What we offer

Ed offers clinical supervision to Counsellors and Psychotherapists both qualified and in training who work with adults (18+), concession rates are available for trainee therapists. 

The model of supervision that he offers is based on the Seven Eyed model by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet. This model offers supervision from both relational and systemic perspectives by looking at seven different aspects:

  1. Focusing on the clients and exploring what and how they present
  2. Exploring the strategies and interventions used by the therapist when working with the client
  3. Focussing on the relationship between the client and the supervisee 
  4. Focussing on the supervisee
  5. Focussing on the supervisory relationship
  6. The supervisor focussing on their own experience 
  7. Focusing on the wider context in which the work happens – considering the system the client finds themselves in

In terms of modalities that he works with and has experience of, his initial training focused on Petruska Clarkson’s Five Relationship Model which integrates a range of theories drawing significantly from psychodynamic and relational approaches. He also has an interest in other models of therapy including Internal Family Systems, the work of Janina Fisher, Somatic interventions and EMDR. Since qualifying he has undertaken further training specialising in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. 

He currently works as a Counsellor in a Secondary Care DBT Team in the NHS working both with individuals and groups. This work is primarily with people who have experienced complex trauma, and before that, five years in a Crisis Team providing crisis intervention. 

Alongside his NHS work, he also has a thriving private practice (Sammons Therapy) and is happy to support newly qualified Therapists as they begin their journey into private practice and to support them to develop this area of their practice, both the exciting opportunities this might provide and also the challenges of working independently. 

Please get in touch if you would like to arrange an initial consultation with Ed.
