“Supervision provides the container that holds the helping relationship within the therapeutic triad” Hawkins and Shohet, 1989
I am a Supervisor and I hope to provide safety, structure and to manage any anxiety. I work in an integrative way from my training of Person Centred and Psycho-dynamic theory and with an understanding of Mindful CBT. I have a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Supervision. I work independently and for the One to One Project with groups. I work face to face or on line.
My Initial training was Person Centred with emphasis on Carl Rogers and after two years we then trained in Psychodynamic theory with emphasis on Freud and Jacobs (1998). After studying Clarkson I now use the five-relational Clarkson framework which provides an integrative framework (Clarkson 2003). This helps my understanding of psychodynamic transference and counter transference concepts and the humanistic approach of person centred theory.
As a Supervisor I work with The 7 Eyed Model Inskip and Proctor 2001 being aware as a Supervisor when working with you of -
- The Client
- Counsellor- Client relationship
- The Counsellor
- Supervisor- Supervisee relationship
- The Supervisor
- The Systems
I work as a member of the BACP with their ethical framework which I believe is important when you may bring ethical dilemmas. The “BACP believes that supervision can positively contribute to the maintenance and development of ethical professional practice”.
Supervisee say to me from the Supervision they feel a release and have a clearer mind , also the feeling of being energised to go back in with clients. The relationship is Key for us working together.
I offer supervision to individuals or groups, to qualified or trainee counsellors and psychotherapists.
