I offer 1:1 clinical and professional supervision, and run 2 monthly supervision/continuing professional development groups.
Clinical Supervision for Psychotherapists, Counsellors, and Trainees
An essential part of supervision is offering a secure base from which individuals can develop both professionally and personally. One to one supervision provides a space for reflection and for a wider perspective on the work that a supervisee is engaged in. The process gives room for creativity, challenge, encouragement and constructive feedback. I aim to provide supervision at the level and appropriateness for each individual supervisee. Supervisees bring issues such as contracting, impasses, reducing the possibility of harm, ethical concerns, diagnosis, treatment planning, and transference phenomena. I am a Provisional Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst and provide accredited supervision to trainee CTA's and run supervision workshops.
Professional Supervision for Health and Social Care Practitioners
I offer professional supervision to managers and practitioners working in local organisations, for example in local authority and in palliative care services. I have built up this work base having spent a number of years previous to working as a psychotherapist, in organisational and management development. In addition, Transactional Analysis has a wealth of theory to offer in understanding the psychological energies within organisations, managing staff and maintaining an effective role within an organisation.
As an on-going theme, I am interested in supporting all supervisees to work to their own level of excellence, including developing resilience and self-care strategies.
Supervision/Continuing Professional Development Groups
I currently run 2 groups which allow individuals to come together for supervision, professional support and challenge. Groups start in September of each year and have a maximum of 4 supervisees. Currently the groups have participants with a mixture of backgrounds, training and qualifications. There are opportunities to compare and contrast different approaches and theory. The group works with transferential issues and varying supervision methods. Group input allows for keeping up to date with theory, research and support for on-going projects.
