Whether you are a therapist or counsellor having supervision is not only a requirement but a valuable and precious gift to yourself and your clients.
A safe, supportive space
I aim to create a safe, supportive space free from judgement and where you can explore the issues that your clients bring to you and that are coming up for you whilst working with them.
Sometimes you may not know what is coming up for you with a client and will need to think out loud in order to connect with them. I offer you a contained space to do this.
At other times you may need more direct guidance with a client or may have counter transferential issues that you need to work through. We will do that together at your pace, always focusing on your aims for the work.
Different folks, different strokes
It does not matter what modality you are working with, whether you are a person centred therapist, gestalt, or any other modality. We will work collaboratively to support both you and your clients so you can enjoy your work as a therapist and continue to add real value to the lives of the clients you are working with.
The sum is greater than the parts
My work with both clients and therapists draws on my knowledge and training in Transactional Analysis, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Functional Fluency and Imago Relationship Therapy. I also have a Certificate in Supervision from the Manchester Institute of Psychotherapy.
These modalities mould together beautifully in so many ways and along with your own knowledge and working style, will allow us to explore the issues your clients bring to you and you bring yourself from lots of different angles. This gives you freedom and a potential for new insight in your work.
I am a Provisional Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst (PTSTA) and so am qualified to work with Certified Transactional Analysts and trainees.
Couples work very welcome
I’ve been working with couples as part of my therapy practice for many years and have regular and extensive training in the field. My learning does not stop and I would hope to share both the theory and practice with you as we work together.
If you are working with couples on a regular basis or if this is one area of practice that you are looking to build confidence in and build into your work then I’d love to help you with that.
Working with couples brings up all sorts of challenges you simply don’t get with individual work. Together we can create space so you can ask questions, explore your thoughts and fears and develop as a professional.
