Dr. Chris James - Consultant Clinical Psychologist, DClinPsych CPsychol
I am passionate about the importance of good quality supervision and since qualifying have developed a specialism in clinical supervision, gaining a postgraduate qualification in CBT Supervision from King's College London and have attended numerous supervision training programmes and workshops.
I am very proud to be one of only a few BABCP Accredited Supervisors in Wales.
I have much experience of supervising a range of professionals including medics, psychologists, CBT therapists, trainee therapists, nurses and OTs.
I can provide supervision to practitioners working with adults and adolescents working across a range of settings (e.g. Primary and Secondary Mental Health services, private practice) and can also provide supervision of other practitioners' supervisory practice.
Group supervision and consultation sessions are also available - contact me to discuss.
I will adapt my supervisory style to the needs of the supervisee, e.g. utilising a more CBT-focused approach or providing a more integrative style of supervision that draws from other therapeutic models including psychodynamic, compassion-focused and humanist approaches. This is discussed when setting up supervision at the start.
I also have experience in providing CBT supervision training and currently provide training to professionals working in the NHS.
I place much value in developing a good quality supervisory relationship and regularly use supervisory feedback measures to help ensure the supervision is focused and meeting the needs of my supervises. I regularly receive supervision for my own clinical and supervisory practice.
