Health Psychology Supervision Services
The British Psychological Society defines supervision as one aspect of reflective practice, which the HCPC require as part of our annual continuing professional development (BPS 2017). Supervision is a way for practitioners to counterbalance biases in decision making as it enables us to step back from our work and consider different perspectives.
Having been a practitioner for many years, as well as training & supporting many HPs, I love to support practitioners at all levels of experience, and working across a broad range of settings through providing my tailored supervision services.
As well as the benefits gained from the supervision sessions themselves, my Supervisees also have exclusive access to a private webpage of supervision resources, bringing together themes & learning needs across SCPS supervisees as well as updating on professional guidelines and interesting tips and links.
My background: 20+ years of supervising HPs, Registered Applied Psychology Practice Supervisor (RAPPS). 15 years applied HP practice in Health and Social Care; 10 years of experience in independent practice. My bio

There is so much to gain in your practice from having access to an experienced Health Psychologist supervisor...
Supervisee's often choose to discuss their development to-date; considering their future goals and opportunities.
Having a chance to step back from your client work and identify what is working well.
Getting an external perspective and a chance to consider alternative approaches & plan your next steps.
Developing Your Services
Many supervisee's are starting companies or planning new services. Getting feedback on resources, materials, ideas or opportunities can help you think through your professional roles and responsibilities.
The best way to provide assurance about safe, effective & legal practice is to have an experienced, independent health psychologist supervisor, & to evidence the impact this has on your practice.
What do we talk about in Supervision?
Each session is unique and can be focused around all and any aspects of your practice. One week you might want career focused discussions; another you may need to focus on your therapeutic skills; next month you might want to focus on building your independent practice, or discussing themes across cases. My supervisee's also find unexpected benefits from supervision and feedback that sessions provide clarity, relieve their anxieties and build their confidence.
