“…and thence we came forth to see again the stars.”
I provide Supervision and Consultation to trainee and qualified Psychotherapists, Counsellors, and Counselling/Clinical Psychologists, Mental Health workers, Social Workers, working both in my private practice and within agency settings.
I supervise practitioners who work using different modalities and approaches.
I use an Integrative-Relational style, I am a Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist (Certified Transactional Analyst), and a Provisional Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst (PTSTA).
I have experience working in various settings and adapting to the supervisee’s needs. I am at ease helping you to explore the nature of your therapeutic relationship with your clients and to consider unconscious processes and the transference/countertransference (or co-transference) matrix. This will serve to better understand your and your clients’ inner world, as well as enhancing your therapeutic efficacy.
I see supervision as a process rather similar to gardening. As some plants need different soil, pots, light, humidity, and watering, so you might come with different needs and different facilitating conditions for your own growth. The most important part of the supervisory process for me is the “re-potting”: once you have outgrown your initial pot, we would identify together with your newly-found growth conditions, and then broaden the breadth of our work. I will support you to develop your own style and identity as a therapist, as well as integrating different techniques and thinking processes in your own personal approach.
I draw on my experience with severe presentations (from Personality Disorders to Autism) and from the very different training I have done over the years (from Behavioural to Psychodynamic).
