"I see supervision as the creation of a good relational space between us as supervisor and supervisee where creative, collaborative learning and personal growth can take place".
I provide a warm and collaborative environment to encourage open discussion about all aspects of your professional practice.
Successful supervision results in personal development and growth of you, my supervisee. Deeper knowledge. More confidence in your professional practice. The learning from sharing in supervision comes from what is possible in our work together. We both learn from the experience.
You can attend clinical supervision on a 1 to 1 basis, face to face or online, or join a supervision group. Both options are available for supervisees. Why not call me to talk about what might suit you best? Also see my article on considering group supervision here.
My curiosity as your supervisor will be in what it is you need from your supervision in order to continue to grow as a professional and ethical practitioner. What we need from supervision varies so much individually and is influenced by the where the supervisee is on their professional journey.
I believe its important to be comfortable enough and have a
strong enough relationship with your supervisor so that you can be yourself. Share what you need to share about your practice, in the interest of your clients.
From the outset it is important to me that we agree what our expectations are from each other. We will discuss and agree what you can expect from me in supervision and what can be expected from you.
I aim to support my supervisees in their therapeutic work by providing a warm, safe, confidential space. Within this environment for them to share their practice and be reflective, developing as a therapist whilst gaining insight into their professional practice and enabling personal growth. I believe that we continue to learn from our experiences and from each other and in working collaboratively within the relationship with my supervisees, provides the basis for personal growth and development. Take a look at my article here on the Wonders of Supervision.
I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist, BACP accredited counsellor, qualified supervisor, trainer and examiner. I am endorsed by UKATA as Provisional Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst (PTSTA). I work and supervise as an integrative psychotherapist using a relational approach. I build on my experience as a transactional analyst psychotherapist and humanistic counsellor. I teach and assess counselling and psychotherapy at several Higher Education colleges.
I believe that we all have the drive to continue to grow professionally over time. Together we can work alongside each other and you can continue to develop from your evolving professional practice.
If you like to have a conversation about coming to see me for supervision, you can call or email. See also the scheduled Supervision Open Day.
Supervision can be used in a number of different ways to support you in your professional development. Here are some examples.
There are both developing the business and professional type issues that are faced when setting up in private practice and it is possible to explore these in supervision. To consider how best to approach marketing your practice and creating a client base. There are also a range of professional issues that require consideration too such as safety and administration and assessment. Support can be provided in all of these areas.
