Clinical SupervisionI have twelve years' experience of providing Clinical Supervision in the NHS and in independent practice to Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Doctoral level Trainees and a range of other health professionals. I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Consultant/Supervisor and a BABCP Accredited Supervisor. I am on the British Psychological Society Register of Applied Psychological Practice Supervisors and I have a Post-Graduate Certificate in the Supervision of Applied Psychological Practice from the University of Oxford. I offer individual and group supervision to clinicians wanting to develop their use of EMDR, CBT or Integrative Psychotherapy. I also offer supervision for therapists working towards EMDR Europe accreditation. I supervise professionals working in the NHS, in independent practice and in other organisational contexts. Please contact me if you would like to discuss the options for individual or group supervision.
The aim of supervision is to ensure that the therapy which is offered to clients is as effective and efficient as it can be and is safe and ethical. The process of achieving this is the development of the theoretical understanding and clinical skills of the supervisee in the context of a supportive and collaborative professional relationship. I value supervisees being well prepared for supervision with a specific supervision question or issue. I think that it is very helpful for us to play recordings of our clinical work in supervision as often as possible in order to improve our insight and skills. I consider that deliberate skills practice outside of sessions e.g. by listening to recordings and practicising specific skills in superivision is a crucial method for therapist development. I also think it is important to bring outcome measures relating to our clients' progress to supervision so that we have a clear indication of whether or not therapy is working and we can intervene where necessary. I believe that supervision should be a safe space in which, as clinicians, we can discuss our concerns and mistakes and learn from them.
My supervision fees are £90/hour.
