Dr Nicole Stokoe, DClinPsy, PhD, HCPC, BABCP: Therapy and Supervision
Lovely to meet you
I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist, registered with HCPC, accredited by the BABCP and fully trained and practicing in the DBT model. I currently practice in Adult Mental Health services in the NHS as well as run my own private practice called Avenue Therapies (www.avenuetherapies.com).
I am pleased to be able to offer supervision as an open, flexible and compassion focused practitioner on a range of different psychological models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT). I offer a solution focused and compassionate stance in my work and would hope to offer a helpful alternative perspective to your clinical work as well as offering guidance and support in relation to working in private or NHS practice.
I offer regular structured supervision where we would agree agenda together and think about how best to use our supervision time together.
I would be happy to offer some time to talk on the phone or to meet in person as an initial 'hello' and to see if our styles and approach to supervision would be a good fit. I am quite flexible in terms of when I could offer supervision outside of normal Monday to Friday 9-5 working hours. I am based in Ealing in London.
I have worked in psychological services in the NHS since 2001 supporting adolescents and adults to understand, manage and grow in their mental health and wellbeing. I have experience working with a broad range of personal issues and difficulties, relationship and relational problems, psychological (e.g. anxiety, stress, depression, OCD, psychosis, social anxiety, phobias) emotional (e.g. emotion dysregulation and coping with intense emotions) and physical ill health (for example living with chronic enduring physical health difficulties such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, chronic pain and Multiple Sclerosis) and existential challenges (e.g. changes in life roles, new life chapters, thinking about the future, older age and the meaning of life).
I have practiced as a supervisor for practitioners working privately, in the NHS and for trainees working towards BABCP accreditation or on the Clinical Psychology doctorate.
