I provide Clinical Supervision for counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists. 

My aim for supervision is to create a secure base from which you can explore your therapeutic work, in order to gain a greater understanding of your client, their material and the therapeutic relationship. 
 
I view supervision as Restorative (Hawkins and Shohet model, 1989), in that it helps the supervisee seek restoration or balance in order to see the bigger picture for their client and to notice any blind spots, vulnerabilities or collusive behaviour.  This can include monitoring any risk of burnout or where one’s personal life may be having an adverse effect on your professional work. Supervision is also an important space to recognise areas that have been helpful in the session and celebrate things the counsellor has done well.
 
There are also normative and formative elements to supervision, in that we can both learn from each other and our clients as well as developing new skills and attributes as practitioners. We can use the supervision as a chance to reflect on the integration of theory and practice.  Furthermore, there is a duty to ensure compliance with our professional body’s ethical codes, Data protection and other legal requirements. I start from the assumption that you work ethically and to the best of your ability.  I trust you to prepare for supervision and discuss client work with honesty and clarity.
 
I am an integrative practitioner and enjoy learning about different approaches and how they can be incorporated into practice.
