I have a Diploma in Integrative Clinical Supervision and I have supervised trainee and qualified counsellors, psychotherapists, and psychologists. I have offered supervision one to one and in groups, in private practice and within charity settings. I have worked with practitioners from different modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Integrative, Transactional Analysis, Art Therapy, Psychodynamic, Relational, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Person Centred. I have supervised therapists working with adolescents, young people, and adults.
As a Supervisor I aim to facilitate a safe environment to explore clinical work and any connection to the personal world of the practitioner. By personal world, I am referring to the practitioner as an individual who is involved in “relating”, within their work; where person and professional co-exist. Although every clinician is the essential tool in their work, it is also important to be aware of how each relationship within clinical supervision, the therapy room and wider systems, influence and have an impact on the other. I encourage practitioners to develop and maintain confidence in their work as well as allowing the space to explore inevitable fallibility (of both supervisee and supervisor).
