Supervision details

Creative supervision as the name suggests, incorporates creative media into supervision models. It can include creative media such as sandplay; writing; art; music; clay & role-play.  I offer a safe space to help you reflect on your work with clients.  I aim to develop a collaborative working relationship with you, so you feel safe enough to openly explore any thoughts, feelings and experiences about your work, without judgement.  In supervision, we explore your client work together to help us understand your clients better and improve your work with them. This includes exploring issues arising from sessions, celebrating success, working through ethical dilemmas, whilst thinking about ways to facilitate positive changes in your clients. My aim as a supervisor is to help you to gain in ethical competence, confidence, compassion and creativity to give your best possible service to clients, and to reflect on all aspects of your clinical work.  My supervision approach is relational, humanistic, integrative and creative.  I aim to provide a relationship that is collegial, supportive and respectful.  My approach to supervision enables flexibility in my thinking, helping me to adapt to individual learning styles and different therapeutic orientations. My key values as a supervisor are collaboration, support, growth, diversity, creativity and humour and I work within the BACP ethical framework. If you are a practicing therapist, mental health professional or other professional who works with people involving emotionally challenging relational dynamics such as Social Workers or Teachers and wish to discuss your supervision with me, please contact me for further details or to discuss your individual needs. I can offer supervision across the UK online as well as in person on the Isle of Wight. Supervision Fees: £55 per person (60 minutes) I can offer individual and group supervision. Please enquire for group supervision fees.
