I undertook my supervision training in 2007 with Elke Lambers affiliated with Person-Centred Therapy Britain and the Counselling Unit of Strathclyde University,Glasgow.
My qualification is the 'PCT Britain Post-Diploma Certificate in Supervision'
Both my counselling diploma and supervision training are Person Centred. I have a special interest in Attachment Theory and have undertaken extensive training with Lindy Cundy at The Wimbledon Guild Counselling Service. I have also studied CBT with Dr Adrian Hemmings; a course specialy tailored for Counsellors trained in other modalities and Solution Focused Brief Therapy with Harvey Ratner and Chris Iveson (BRIEF).
My supervision style is Person Centred and I believe that the relationship between the supervisor and supervisee should be one which enables growth and understanding of the therapeutic relationship. I see my relationship with my supervisees as being one of mutual respect. I do not consider myself to be 'the expert' but I will ask questions about your clients and your work and draw upon my experiences over the last twenty or so years to share with you what I think might be helpful.
There may be times when events in your personal life at home or in the work place seem overwhelming and supervision may need to be more focused on your issues.While being mindful of boundaries and when personal therapy may be more appropriate my priority will your self-care so that you are able to practice to the best of your ability.
I also see my role as being available to discuss theoretical and ethical issues. I am also available to offer assistance with accreditation, by discussing or reading through your application, before it is submitted.
