Omar Sattaur MBACP (Accred.) Cognitive Analytic Therapist and EMDR Practitioner
My core training is in humanistic psychology and I endeavour to provide a non-threatening and safe space for supervisees to explore fully their relationships both with their clients but also with me as supervisor. As relational beings our lives will be influenced by personal and professional relationships - it is not possible, nor desirable in my view, to attempt to leave significant events 'outside the supervision space'. At the same time supervision is not counselling and agreeing boundaries is an important element of the contract.
My own work draws on three main disciplines and I bring these to supervision. My experience in working in higher education as well as in the private and voluntary sectors is broad enough to be valuable to the therapists I supervise. My aim is to provide supervisees with the resources they need whether these are to do with therapeutic skills, self-care and resilience or the adherence to professional and ethical standards.
