I am a psychoanalytically trained supervisor and dramatherapist. As a supervisor I draw on my training at the Institute of Group Analysis, which is psychoanalytical and talk-based, and enhance it with creative-arts based exploration. The degree to which I use one or the other mode depends very much on the supervisee and the clients we are thinking about together. Structured, shared reflection supports ethical, precise practice and protects the safety of you and your clients. It helps prevent burnout and makes you less susceptible to secondary trauma. I myself engage in regular supervision, and believe it is an essential element of good therapeutic practice throughout ones career. I offer both individual and group supervision. A testimonial from a current supervisee: "Wonderful supervision sessions! I enjoy the combination of talking and working creatively; which has helped me both in gaining understanding and recognising feelings around my work. Marianna's insightful, containing and experienced approach has made me feel supported and empowered to find and refine my own personal style of therapeutic practice."
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
