In the world of therapeutic interactions, caseloads and clinical settings,
the terms 'supervision' and 'supervisor' are used differently from their more usual meanings and connotations.
In a consultative context, the supervisor's stance is collaborative and collegial - that is colleague to colleague
whether the supervision is one-to-one with an individual practitioner or in a group.
Note: Due to the pandemic situation, appointments may only be available for 'remote' supervision (online video or telephone); please check with individual practitioners.
'We aim to provide integrative supervision that is confidential, restorative, motivational, and educative'
'Supervision takes place with an agreement or contract that determines whether or not the supervisor assumes a monitoring role, which is a requirement for example when the supervisee is in training'
'We are experienced Supervisors who all come from a Gestalt tradition, and that ensures a supportive and relational approach to supervision with a contextual and holistic perspective'
UKCP [United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy] describes supervision as a key part of professional practice
'With many years of past experience as a trainer/supervisor on Counselling courses up to Diploma level at Cornwall College, now my supervision work is mostly in private practice. Additionally however, I provide clinical supervision for the NHS.
In my own training as a supervisor, I gained: a Certificate in Supervision awarded by the Metanoia Institute in 1999; a Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision awarded by Cascade Training Associates, in 2012; and a ABC Diploma in Casework Supervision, in 2012. I am listed in the UKCP register of Approved Supervisors (Humanistic/Integrative section).
Separately from my supervision work, having been UKCP-registered as a psychotherapist for over twenty five years, my psychotherapy and counselling practice is ongoing' .

'I am trained and qualified to offer supervision; I work with individuals and groups. I have a Diploma in Clinical Supervision from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham, a UKCP recognised Training Institute.
I work with supervisees to fit their practice to the context in which they are working whether this be private practice, voluntary organisations, the NHS or for private firms. I have experience of working as a Psychotherapist in all of these types of organisations. I understand how where you work affects how you practice.
I am interested and experienced in helping supervisees build and maintain a private counselling or psychotherapy practice and work to help them promote good business practice. I understand the pressures and constraints of both self employment and working for an employer'.

'I am a Gestalt psychotherapist and supervisor, with additional training in Transpersonal, Person-Centred and Art Therapy approaches. I'm an accredited registered member of BACP and hold a Level 6 Advanced Specialist Diploma in Clinical Supervision.
Since first discovering Art Therapy over 25 years ago I have always had a passion for creative approaches to therapy and personal development. The Gestalt model emphasises "experimenting" or "trying things out", to raise awareness and gain new insights. I like to bring this approach to my supervision work when appropriate, so am open to using art materials, cushion or "two-chair" work and other co-created experiments to complement the more verbal discussion of client work.
In addition to supervision, I also offer Counselling, Psychotherapy and Dreamwork, and run "Dream Circles" for those interested in exploring their dreams.
I work from my therapy rooms in Penzance and now also in Truro
