Supervision details

Hello, thanks for visiting my Supervisor Profile. My name is Alexandra and I am a fully qualified and accredited Integrative and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and I practice from an integrative and cognitive behavioural approach.  

I have been involved in the field of eating disorders for over 21 years. I have occupied a range of roles including: director of a leading eating disorder charity in Scotland; chair of trustees; committee member with another eating disorder charity; volunteer; support group facilitator; psychology researcher in eating disorders; psychotherapist in eating disorders; lecturer and trainer in eating disorders; clinical director of an eating disorder clinic; and chair of an eating disorders professional network (amongst others). So, if you are looking for a clinical supervisor who works in the field of eating disorders and disordered eating, I am happy to assist. I supervise professionals who are not involved in the field of eating disorders too, so if you are looking for a generalist supervisor, I can also provide appointments to you.

I have supervisees across the UK and can provide online appointments and in-person appointments (Glasgow).

I supervise psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists from a range of therapeutic modalities including cognitive and behavioural; person-centred; integrative and others. I also offer clinical supervision to other non-therapist professionals including dietitians; support/mental health workers; nurses; teachers; and business professionals.

I am also an accredited trainer and can supervisor other trainers and lecturers in psychotherapy and counselling. I also offer supervision to other supervisors. 

I supervise trainee therapists; newly qualified therapists; experienced therapists and accredited therapists in addition to those above.  

I hold accredited membership with COSCA, membership with BABCP and graduate membership with the British Psychological Society. I am also Chair of EDTNG (Eating Disorder Therapist Networking Group) and Consultant at EDMenSt. I am Clinical Director at two private psychotherapy practices and manage a team of 14 therapists in Scotland and England. 

I am an encouraging and supportive clinical supervisor and work hard to help my supervisees be the best therapists, counsellors and professionals they can. I am warm and friendly and create a safe and confidential space in which to discuss clients, seek support and information, problem-solve conflicts and dilemmas and explore any personal concerns or challenges you may be facing as a clinician or professional. I am encouraging and have a sense of humour, which I think is really important given the work we all do. 

My current supervisees have all benefited from my encouraging approach and found supervision to be valuable in many ways. It's important to have a supportive space as a therapist/professional, isn't it? I feel that I provide this. 

Location
I can practice from my office in Glasgow city centre or online (Zoom). My office is accessible from a wide range of areas outside of Glasgow too.  Buchanan Bus Station, various train and subway stations, the M8 motorway and many bus stops are within a few minutes walk from my office. There are various car parks nearby too.  

I can provide clinical supervision to individuals and other organisations requiring supervision for their for client work. 

Appointment Fees

* Students: £45/session (I will also offer you this rate for one year after you qualify too, after which the rate will return to £60)
* Qualified Therapists: £60/session

Appointment Frequency

I offer the first introductory supervision appointment for £30 so you can determine if I am a good fit for you. 

All supervision appointments are 50 minutes. 1 and a half and double sessions are also possible. Appointments can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly, 6-weeklu or as and when needed.

I also provide Therapist Peer Support and Supervision Groups too (5-6 members). These are for 1.5-2 hours (depending in the number of therapists participating) and cost £35 per person, per group. If you are a corporate organisation in need of supervision groups, please contact me for fees.

If you are interested in booking some clinical supervision or would like some more information, no problem at all. Please get in touch and I will get back to you soon. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you in the future.

Best wishes,

Alexandra
