Why supervision

Supervision is an important support for your professional development and can help you grow your practice, expand your skills as well as ensure 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.

My approach

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.

I offer supervision one-to-one online via Zoom.

Fees

While I have practiced as a therapist for over 10 years, I am only now completing my supervision training (through Relational Change, will be UKCP accredited). Therefore, I offer supervision at a 50% reduced fee of my regular therapy fee of £70 (£35 per supervision session). I am open to further consession depending on your situation. After I have qualified, the sessions would be charged at the same rate as my client work.

A little about my previous experience in leading/training groups:

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 have successfully set up my own group practice The London Practice, and have informally helped newly qualified therapists in finding their style as a practitioner and their feet in starting out on their own. 

We could work together on topics like:

  • how to grow your practice and finding your ‘niche’
  • adapting safely and ethically to various contexts (agencies, short-term work, businesses)
  • practical issues such as marketing, rooms, insurance, data protection
  • your feelings about money, charging fees, and making the transition from unpaid work
  • self-confidence and 'not feeling ready'
  • 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 look forward to hearing from you at alex@thelondonpractice.org

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
