Supervision

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

My practice is primarily influenced by Internal Family Systems (IFS), underpinned by my primary training in Psychosynthesis, and with an awareness of the body from my training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I have a Diploma in Supervision, awarded by the Centre for Supervision and Team Development (CSTD),  based on Hawkins and Shohet’s ‘Seven-eyed model of supervision’.

I am approved by the Internal Family Systems Institute as an IFS Clinical Consultant/Supervisor. This means that IFS practitioners and therapists working towards IFS Certification can use supervision/consultation time with me towards the required criteria. I am happy to offer IFS consultancy to people who have another primary supervisor, or to be the primary supervisor. I am experienced in supporting therapists to integrate and develop their IFS practice, at whatever stage they are at with the model.

I am also happy to work with people who are trained in other models and have no intention of undertaking IFS training.

I have a range of experience that informs my work as a supervisor. This includes working in private practice, working as a counsellor in an agency offering services to survivors of sexual assault, and, in a previous career, in a senior manager role providing supervision to front-line staff and managers within a children and families social work service.

My style of supervision is based on building a strong, supportive container where we can explore together what’s happening in your work. You would find that I have a strong interest in trauma, including developmental and complex trauma, and a curiosity about how the work with your client impacts on you, and me, and shows up in our sessions together.

My fee for supervision is £60 per hour. I offer sessions of an hour or 90 minutes.

Please contact me if you would like to explore having supervision with me by emailing lizmartinstherapy@gmail.com or phone me on 07977 932066.
