Cecilie Sasu - Counsellor, EMDR Therapist & Clinical Supervisor
I offer supervision in my private practice to counsellors who work in private practice themselves, or in agencies or schools. In addition, I offer group supervision as a Lead Counsellor in a secondary school.
My model of supervision is influenced by the “Seven-eyed Model” (sometimes called the process model or the double matrix model). I believe it is a useful way of looking at the supervision process and I have adapted my way of working from this. The reason I like this model is because it provides a useful ‘map’ to know where we are, at any time, within the supervisory relationship. Further, I have found this model particularly useful because it focuses on relational aspects between client, therapist, and supervisor whilst also integrating systemic ideas by focusing on the interplay between each relationship and their context within the wider system.
I also integrate into my model Protor’s ideas of supervision, which is task-based around being restorative (supportive), normative (or managerial) and formative (or educative).
I believe that tasks (what needs to happen), emotions and ideas must all be given space to be explored in supervision. I do not see myself as the expert, but rather I try to be a collaborator with my supervisee. My role as the supervisor is to provide a space in which the supervisee can be open to his or her experience so that it is possible to fully engage with the client.
I respect that there are many ways of working therapeutically with clients, and I am open to sharing, exploring and learning alongside you.
I have completed a Diploma in Clinical Supervision from Pam Nell Associates, and I supervise counsellors in private practice and as a Lead Counsellor in a secondary school on an individual or group basis.
