well as a focus on embodied experience.
Rather than from one fixed school of thought, my supervision approach is relational, which means the focus of our work will be on exploring, and better making sense of, what might be happening between you and your client, and how this is affected by the wider context for both of you. We will also apply the same lense to our supervision work together, aiming to find new possibilities where stuck or learn new things about yourself through these relationships.
NOTE: I offer supervision with UK practitioners one-to-one online via Zoom only.
The fee is 85£ for a 60 minute one-to-one supervision session. These usually take place monthly or fortnightly.
Group supervision fees to be discussed.
Topics we could work on (for example)...
- how to grow your practice and finding your ‘niche’
- adapting safely and ethically to various contexts (agencies, short-term work, businesses)
- switching between therapy and coaching and where you stand
- holding boundaries
- clear contracting
- practical issues such as marketing, rooms, insurance, data protection your feelings about money, charging fees, and making the transition from unpaid work
- self-confidence, 'not feeling ready' or 'saying no'
- how to incorporate creative experiments into your existing approach
- explore counter-transference and difficult feelings that arise in your work
- identifying your strengths, vulnerabilities and growing edges
- managing risk and boosting your self-support
- developing your own style - incorporating new approaches or letting go of old ones
I have worked for several years as a team leader at The Awareness Centre with the NHS IAPT, where I helped a team of over 25 therapists in their placements through to qualification.
I have several years of experience working as a coach for startup founders and people who want to make a business out of their passion, and have co-led groups of 40-50 people through career change and life change programmes at Escape the City as well as run creative workshops for children and adults myself.
I successfully set up my own group practice The London Practice in Central London and now a second group practice in Berlin Germany, and have informally helped newly qualified therapists in finding their style as a practitioner and their feet in starting out on their own.
I look forward to hearing from you at email@example.com
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
