Cinzia Altobelli MSc RGN

Experience/qualifications : I am a UKCP registered independent psychotherapist and supervisor with a nursing background. I have been a qualified counsellor since 1992 , completed an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy in 2005 at the Metanoia Institute and a Certificate in Supervision at CDST in 2011. I have been providing clinical supervision since 2007.I worked with both supervisees and supervisors offering individual and group supervision in a wide range of contexts including the NHS, multidisciplinary and specialist teams in the community and more recently schools when working in partnership with the Place2be counsellors.

In the last 14 years I worked in the field of addiction at For Families a division of Action on Addiction (formerly Clouds) that supports families affected by addiction.I was Leader of Therapeutic services since 2007 developing innovative therapeutic interventions, accredited training, managing and supervising a team of counsellors and projects.

I have been an independent psychotherapist, supervisor and coach in training since February 2015.

Particular area of interest: the parallel process in supervision especially when working in the field of addiction where blame &shame can be recurring themes. I am interested in organizational supervision, systemic work with team/families, mentalization based treatment with individuals and families.
My supervision: I am in supervision with Dr Jenifer Elton Wilson

My approach :I like to work collaboratively and I am keen to make supervision a two way stimulating, helpful & transparent process.I work integratively using the Seven-eye supervision model and draw from various thinking such as TA, CAT, MBT, CBT, Systemic Theories, Person centred,Self Psychology, Psychodynamic ,Attachment and Neurobiology to understand clients’ presentation.
