Supervision details

I offer a professional clinical supervision service to other HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologists, as well as to appropriately qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists. On a case by case basis I am also willing to consider supervision of unqualified colleagues, working in Assistant Psychologist roles, as long as the governance structures in place around them are otherwise robust.

My approach to supervision is as follows:

  • The primary focus of supervision is the welfare of service users through supporting the ongoing personal and professional development of a supervisee.
  • Supervision will focus on the development of knowledge and skills in line with professional registration, and support the quality of a supervisee’s work.
  • The supportive function will be in relation to development of clinical, professional and leadership skills as well as appropriate self-care and career development.
  • Associated issues will also be discussed when it is relevant to do so, for example case management, ethical dilemmas, limits of competence, safeguarding etc.
  • Personal issues can be brought to supervision in so far as discussing their impact on professional practice.
  • Exploration of a supervisee’s thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, and values may be undertaken to understand the impact of these on therapeutic work and wider professional practice.
  • Discussion and working through relationship and process aspects of supervision may also be considered.

My main therapeutic modalities are psychodynamic and attachment based therapies, and I draw on Hawkins and Shohet's Seven-Eyed model for supervision.

If you are looking for a new clinical supervisor, please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss whether I might be a good fit for you!

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
