Claire Elmes BA Hons Senior Mental Health Practitioner, registered BACP and PTUK
As a qualified supervisor I offer Creative Clinical Supervision to local therapists and trainees face to face or further afield via Skype/ zoom. I am also qualified as a practice educator and can support supervision of other professionals.
My real passion is attachment and trauma and love exploring different pathways. I often utilise creative toolkit elements such as drawing and sand to explore and unpick complex formulations.
I love discovering more about what is going on for clients we work with and how that is played out within our relationships. I utilise a variety of questioning to explore pathways with clients we are working with to help supervisees to consider different perspectives. I love using visualisations and creative ideas to tap into our unconscious mind so will often explore considering images, objects and drawing techniques. I find this incredibly powerful in bringing about new ideas and avenues to explore. I am a firm believer in the seven-eyed supervisor model considering not just clients but the bigger picture and how everything connects.
By considering solution focused practical steps to support clients, supervisees leave with clear action plans.
I also support with practical tips about setting up your business and getting your therapy business thriving :)
