Supervision

As a TA Psychotherapist and Supervisor working in central Edinburgh I am currently taking on new supervisees for both individual and group supervision starting in October 2016. This could be for a particular problem you are experiencing in your practice, for general supervision, or for those students who are starting out in private practice or on placement.

Individual supervision – I am available for individual supervision on a Tuesday afternoon and evening. Individual supervision sessions will be held monthly and last for one hour. The fee will be £45 per session.

Group supervision – I am available for group supervision on a Friday morning and afternoon. The group will meet on a monthly basis for three hour sessions. The maximum size of the group will be three, with each practitioner receiving one hour of direct supervision from myself. The fee will be £45 each per session.

Supervision sessions will take place at 93 George Street, Edinburgh.

Please get in touch if you are interested in attending, or if you would like further information.

Supervision

I have recently started a course in Counselling Supervision through Physis Training, and as part of this course I need some supervision hours. I am therefore offering FREE individual supervision to students in counselling/psychotherapy training, and qualified counsellors/psychotherapists.

This could be for a particular problem you are experiencing in your practice, for general supervision, or for those students who are starting out in private practice or on placement.

I am available on a Tuesday afternoon & Tuesday evening. Supervision sessions will take place at 93 George Street, Edinburgh.

Please get in touch if you would like extra supervision.

With this in mind, my new Business Consultancy page outlines some of the different kinds of support I can provide, and the potential benefits for your workers and your organisation as a whole.

Do You Have a Wellbeing Toolbox?

I came across the following post on Facebook entitled “Coping Toolbox”.

A coping toolbox is basically a collection of your favourite things that you can access when you are feeling stressed, anxious or upset. I often refer to it as a “wellbeing toolbox” in my work with clients.

I’m wondering what sort of things help you to feel better, calm or more grounded when you’re feeling stressed, anxious or de-stabilised? What things might you think of putting in or adding to your “toolbox”?

New Year Resolutions

With New Year round the corner many of us may be thinking of making a resolution. The cultural significance we attach to New Year can be helpful in giving us a psychological boost – some extra impetus to stick to a diet, cut down on cigarettes or cycle to work for example.

It’s good to make the most of an opportunity that only comes round once in a while, but it’s also important that we don’t let it become an emotional burden. Like everything in life, we can get much more benefit if we take our individual circumstances and needs into account and set realistic goals for ourselves.
