Supervision for trainees and qualified therapists - face to face in Preston, Lancashire or online
I offer supervision to trainees and qualified therapists. Having significant experience of working in private practice and organisations as a clinical lead, supervisor and therapist. I provide supervision with experience and theoretical knowledge of working with adults, young people and families. I have specialised in working with trauma related to rape, sexual abuse and domestic abuse as well as working with clients presenting with anxiety, depression, grief and day to day life struggles.
My work experiences outside of private practice ensure a unique perspective on working with people within organisations and the dynamics of working within and across organisations. This is particularly helpful for supervisees who are navigating an organisational placement/work environment.
My psychotherapy and counselling approach is integrative with a humanistic foundation derived from my primary training in transactional analysis. My supervision style reflects this. The model I use in supervision is the Seven Eyed Process Model (Hawkins and Shohet 1993).
As an integrative humanistic supervisor, the main focus of our supervision is the development of our supervisory relationship and working collaboratively to ensure the protection and the best interests of your clients and that your needs and development as a practitioner and supervisee are being met.
Benefits of supervision
Improved clinical skills: Clinical supervision provides therapists with the opportunity to receive feedback on their clinical practice, which can help them develop their clinical skills and improve their treatment outcomes. Enhanced therapeutic effectiveness: By reviewing their cases with a supervisor, therapists can gain a deeper understanding of their clients, develop better treatment plans, and improve their therapeutic outcomes. Increased self-awareness: Clinical supervision can help therapists reflect on their own values, beliefs, and biases and increase their self-awareness. Support and guidance: Supervisors can provide therapists with support and guidance when they face difficult cases or ethical dilemmas. Opportunity for growth and development: Clinical supervision provides therapists with the opportunity to learn new techniques, stay up-to-date with the latest research, and continue their professional development. Protection against burnout: By providing a supportive and non-judgmental environment, clinical supervision can help prevent burnout and promote job satisfaction among therapists. Compliance with ethical and legal standards: Clinical supervision helps ensure that therapists are meeting ethical and legal standards in their practice, which is important for protecting clients and avoiding liability. Overall, clinical supervision is a valuable tool for enhancing the skills and effectiveness of therapists, promoting professional growth and development, and providing support and guidance throughout their careers.
