Supervision

Individual and group supervision, or clinical discussion groups are invaluable to psychotherapists, counsellors, medical practitioners and those  in the allied professions. It is essential for mental health professionals, social workers, nurses, Dramatherapsists, Art therapists, as well as body orientated practitioners.

Supervision provides a place for support, encouragement, analysis, insight and feedback.

I work from an Integrative approach, with a deep consideration of other theories and approaches as appropriate.  I am interested in the reflective and parallel process of supervision which can offer a mirror of the therapeutic process with clients. The discovery of which can offer profound understanding of client material.

Body Image and Identity

An exploration

27th March 10 – 5pm
Whitelands College, Roehampton University

This workshop will explore working body image and identity. Body image is a complex concept. It is of a mercurial nature, the self-image we have in our mind’s eye. It is affected by all relationships with family peers media and all of life’s experiences, and how people believe others perceive them. One characteristic people often hold in common who have eating disorders is a high level of body dissatisfaction or negative body image; they are deeply displeased and highly critical of their body. Displeasure is a more accurate indication of how they feel on the inside than how they look on the outside.

A healthy body image includes having a realistic picture of our body, accepting this image without fear or shame, recognising the wholeness and connectedness of our body, mind, and spirit, and allowing ourselves to experience our infinite capacity for pleasure.

Learning outcomes

  • The workshop will provide and introduction to techniques to use with clients when working with body image.
  • Understanding origins of body image. Storytelling, including the role of the mother and father’s body in relationships with their daughter and or son.

Working with Sexual issues and sexuality

exploring sexuality in therapy

17th April 10 – 5pm
Whitelands College, Roehampton University

Concerns about sex and intimacy are common. This workshop will address working with sexual issues. Exploring the feelings that arise, including shame, the work can evoke in both our clients and us. Many of our experiences of love, intimacy and sexuality are linked unconsciously to feelings of shame; guilt or fear and we do not always recognize that our thoughts about these topics prevent us from fully expressing and receiving love.
This workshop will introduce ways to help you and clients to develop a healthy sense of sexuality and desire and be able to integrate this into a developed practice.

 

Learning outcomes

  • The workshop will provide and introduction to working with sexuality and intimacy.
  • Transform negative and positive core beliefs.
  • The workshop will be skills based and will focus on: assessment, transferential issues and relationship dynamics, using directive and non-directive practice.
  • Communication, sexual issues, psychosexual counselling and ethical complexity.
The workshop is suitable for anyone who is interested in these areas for themselves, or for practitioners and those in training who want to support their work with others who wish to expand their knowledge and skills in working with psychosexual issues. It has been designed to contribute to the continuous professional development needs of qualified practitioners who work in the field of mental health.
