Supervision details

During my professional journey, I have been fortunate enough to have been supervised by a number of excellent supervisors who have positively influenced my practice.  In my own supervision, I aim to emulate their good practice and develop the systemic thinking and practice of other clinicians.  As a therapist and supervisor, I adhere to both the Association for family Therapist’s (AFT), and the UKCP, codes of Ethics.  I am passionate about good practice and evidence based practice (NICE guidelines) to safeguard others, and promote outcomes. I encourage others to comply with such guidelines.  This passion is driven by my experience of working alongside many vulnerable young people and their families. I am influenced by the writings of therapists such as John Burnham, Barry Mason and Harlene Andersen.  By taking a collaborative stance as a supervisor, I believe the supervisory relationship is one of great importance.  During the first meeting with a supervisee, I believe it is important to collaboratively write a supervisory agreement. Such an agreement is an opportunity for both parties to explore their hopes and expectations for the working relationship, as well as opening conversations about power and difference. As a supervisor I often use action techniques such as ‘internalised other interviews’, ‘sculpting’, and ‘externalising conversations’. I feel they help supervisees to think about their position as therapists as well as the position's of others.  They encourage supervisees to explore their inner-conversations and become self-reflexive, taking into account their own life experiences, which at times can be a helpful resource for therapists. I hope that you have found this position statement helpful.  If you require any further information regarding my practice please do not hesitate to contact me.
