Supervision

‘Quality work cannot be sustained alone.’ 

(Hawkins and McMahon 2020: 1)

I am currently in training as a counselling and psychotherapy supervisor with CSTD Bath. Whilst in training, I am able to offer low-cost supervision and my practice will be supervised by a UKCP supervisor.


I work from an intersubjective and dialogical perspective and relatedness is at the core of my approach to supervision.


My supervision practice is informed by the ‘Seven-Eyed’ model first developed by Hawkins and Shohet in the 1980s (5th edition Hawkins and McMahon: 2020). From the focus on the client of mode one through to the interlocking processes and relationships of supervisee/client/supervisor/system, the ‘Seven-Eyed’ model allows a considered and comprehensive exploration of the work.


In working with supervisees, I draw from McMahon’s four ‘guiding principles’ (Hawkins and McMahon 2020: 60-61). These are to:


  • Offer emotional presence and sensitivity
  • Value both vulnerability and competence
  • Offer knowledge and experience with humility
  • Develop a relationship to support continued personal and professional growth.


In a Winnicottian sense, I want my supervisees to feel held and to encourage a sense of play within a creative and facilitative shared space.
