Supervision details

My psychotherapy training was psychodynamic - 6 years at the Society of Analytical Psychology - so my supervision comes from a psychodynamic vantage point.  The Society is both Jungian and developmental. Since then I have taken the Developing Supervisory Skills course at the British Psychotherapy Foundation.

My supervisory perspective is psychodynamic, developmental with a Jungian influence; I am happy to supervise those who who have been trained in a different modality but would be interested to hear more from a different perspective.

                                    What is supervision?

I see supervision as a journey together in the service of better helping our clients.  I look and listen for the dynamics of a situation, both those between therapist-client as well as between supervisor-supervisee. As in my work as a therapist, I regard countertransference as often being a valuable indicator as to what is going on. I also think about how the body's reactions can inform understanding.

                                 Modality of supervision?

Supervision is, like therapy again, about attunement and looking for patterns, and I believe that the work is richer when it is face to face and weekly. This is not always possible, but I believe that it is the gold standard. 

                                  First step? 

Taking on a supervisor is an important step. I would suggest that we would meet first of all for a free 50 minute session to discuss how it might be to work together, and then take it from there.
