I have experience of supervising child therapy students, graduates and experienced practitioners both one-to-one and in groups. Supervisions take place in my room in central Cambridge or online by arrangement.
In my supervision, I aim to provide an open, supportive and collaborative approach to reflecting on a supervisee's clients. Together we consider all aspects of the work to ensure professional, ethical, safe and effective practice is maintained.
The model of supervision I provide is an integrative one, which takes in all aspects of the work, based on the following:
IN THE ROOM: Clients presentation and activities, therapist's interventions, and the therapeutic relationship
IN THE WORLD: Reason for referral, client's history and situation, school and social contexts
IN THE PROCESS: Supervisee's context, placement/organisational requirements, supervisor's observations, theoretical background and safeguarding
My aim is to build on knowledge and competence and provide containment to help develop therapy practice.
