Supervision details

I have approximately 10 years experience working as a Supervisor within an NHS IAPT service and also deliver supervision in private practice and for a Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (High Intensity) Masters in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course. I have supervised over 50 clinicians, including various teams of both qualified and trainee Cognitive Behavioural Therapists, as well as Psychological Well-being Practitioners and Trainee Social Workers. I have also case managed clinicians, which has involved overseeing their caseload and providing support in helping them to achieve targets and improve performance (such as client recovery rates). I have always aimed to use a warm and positive approach, even in the face of challenges; however, I am not afraid to give clear and honest feedback and guidance. I enjoy the supervisory element to my practice and have received a lot of very positive feedback from colleagues and management. This has also been evident within more formal anonymous feedback forms. Therapists and Practitioners have reported that they feel comfortable meeting with me and find me very approachable, but also congruent and able to provide constructive feedback to enhance their learning.  I have attended the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Supervisor training, as well as additional training, to further develop my skills. I draw from the seven eyed model of supervision to guide my practice. I also follow the Roth and Pilling Competencies Framework for CBT in depression and anxiety disorders, when supervising in a CBT capacity. This framework outlines the activities necessary to carry out CBT effectively and in line with best practice. I am very flexible and can draw from my range of skills and experience in my supervision practice, so that I am able to meet the needs of my Supervisees and their individual circumstances (taking into account their personality and background also). My integrative training enables me to adapt my approach as required.  In addition, I mark Post-Graduate work for a university, so am able to provide an element of academic support where required. I have a lot of experience marking CTS-R's (a tool for assessing CBT Therapy) and have suported clinicians in passing these. My fees are £70 per hour session for students and £75 per hour session for qualified clinicians.
