Supervision is an essential aspect of ethical and effective therapy. It is an inter-personal and inter-subjective system with multiple interlocking relationships. Therefore my role as supervisor is to manage, support, develop and evaluate in order to facilitate and encourage the development of the supervisee's work and relationship with their clients.
My style and approach
I am a Humanistic Person Centred Psychotherapist and offer relational supervision using an integrative approach. This style of supervision addresses the therapy system, the supervision system and the context in which supervision occurs. I encourage my supervisees to reflect on their work with their clients whilst receiving emotional support, advice and containment from me. The reflection process includes your thoughts, behaviour and approach with your client.
The supervision environment
In order to achieve good supervisory relationships with supervisees I aim to create a safe, supportive and holding relationship within an effective learning environment using (Buber’s 1996) I – Thou relational attitude My qualities include empathy, acceptance, flexibility, openness with confrontation, sense of humour, appropriate self-disclosure at times and the ability to give clear and direct feedback.
I try to encourage professional development without shaming, reducing or taking away your autonomous thinking, interventions or skills whilst stimulating your need to be reflective and to also develop the necessary links between theory and practice.
I offer both individual and group supervision.
