What is
Supervision?

Supervision is not just a professional requirement- it’s a vital asset in the journey of every therapist (or any other professional who works with people), contributing to their professional development.  At its heart is the relationship: a collaborative space that nurtures growth, learning, and skill enhancement. 

 

I’m dedicated to offering supervision that goes beyond the conventional; it’s a true collaboration, designed to facilitate your professional growth, clinical competence, and to integrate that with your personal circumstances and development.  Working with me, you’ll find the space to reflect on your work, to discuss ethical dilemmas, try out new ideas, learn about new research and interventions, and ponder what might come next in your professional development, all whilst considering your personal circumstances and how they might be impacting your work.    

 

Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or a trainee, together we can explore your clinical practice and professional development, and cultivate a deeper understanding of yourself as a professional.

As your Supervisor, I bring a wealth of experience and qualifications to help guide and support your own professional journey.  I hold a Post-Graduate Certificate in Supervision, earned in 2020, and bring well over a decade’s experience as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist.  My educational background, post BSc (hons) degree has focused on specialised training in Somatic Trauma Therapy with Babette Rothchild and Polyvagal training at the Polyvagal Institute with Deb Dana, as well as other trainings and research on shame and trauma.

 

My approach to supervision is deeply rooted in creating a safe and open space.  I believe in the power of authenticity and encourage you to bring your whole self to our sessions.  Understanding a bit about your personal history and current circumstances is integral to understanding your decision making in your clinical work.  By creating an environment of trust and transparency, I aim to ensure our work goes beyond mere tick-box compliance.  I want you to experience supervision as a unique opportunity for genuine growth and development as a professional.

 

In our initial ‘chemistry session’, we’ll ensure that we both feel comfortable working together and that our working relationship aligns with your goals and needs.  Whether you’re a seasoned therapist, trainee, or other professional working with people, I tailor my work to what you need.  My commitment is to empower your professional growth and clinical competence, as reflected in the testimonials of those people I’ve had the privilege of working with.

 

Ultimately, what sets my supervision approach apart is my authenticity, honesty, and unwavering support.  I genuinely care about your success and wellbeing, and approach our work as a collaboration; a partnership.  Together we can explore your clinical practice, foster a deeper understanding of your professional identity, and work through the unique challenges and opportunities that come your way.

"Zoe is an incredible supervisor that does not only role model the real nature of therapy but she also maintains a high standard of ensuring that supervision fulfils its purpose. Personally, I am very particular and needed to work with someone that I knew would be honest, as well as trustworthy. I felt that from the first time I spoke to Zoe and this only enhanced our working relationship in supervision. Zoe demonstrates a real passion for the therapy field and I always felt that she had a passion for me to grow. For someone as particular as myself, I was both grateful and amazed at how much I felt able to share, which also influenced my growth as a practitioner. I have experienced different supervisors in my career and Zoe stands out as the best I have had - keeping in mind; I did like my other supervisors too. Zoe's commitment to accommodating, supporting and challenging me to grow has been such a unique part of my journey. Her ability to recognise my background/interest in Psychology and utilise that for my development was crucial for me. It always kept my interests sparked but more importantly, it was relevant to my learning and practice."

Frequently Asked Questions

How much supervision do I need? The amount of supervision you need depends on your professional organisation’s requirements and, for those in training, is usually at a ratio to your client work. If you’re not a member of a professional organisation or they don’t specify requirements, then we can discuss and tailor the amount of supervision to your needs.

Can we contract for contact outside of our sessions? Yes – if you have an urgent client issue, it’s best to contact me and we can arrange a phone consultation lasting up to 15 minutes free of charge. For emergency consultations requiring more than 15 minutes, a full session fee will apply and we can schedule a dedicated appointment.

Which therapeutic modalities do you supervise? My approach is primarily classed as ‘Humanistic Integrative’ integrating theories of Person- Centred, Gestalt, Object Relations (with a focus on Attachment Theory), and Solution Focused Practice. Additionally, I integrate knowledge from specialised trainings on working with the somatic effects of trauma and shame, such as Somatic Trauma Therapy and Polyvagal Practice. I don’t supervise practitioners solely focused on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Psychodynamic theories.

Which clinical demographic work do you supervise? Presently, I supervise work conducted with individual adults (aged 18+) done either in-person, online, or by phone. I don’t supervise work done with couples, or children and young people.

I need longer than a one-hour supervision session per month – is this possible? Absolutely. Most therapy practitioners opt for the BACP recommended 1.5-hour session. If you’re a therapy trainee, we can tailor your supervision to match the required ration for your clinical hours, accommodating both your professional body and course requirements.

Do you offer group supervision? Yes.

I’m a therapy trainee and need you to also complete forms and a report for my course requirements. How does this work? Typically, we can take a session to collaboratively work through your report, ensuring it aligns with your course requirements. For any additional time spent on admin tasks outside of sessions, I charge a fee of £25 for every 15 minutes. We’ll always agree on this arrangement before I proceed with the additional work.

I’m not a therapy trainee, but I need you to complete reports or forms for various purposes. How do we proceed with this? We can schedule a session to collaboratively work on the reports or forms you need and/or any additional time spent on admin tasks are charged at £25 per 15 minutes and we will agree on this beforehand. It’s important to note that I don’t charge for providing references for job applications.

Do you offer in-person sessions on days other than Tuesday? No, in-person sessions are exclusively available on Tuesdays at my Edgbaston office. Online sessions provide flexibility on other days, ensuring you can access support when it suits you best.
