Supervision For Practitioners
I offer one to one supervision for therapists, coaches, psychosexual bodyworkers, Tantra practitioners and anyone else who works on a one-to-one or group basis in the human growth or therapeutic fields.
How do I work? Primarily in the 'Here and Now', somatically and cognitively, with the interpersonal field, mindfulness, relationship dynamics (Family Systems Theory). Bringing more than 15 years experience as a Transpersonal psychotherapist, I developed my own 5 pillared approach to trauma resolution, Transpersonal Somatics, and many other therapeutic models, including energy psychology (EFT), psychodynamic theories, Jungian psychology, the victim triangle, integrating polarities, all moving towards being deeply embodied into a place of essence. My main aim, to awaken individuals beyond their current limitations, this can include their sexuality. Additional trainings include Psychology of Vision, Humaniversity, Totality Therapy with Dr Shakti Malan (I am a co-facilitator of this 21 month training). I also heavily draw from Somatic experiencing and the Subtle Self work of Judith Blackstone.
I am a founding member of the Association of Somatic and Integrative Sexologists in London, dedicated to the field of embodiment and human potential.
Some ideas of themes are:
- Working with resistance/Feeling stuck/Behavioural Patterns/Unsure of what's next.
- Trauma Resolution, particularly developmental trauma.
- Many therapists unconsciously collude with their clients (co-dependency). Supervision can untangle where you are tangled.
- To touch, or not to touch. This is a minefield for the practitioner.
- Boundary issues, projections, transference and countertransference.
- Sexuality. To a large degree, sexuality is left out of therapy, other than Freudian theories on libido and ‘splitting’ in relationships.
- Beyond talking and starting to work with the body
- The victim quadrant and being of real* service to our clients. The role of rescuer (or helper or healer) in family dynamics is usually what leads many of us to a therapeutic path, BUT are you really helping your clients, or (unconsciously) keeping them victims?
*Real service, in the sense of you actually want them to wake up to more of who they are.
One to one supervision with 2 or 3 other practitioners. A very rich way to experience supervision is to book my time with 2 or 3 other practitioners and split the cost between you. It is rich because you learn from all the material presented, and notice the different skills and insights from each practitioner. Book a session.
