In my private practice I offer clinical supervision to counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists.
Clinical supervision is an important support process for those in therapeutic and counselling professions.
It is a collaborative process to learn about and improve therapeutic practice and, ultimately, to offer a better service to our clients.
Some Literature quotes about supervision:
Supervision is a working alliance between two professionals where the supervisees offer an account of their work, reflect on it, receive feedback and receive guidance if appropriate. The object of this alliance is to enable the worker to gain in ethical competency , confidence and creativity so as to give the best possible service to clients”. (Inskipp and Proctor , 2001)
Supervision is a place of trust where a healthy relationship gives me a safe place to acknowledge and work with my clinical concerns, stresses, fears and joys (Johnson, 2003)
Supervision is a regular, protected time for facilitated, in depth reflection on clinical practice (Bond and Holland 1998)
A supervisory session is a conversation between myself and the supervisee, looking at challenges that arise with clients. Sessions may include a variety of approaches, from educational to creative to experiential.
Use of role play to find out where the client might be ‘at’
Mind mapping surrounding issues (e.g. economic, gender) that impact on a person’s life
Exploratory ‘unpacking’ of issues and themes
Finding a systemic view of the client’s situatio
The supervisee’s client, as case study, serves as a focal point throughout the process.
Below are some issues that can be helpful to explore during the session:
How our belief systems shape our views
Challenging our belief systems if they create blind spots
Parallel process issues that want to be addressed
Identifying the therapist’s role with a particular client
Looking at surrounding issues belonging to the client: economic, gender, social privileges or marginalisation, educational background, class, sexual orientation, education, race, religion, social status, etc.
Both group and individual supervision sessions are available.
