I offer clinical supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists. I also offer support to mental health workers in the helping profession whose jobs involve caring for clients who are experiencing emotional distress or facing difficult life circumstances.
Supervision is a space where the therapist, with the help of the supervisor, will endeavour to attend to the therapist’s clinical work allowing the latter to reflect, make sense and find different alternatives in their interactions with clients.
Supervision is a super-vision (Gaie Houston, Supervision and Counselling, 1995) a space that allows the therapist to have a better “view” of what they are doing. The hope is that, by the end of each session, supervisees will have enlarged the range of possible interventions available to them and will have diffused the emotions that may have arisen by the work with the client.
I provide relational and integrative supervision and my main approaches are the psychodynamic, gestalt and the person-centred perspectives. I also have a breadth of knowledge of other therapeutic perspectives and my aim is to find a common language with supervisees so we can work together even if our therapeutic approaches are not exactly the same.
I have experience working with individuals and groups and I have worked as a clinical supervisor within the third sector as well as the NHS. I am particularly interested in helping students to develop their skills so they can achieve different levels of development until they find themselves ready to find jobs or to start their own private practices.
