It is my belief that supervision is both a necessity and a gift. It is to provide the kind of support that assists the maintenance of good practice whilst also continuing to broaden and deepen the work. The exchange of ideas through a thoughtful reflective process is an important part of clinical practice.
I work psychodynamically looking at the unconscious processes of transference and countertransference issuing from the to and fro in the therapeutic relationship. Essentially we will look at the clinical material, what is happening in the consulting room and together attempt to gain understanding of the meaning that is carried within the interaction, so that the work can develop.
As mentioned under 'experience' I have supervised many counsellors and therapists, both those in training and those who are qualified. I also bring to my work as a supervisor the extensive experience and knowledge imparted to me by those senior practitioners who have supervised my clinical work over many years.
My Jungian analytical training enables me to observe through a devopmental as well as an archetypal lens incorporating psychoanalytic ideas alongside myth and symbol. What I offer is supervision that carries a spirit of inquiry into the mysteries of psyche; to bring together that which is complex alongside that which is simple and play with the possibilities.
I offer group and individual supervision to qualified/trainee counsellors and therapists who wish to work psychodynamically and/or psychoanalytically. I have 14 years experience working as a supervisor of counsellors who have taken a counselling training with organisations including Wessex Counselling Service, Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling, the University of the West of England, Wiltshire College and others. I also have experience in working as a training supervisor for Wessex Counselling Service and supervisor to the support staff at Penny Brohn Cancer Care.
My original training as a counsellor was with Wessex Counselling Service an affiliate of Westminster Pastoral Foundation (London) and currently accredited by BPC. I am also qualified as a Jungian Analytical Psychotherapist registered as an Associate Professional Member of West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy and UKCP.
My fee for individual supervision per 50 minute session is £45
Group supervision is by negotiation
