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.
'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, and as a clinical supervisor for the NHS, nowadays my supervision work is mostly in private practice.
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
