I offer Integrative Supervision to professional-trained psychotherapists and coaches. Please visit my website for a list of the range of issues supported. The fee per 50 minute supervision session is £75.
I have supervised therapists at Regents University during 22 years, as well supervising experienced therapists with 7-25yrs post qualification experience in various settings as well as private clinical practice. I offer supervision to qualified therapists and coaches who are looking for a highly experienced level of support.
My evidence based approach includes: Neuroscience, Trauma-PTSD/Trauma Informed Approaches, Mindfulness-Phenomenology, Cognitive Behavioural Theory, Somatic Body Theory, Internal Family Systems, Exposure Response Therapy, Developmental Psychology (within the therapeutic relationship), Psychoeducation, Psychodynamic-Psychoanalytic Theories, Humanistic Relational Theories (particularly Gestalt), Life-Executive-Transformational Coaching, Positive Psychology, Motivational and Solution Focused approaches, Dynamic Mindset Implementation and managing Short and Long-term therapy.
How I work:
I view supervision as an explorative and collaborative process and therefore work collaboratively and creatively with you according to your needs. Sometimes I offer creative solutions, at times thinking 'out of the box', in addition to solid theoretical application and exploration. The aim is to deepen your client work and take your clients to the next level, whilst at the same time respecting and safe-guarding their privacy and confidentiality.
The supervision process is dynamic and different for everyone, sometimes we might explore working in new way, perhaps taking a risk within the therapeutic process; or it might be fine tuning your particular style of working, building on your strengths, or identifying any edges-potential blind spots. At times, people simply require collegial support, professional to professional, preferring creative discourse over developmental need - an experienced eye.
I have had many supervisors over my 25 year career, so fully respect how important it is to find the right match. I struggled to find someone who knew more than me or at least could offer new and useful perspectives. Who knew when to supervise and when to support, when to share, when and how to challenge, when to boost confidence etc. We are reaching a new era, where the highly experienced are retiring or retired and newly qualified supervisors emerging. Its important to feel supported, engaged, theoretically aligned, and be enjoying a space in which to grow and learn, rest and recuperate, receive validation or healthy challenge.
