Supervision details

My Approach to Clinical Supervision

Clinical supervision of counselling and psychotherapy work offers a nurturing and supportive space where you can step out of the intensity of your work in the therapy room, and begin to reflect on the unconscious undertones of your therapeutic relationships, and the ways in which they impact you. 

Supervision with me is about being able to think the unthinkable, see the unseeable and to learn to work skilfully with what is challenging. I believe that supervision should help you feel more skilled, confident and capable in doing the work that you love.

My approach, at its core is relational, psychodynamic and trauma-informed.

We would be paying attention to the unconscious processes within the therapy room, including how these processes might linger on with you, and how to begin to detach from them. We will look at how the historic, unresolved and unmet relationships of a client repeat with you and others in the clients’ lives, and how this knowledge can enable you to facilitate a deeper therapeutic process and a more empathic relationship with your clients.

About Me

I am a BACP and UKCP Registered Psychotherapist with experience of working in the charity sector as well as private practice. I carried out my Psychiatric Observational Placement at the Baldock Manor Hospital, Hertfordshire, learning about the treatment and management of care for patients in a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) setting. I am also a BUPA recognised psychotherapist.

I work with adults (18+) and couples. I originally trained as a transpersonal psychotherapist, with focus on Jung’s psychology, psychodynamic theory and trauma theory, but my work in the past few years has found its core in psychodynamic psychotherapy. 

My articles on Complex Trauma have been published by Welldoing.org and Transcend Media Service (TMS). I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP).

Supervision Training

I am currently enrolled on an advanced training in supervision, at the Institute for Group Analysis (IGA), London, with a psychodynamic orientation. I will be writing a qualifying paper at the end of my training, and by seeking supervision with me, you understand that I will be writing about our work by fully anonymising any details about you or your clients to respect everyone’s privacy. 

Fortnightly Group Supervision in Leighton Buzzard

At present, I only offer Group Supervision, in-person in Leighton Buzzard (LU7). I offer supervision to cover you for your clinical work with individual (1:1) clients.

Working in private practice can be a very solitary affair, and therefore, group supervision offers you the opportunity to:

·       Feel a sense of connectedness with other therapists, and feel part of a community;

·       Deepen your knowledge of clinical work by learning from the experience of others;

·       To experience how the unconscious object-relationships of a client can become constellated within a group.

Group Supervision Fees: £45. Currently, the following two groups are available.

Fortnightly Commitment to Supervision

By seeking Group Supervision with me, you would be committing to attending fortnightly supervision each month. Just like in therapy, it is the continuity and consistency that help us to go into depth, and therefore, this commitment is to ensure just that.

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
