Clinical supervision is a space to reflect on your clinical work. It helps to ensure that your work is being carried out to high professional standards. It enables you to develop your professional competency to the full. This service is especially relevant where you are required to have an external supervisor. Clinical supervision is usually for up to a year or beyond. It can also be short-term to focus on a specific, possibly critical situation
Patrick has been my Clinical Supervisor since 2015. I find discussing my client work in my Private Practice with him an enriching, containing and valued experience. It is helpful to have Patrick, with his extensive knowledge and experience, offering insight and an overview of my client work. As a psychodynamic psychotherapist, it is greatly beneficial that he has such an in-depth understanding of this model. Patrick has helped me develop my career, as a lecturer, psychotherapist and director of clinical service and he has supported me to gain BACP accreditation.
