Helen Maharaj BABCP Accredited CBT Therapist / EMDR Therapist
Clinicians practicing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy are required to have regular supervision with an appropriately qualified and experienced supervisor.
I have supervised qualified and trainee therapists and practitioners who deliver Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I have received supervision training from the experts at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience; Royal Holloway; University College London; and Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre.
I have also provided training for supervisors from diverse professional backgrounds including practitioners, CBT therapists, psychologists and service leads, while working at the University of Surrey on the Advanced Practice in Psychological Wellbeing Programme.
As a BABCP Accredited Therapist I provide CBT based supervision for professionals who fall into a number of different groups including but not limited to the following:
- Trainee CBT Therapists who require supervision to reach the number of hours needed to apply for BABCP Accreditation. This can include the marking of session recordings using the CTS-R or ACCS and marking of case studies for BABCP accreditation (charged separately)
- Qualified CBT Therapists in private practice
- Counsellors and psychotherapists who would like specialist CBT supervision to develop and refine their knowledge and skills.
- Mental health professionals including nurses, social workers and occupational therapists who would like to apply CBT in their day to day practice.
I can provide clinical supervision and case management supervision to teams and to individuals.
Flexible arrangements can be made including weekly, fortnightly, and monthly supervision. Supervision is provided over the telephone and via Skype or FaceTime.
As a supervisor I use my experience to adapt to your needs and level of skill. I encourage reflection and action, while using a full range of learning approaches, ensuring you can reach your supervision goals and provide the best quality therapy to your patients.
I welcome diversity including people of all genders, sexualities, religions, ethnicities, body sizes, abilities and political values. During my time teaching trainee practitioners I co-ordinated a module on anti-discriminatory practice. I am continually updating my knowledge in this area, including recent training on the impact of microaggressions particularly as experienced by BAME people.
