Dear Supervisees

1) I have got a Phd in philosophy, and it has shaped how I integrate the Existential/CBT/Philosophical idea of ‘worldview’/‘schema’/‘internal working model’ and the Object Relations Theory (ORT) in psychodynamic. Also, I can easily work exclusively in Phenomemological-Existential approach.

Note that the tenet of the ORT that there are many selves in 'me' originates from the philosopher Plato via Freud. Also, there are striking similarities between CBT and philosophy, in terms of thought, feeling, and action/behaviour: these are trinitarian.

2) In understanding the client the application of hermeneutic circle (i.e., a dialogical relation between the part and the whole in texts: we have to refer to the whole to understand the parts and the parts to understand the whole [e.g. in understanding sentences and the words within them]) is crucial. This is to say that I always endeavour to understand a client in a wider context of that client in terms of, e.g., relationship, environment, sexuality, etc.

3) While working with clients (even for assessment), I often explain the rationale for my interventions. This helps clients to understand how I work, to become more reflective, and to avoid the situation of getting stuck.

4) I have regularly been treating a wide range of mental health issues with a good number of client contact hours (both short-term & long-term) every week.
