Clinical Supervision

I am a qualified and experienced supervisor, offering a creative thinking space in which to support psychotherapists, counsellors, and trainees.

Clinical supervision should be a supportive and enriching process.  Whatever your level of experience, or therapeutic orientation, I offer a reflective space where constraints to thinking can be put aside and new ideas generated and explored.

In our work with clients we can sometimes become cautious, due, perhaps, to our efforts to `be helpful`, or `get it right`.  This can have a constraining effect on our work, limiting the creative possibilities. I aim to offer my supervisees an environment in which they dare to think the unthinkable, generate multiple meanings, and explore the therapeutic possibilities this offers.

My style is relaxed and my stance supportive. Supervision can be fun.  I work with clinicians from a range of theoretical backgrounds.  Your particular therapeutic approach is not in question.

"I find Ruth and excellent supervisor.  An accomplished juggler, she manages to offer rock solid support whilst never failing to challenge.  Working with her is a bit like being tenderly eviscerated by her laser-like insight, whilst being securely held.  Without ever undermining me, she has helped me explore every question I have raised and plenty more I hadn't thought of".   Helen D. Psychotherapeutic counsellor.
