Skype, FaceTime, or Phone Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic or Jungian Supervision
We provide psychoanalytic and psychodynamic supervision for counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists. We do this by Skype, Facetime or phone for therapists working anywhere in the world. Of course it can seem difficult working with a supervisor you haven't met, but sometimes there isn't an appropriately qualified and experienced supervisor working locally. And currently there are restrictions on face to face work due to corona virus.
The theoretical model we use is psychoanalytic and psychodynamic and our preferred way of working is similar to that described in Patrick Casement's book, " On Learning from the Patient" - in other words, a modern British Object Relations approach, favouring the work of Winnicott and Bion. However, because we have worked extensively in the NHS, we are pragmatic in our approach. We consider that the central task of the supervisor is to provide a facilitative environment to assist the therapist in following the content of the client's material, both what is on the surface and what the underlying meanings might be. We also place a strong emphasis on keeping the therapist and patient safe. This means helping the therapist to maintain a manageable caseload and also helping them with risk assessment.
Skype & phone supervision have huge geographical advantages. There may not be an experienced and well trained therapist working nearby. Also, people are often short of time and so it's better for them to do 50 minutes in their home or workplace than to travel 40 minutes there and 40 minutes back in addition to the 50 minutes. Another advantage of telephone supervision is that, for people with mobility problems, there's no need to go out of the home. Additionally, skype & phone supervision provides a reduced financial and ecological cost in that petrol or diesel is not being burned up on the journey. This Skype & phone supervision is for both individual therapists and for counselling and psychotherapy organisations.
Please feel free to call us to have a free preliminary discussion to explore whether it might be a good enough fit. We are open to working with counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists who haven't had a formal psychodynamic or psychoanalytic training.
We have a sliding scale of lower fees for students or for therapists who are suffering financially due to corona virus.
Supervision costs £65 for a 50 minute session and we accept payment by cash, Paypal, bank transfer and cheque.
