Supervision

I offer supervision to individuals and groups, mainly from my practice room in Batheaston.

I aim to offer supervision that is relational and creative, supporting therapists to reflect, learn and grow in service of their clients.  My model of practice is primarily influenced by Internal Family Systems and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, underpinned by my primary training in Psychosynthesis. My approach to supervision is also informed by Hawkins and Shohet’s ‘Seven-eyed model’. I have a Diploma in Supervision, awarded by the Centre for Supervision and Team Development (CSTD).

I have a range of experience that informs my work, including private practice, working as a counsellor in an agency specialising in sexual abuse and rape, and, in a previous career, as a senior manager providing supervision to front-line staff and managers within a children and families social work service.

What this means is that my style of supervision is based on building a strong, supportive container where we can explore together what’s happening in your work, giving attention to both content and process, and to mind, body, emotions, and spirit. You would find that I have a strong interest in trauma, including developmental trauma, and a curiosity about how the work with your client impacts on you, and me, and shows up in our sessions together.

Please contact me if you would like to explore having supervision with me by emailing liz@lizmartinscounselling.co.uk or phone me on 07977 932066.
