“I like to challenge myself, I like to learn - so I like to try new things and try to keep growing” perhaps, a useful quote about a supervisory stance from David Schwimmer.
I am a trained and regisetered clinical supervisor. Supervision with me is a regular protected time for facilitated, in depth reflection on clinical practice. Its aims are to enable the supervisee to achieve, sustain and creatively develop a high quality of practice through the means of these focused structured conversations.
There are various ways that supervisees explore through supervision with me. Sometimes, complexities can be hard to untangle, so conversations together within a safe, supportive framework often helps people untangle issues and find pathways forward.I have been a registered clinical supervisor since 1991, initially providing professional supervision within the psychodynamic schools.
My supervisory practice has evolved over time training with IFT 2001 for two years in systemic supervision and I am now registered as a systemic supervisor with AFT and UKCP. I offer professional supervision to a wide range of supervisees including; UKCP, BACP- advanced practitioners and those new to the field.
My current supervision philosophy combines; systemic, analytical, person-centered, psychodynamic, narrative, solution-focused, cognitive behavioral, attachment and mindfulness theories. To name the various schools, however, I also draw upon influences from many other sources; including; research, literature, philosophy, the arts and life in general, and perhaps more significantly the conversations I have had with individuals, couples and families that I have worked with over the years.
