"I received a great deal of support from Phil ... and benefited from his broad experience of therapy ... which helped me to deepen my understanding of my work with clients " Claire Counsellor.
I offer one-to-one supervision to qualified and trainee therapists from any theoretical background who are interested in a supportive and empowering relationship to explore their work with clients.
I bring a broad range of experience of working with different client groups in a range of organisational contexts including the voluntary sector, the NHS, and independent practice.
For me, without diminishing the importance of theory, I see therapy as being less about the theoretical perspectives we bring to our relationships with clients, and more about the quality of the therapeutic relationship itself. I bring this understanding of the therapeutic relationship to my work with supervisee’s.
As a therapy supervisor I aim to:
I understand that all supervisees have their own areas of competence which will often exceed my own. In this spirit I see supervision as a collaborative collegiate activity where together we work on the issues that are of concern to you.
I offer my supervision work from an office in Didsbury, South Manchester.
You can find out more about how I work here.
In addition to supervision, I currently work in independent practice with couples and with men. I also write a men’s mental health blog and appear on radio. I also offer mediation for conflict resolution at work. You can find more information about me here.
Whatever your pofessional development aims are, please feel free to contact me informally to discuss your needs and to see if I can be of help.
