About me and my therapy practice
I have 27yrs experience in mental health. I have work in numerous areas of this field including, domestic violence, prison work, social services, agency work, family support, men's health, addictions and relationship work. I offer supervision in the context of an integrative approach with the application of the Seven Eyed Model and the Cyclical Model. I offer Therapeutic Counselling Supervision to both Qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists as Consultative Supervision to Supervisors. I have been accredited by the BACP since 2014 and I have a total of 18yrs practice as a Psychotherapist
As mention above I within an Integrative approach. the provision of my work is within the required minimal 1.5 hrs per month as per the BACP guidelines or 1hr twice per month for students in training.
My first session
The first session entails setting the scene for building a strong working alliance through offering a relaxed enviourment and respect the autonomy supervisees as they have their own level of of experience within the field of therapeutically working with mental health. Consultative Supervision offers supervisors that are in practice an opportunity to discuss and share specific details of the supervisees experiences within their practice that may be of concern, need a second opinion or that they may need advice on or just want to explore in detail with another professional. This differs from Supervision of therapists which is more of a guidance, clinical direction and educational.
