Tom Taylor. BSc PGDIP PGCert EMDR MBACP (Accred) Individuals & Couples
I am BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with a supervision qualification accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). My core training is integrative, although my initial counselling skills training were person centred, which is a philosophy that permeates my clinical practice. As such, I am very comfortable with the approach and it's philosophical underpinnings, and have extensive experience of supervising person-centered trainees.
I currently work part-time as a clinical supervisor for an award winning, UK registered charity, supervising the clinical practice of counsellors and psychotherapists consisting of paid and voluntary, qualified and trainee practitioners. My previous two roles have involved my leading and clinically supervising specialist teams and services within the field of sexual trauma, consisting of counsellors, psychotherapists, IAPT high intensity therapists (HIT's) and counselling psychologists.
I believe that effective supervision incredibly important for all clinicians, to assist us in working safely and competently, whilst promoting reflective practice and self-care. Supervision is also a space and process that I enjoy very much, both as a supervisor and supervisee, in addition to finding it incredibly useful for continued professional and personal development.
I am also experienced in supervising non-therapy trained professionals such as project workers, social workers and teaching staff.
I offer face to face, telephone and online supervision, for both trainees and qualified practitioners.
I also offer a free initial 30 minute telephone consultation to discuss your needs, get a feel for each other, and for you to decide whether or not you would like to work together.
My supervision fees are: £65 per hour
