I am a psychotherapy supervisor, having completed a Diploma in Supervision at CSTD
I view supervision as a joint endeavour; a mechanism to attend to the client- therapist relationship, within the wider environment, and as a developmental process for the individuals involved and the profession. Although supervision is different from therapy, I believe it is important to consider how our own history impacts on the work and I welcome reflection on the personal as well as the professional.
I believe supervision is important to ensure that supervisees also feel nourished. They are often providing psychological support to people who have endured extreme hardship and trauma, and this can be extremely demanding, thus they require support too.
I use the seven eyed model of supervision (Hawkins & McMahon, 2020), which is relational and systemic. This means I work in a relational way, considering each of the people and also the co-creation between client and supervisee, supervisor and supervisee. This is all considered within the wider social and cultural context. I am also influenced by Gilbert & Evans (2020) who pose a psychotherapeutic approach to supervision.
Currently I am providing supervision at £55 per session.
