I am currently providing CBT supervision to both trainee and qualified CBT Therapists. I work with Teesside University as one of their course supervisors, supervising trainees in groups of 3. I also provide CBT supervision working with a local NHS provider, again working with both trainees within their service and qualified staff. I can provide supervision as part of a group or on a 1-1 basis and also provide supervision for therapists within private practice.
My experience of supervising trainee CBT therapists means that I am very familiar with the CTS-R and on supporting individuals who are right at the start of their journeys as a therapist. I have a particular interest in the impact of trauma, OCD and third wave CBT approaches including Compassion Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Prior to working as a private practitioner, I spent many years working within IAPT services (both as a PWP and a CBT Therapist) and working for a persistent physical symptoms service which supported individuals to live valued lives, despite ongoing symptoms such as chronic pain and fatigue.
I have attended IAPT training on providing supervision for both PWP's and HI practitioners and have more recently been trained in the Newcastle Cake Stand model of supervision, which I find a really helpful model for exploring the various dimensions of supervision and tailoring sessions to each supervisees needs.
Supervision sessions are charged at £70 per session.
Should you wish to discuss things further and see if we are a good match, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Feedback from trainee and qualified supervisee's:
“I could not have asked for a better supervisor. Caroline was incredibly supportive and understanding throughout my CBT training, providing a strong scaffolding throughout the course. She offered an ideal balance of providing a wealth of knowledge of interventions, skills, and protocols, whilst still strongly encouraging my own personal growth and learning. Caroline has seamlessly adapted supervision from me being a trainee to a qualified CBT therapist. I am hugely thankful.“
“ I would highly recommend Caroline as a supervisor. I find her way of allowing reflection and discussion on my practice has given me the confidence to challenge and practice my skills. Caroline has a way of understanding what your needs are, and helps you to develop core CBT competencies as well as self-reflection. As a trainee CBT therapist, I have found this priceless”.
"Caroline provides effective and supportive supervision which promotes reflection, learning and development. She brings to supervision knowledge gained through therapy practice based on disorder specific treatment theory and protocols. Caroline delivers supervision with kindness, empathy and positive regard which encourages a collaborative approach to all sessions."
"Caroline is a warm, genuine supervisor and has helped me to build my confidence and develop my skills as a trainee CBT therapist. I enjoy our supervision sessions and feel able to share my work in a non-judgmental and very nurturing environment. I would highly recommend Caroline as a supervisor."
