I started the CSTD Certificate in Supervision in July 2014 and have some experience of supervising. 

Why you are offering this service:
I would like to extend and develop my supervision skills and practice while I am training with CSTD.

What supervision you have in place for your supervision:
I currently have 2-2 1/2 hours of individual supervision per month for my work as a school counsellor, and attend regular peer supervision. I will arrange additional supervision for new supervision and client work.

Anything else you would like to be known about your work:
I am an integrative humanistic therapist. I like the way the CSTD training has highlighted for me the importance of process, awareness and relationship in supervision. I like to draw on my knowledge and experience of Gestalt, psychodynamic and systemic ideas and  attachment theory, and am always open to new perspectives.
