Clinical supervision should be a supportive space where therapists can hone their skills, gain new perspectives, and ensure that their clients receive high-quality therapy.
I provide supervision to groups and individuals from a broad range of disciplines. This has included: medics; counsellors; psychotherapists; occupational therapists; nurses; and psychologists in various contexts, including the NHS and academic settings.
BABCP accredited CBT supervision
Providing CBT supervision has been a regular part of my practice for nearly ten years. I gained my BABCP supervisor accreditation in 2017. This means that my training and experience are deemed suitable to provide supervision for other CBT therapists who are working towards or maintaining their own BABCP accreditation.
My approach to CBT supervision
My supervision approach aims to be responsive to the needs of my supervisees. I recognise these changes over time and aim to promote a trusting and safe supervisory relationship. Supervision sessions tend to loosely mirror the structure of a typical CBT session. For example, we discuss how to best use the available time at the start of each session. While I share information and opinions when wanted, I aim to support supervisees in developing their reflections. We may also draw from psychodynamic perspectives to consider issues in supervision.
Usually, supervision is within a regular (e.g., monthly) arrangement. However, sometimes I can accommodate requests for occasional (ad-hoc) supervision, focusing on a particular area of development to complement existing arrangements.
Supervision of supervision
I am experienced in providing ‘supervision of supervision’. I enjoy supporting other therapists in thinking through their own supervisory practice.
