Dr David Glasman, D.Clin. Psych, Dip. Psych, CPsychol
Are you looking for a supervisor who will work with you to extend your skills in a way that is both supportive and sufficiently robust to give you the confidence to try new things and become a better therapist? Do you also want a space where you feel safe to discuss how the work is informed by your own life story and its current shape? I can offer these things. I have experience of being on each side of the therapeutic equation - I am a qualified NHS supervisor, a therapist of 15 years experience, and at times I have been in therapy, which has provided an invaluable chance to reflect on how our interactions are best (or worst!) received. I am a qualified clinical psychologist, so have a breadth and depth of training that will allow us to think about a wide range of approaches to help clients, with special emphasis on clear formulations of what is going on and what might need to change.
I have considerable skills and experience of supervising. I worked in the NHS with both adults and children and families, so have great experience in managing risk and child protection issues, for example. I have supervised trainees studying on the Clinical Psychology doctorate course at Bath University. In addition, as a senior psychologist in an NHS team I have supervised psychologists and other NHS mental health professionals, who have brought a range of working practices and treatment models.
I have completed a training course in supervision for IAPT practitioners at Exeter University and received additional training in supervision at Surrey University.
As a doctorate trainee I completed a project on models of clinical supervision so have a good idea of a range of ways of supervising that are appropriate to your needs.
