SUPERVISION AND TRAINING

If you need supervision or want to improve your practice, I can help as I am experienced, accredited, and able to design supervision to your needs.

CBT Training and Supervision

I have a great deal of experience in delivering CBT supervision, and am accredited by BABCP as a supervisor. I have delivered supervision to a wide range of professionals from Psychiatric Nurses and Social Workers to Consultant Psychiatrists. I have supervised Trainee Clinical Psychologists and practitioners studying for a Diploma in CBT at the University of Southampton. I am familiar with supporting clinicians at different stages of their development at many levels of their training, shaping them to pass placements, academic work and therapy tapes. I have used the Cognitive Therapy Rating Scale – Revised a great deal and find it a valuable tool in improving clinicians’ therapeutic skills.

In 2012 I was the senior clinician to extract psychosis data for the Department of Health project based at UCL to establish a Competence Framework for Psychological Interventions with people with Psychosis and Bipolar Disorder. I critically reviewed eight key CBT for Psychosis manuals, extracting knowledge and skills and working closely with Professor Tony Roth and the Expert Reference Group to construct the framework (Click here to view PDF).

Behavioural Family Therapy CBT Training and Supervision

I am also trained in Behavioural Family Therapy and became a qualified trainer in March 2008. This evidence-based intervention for Psychosis complies with guidance from NICE for Schizophrenia/Psychosis (NICE Schizophrenia: Core interventions in the treatment and management of schizophrenia in adults in primary and secondary care, March 2009). Since completing this training I have trained several cohorts of NHS professionals and run monthly supervision groups to support their practice

Mindfulness for Psychosis CBT Training and Supervision

I have been running Mindfulness for Psychosis groups for eight years, and have published in this area. The approach I take has been developed specifically for this client group. I offer training and supervision in this work.
