Tanya Nielson Counsellor/Psychotherapist (Snr Accred) Qualified Supervisor
I currently offer supervision to counsellors & psychotherapists who work with children, adolescents and/or adults.I am also currently working at Brighton University as a student counsellor and within private practice.
I consider supervision to be a joint endeavour between the supervisor and supervisee, in attending to the client, the therapist and the wider system in which the work takes place. It is a space where we can revision our thoughts, ideas and attend to our concerns.
I draw upon Shohet and Hawkins 7 eyed model of supervision, developmental, ethical and creative frameworks in my work. I can utilise creative tools in my supervision work such as sand tray, metaphor and imagery.
I have worked as a therapist in the following specialist services and also within private practice.
Mankind- offering therapy to male survivors of sexual abuse utilising trauma frameworks.
West London Action for Children -offering therapy to children, adults and families who have experienced adversity and trauma. I also worked in the school setting offering counselling.In this work I utilised play therapy frameworks and creative therapies.
I have also supervised training therapists in this role.
NSPCC - offering therapy to children who had experienced trauma and abuse utilising play therapy frameworks.
