Through completing the CBT supervision training at the University of Sheffield, and subsequently supervising trainee and qualified therapists, I offer clinical supervision that emphasises therapist wellbeing as well as quality therapy. I use the CTS-R and Roth & Pilling competency frameworks as a foundation for supervision, as well as using clinical experience and reflective practice.
I have conducted research on therapist development and competencies. My research interests are: therapy competencies and skills development, social constructionism, grounded theory and action research.
Supervision is charged at £60 per hour, and I supervise trainee and qualified therapists.
The Process of Supervision
Much like the process of therapy, supervision should be a collaborative and empowering process. As such, supervisees are asked to actively participate, feedback and complete out-of-session work in order to get the most from supervision.
The purpose of supervision can be individual, depending on your experience, knowledge and skills. Typically, a mix of teaching, reflection and skills practice are important to ensure continued development.
