Clinical Supervision for Trainee Counsellors and Psychotherapists
Gareth offers clinical supervision to trainee psychotherapists and counsellors.
Gareth holds a Master of Science in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). He has completed formal supervision training and holds a qualification in Essential Supervision Skills (BPS Approved Certificate in Clinical Supervision). He is a registered member of the BACP and holds provisional accreditation with the BABCP.
In addition to his core profession as an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, he has 10 years of clinical experience working in talking therapies in the NHS since 2009. He also has experience of operating a successful private practice here at Grays Therapy with clinics both in the National Forest and Harley Street, London.
Clinical supervision is an integral part of a psychotherapist and counsellor's training and ongoing practice. Gareth offers clinical supervision to trainee integrative psychotherapists and counsellors seeking a safe place to discuss cases, reflect on the work and approaches used, consider ethical dilemmas that might arise in their work, and the emotional impact of the clinical work they are engaging in. It will also give trainees a chance to develop a theoretical understanding of approaches and how this applies in clinical practice. Regular supervision will also help trainees to meet the core requirements of their training course and work towards professional registration.
As an additional requirement of my training, it was mandatory that I engage in personal therapy. Again this is something that I felt was invaluable to my training and personal development and can be extremely helpful as an ongoing part of professional practice. When seeking clinical supervision and personal therapy at the same time, it is important to find a therapist that meets your needs and that your clinical supervisor and therapist are different people. This helps to maintain professional boundaries and to be clear about the aims of the sessions.
All supervision sessions are face to face and on an individual basis. Supervision sessions are charged at a rate of £40 per hour. For more information, please email Gareth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Supervision sessions are offered at our practice in the National Forest, DE12. This is located near the village of Overseal, Derbyshire.
