Supervision details

PLEASE NOTE: Currently, I am only offering online Clinical Supervision.  I hold a Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals & Groups; Meeting supervision training standards set out by the BACP.My Ethos: I believe that a positive experience of clinical supervision includes developing an open and honest relationship between supervisor and supervisee. One that allows for a supportive, consultive and restorative experience for all involved that enhances the growth and development of all those within that relationship.  Being trained from integrative viewpoint, I am able to work with supervisees of differing modalities, and varying experience of client work; including open-ended or time-limited. There is a great focus on working relationally in my work and the impact that our supervisory relationship has on client work. Attachment theory provides a core foundation to my supervisory work, to develop the therapist’s ability to work from a relational and attachment standpoint. This helps therapists to develop a real understanding of the impact of early relational and attachment experiences; relating to key developmental frameworks. And the impact this has on the therapeutic relationship. Experience: My experience has been gained from supervising within my private practice; as well as supervising within an agency setting for groups of trainee therapists, working with Low Cost and NHS clients. When working with trainees I like to focus on enhancing their skills of putting taught theory into practice as well as developing their ability as reflexive practitioners. Part of my practice as a supervisor, also incorporates allowing newly qualified therapists to become more in tune with their own emotional responses to their clients and how this presents within the body; exploring physical symptoms as well as visualisations.  My Methods: My methods also draw on creative elements. Using drawing, symbols and crafts skills to allow for a more creative expression through the session. With supervisees I have developed relationships with, I also utilise EFT skills to allow for unconscious feelings to present in relation to clients. Within my private practice I also see supervisees on a one to one basis. Either as part of their training and qualification stages, or post qualification as part of their monthly requirement. Fees:  The fee for individual supervision: £50 for a 50 minute appointment. The fee for group supervision: £30 per person. For 1.5 hours. Maximum of 4 per group.  I also offer a limited number of clients seeking a reduced fee. This is available for students of counselling. Please contact me if you would like to discuss these further.
