Sylvia Young Grad Dip MA (UKCP Reg) Psychotherapist, Counsellor & Supervisor
Since 2014 I have supervised counsellors and psychotherapists working in mental health settings, charitable organisations and in private practice - both individually and in groups. This has included a wide ranging scope of experience from trainees to very experienced professionals.
My collaborative, relational approach seeks to create a trusted, supportive space in which to bring any concerns that potentially affect the work with clients and the wellbeing of the professional.
I endeavour to support the supervisee to be as wholly available as possible to the person they offer support to and the issues s(he) brings, seeing integration here as a quality and process equally important for the therapist as well as for the client. Where appropriate and requested I can utilise creative ways for the exploration of those processes.
My integrative stance also facilitates understanding of various approaches of therapy and keeps me curious and interested about how other professionals facilitate the healing journey while mindfully holding the ethical foundations of our work.
