Part of my joy in helping clients is to support and develop counsellors, therapeutic counsellors and psychotherapeutic counsellors in working with clients. I particularly work with and enjoy working with counsellors who use creativity and movement in their practice, or counsellors who wish a creative and/or movement dimension in their supervision.
My approach is broadly humanistic integrative in perspective and blends creativity with experiential, gestalt and person centred counselling and psychotherapeutic approaches.
I have also supported and developed professional trainee DMPs on their MA in DMP programmes and have also supervised final year students on an undergraduate Creative Expressive Therapies programme (2015/17) at Derby University. I was also an Academic Supervisor for final year students on the MA in DMP programme.
I also offer private supervision to trainee and newly qualified dance movement psychotherapists, having had first hand experience of teaching and supervising on the MA DMP programme at Derby University (2013-18).
I currently have a few spaces for counsellors and look forward to receiving initial enquiries.
Supervision Coventry - Are you a counsellor in training or a qualified counsellor and need of clinical supervision?
Paul's specialism is that he can and often works creatively with counselling supervisees as well and draws from the same physicality/emotionality/psychology/spirituality aspects of dance, movement, the performance art of clowning, various art and media forms - along with the more 'traditional' aspects of 'talking therapies' supervision. He offers you creative, embodied, relational, experiential, movement based supervision.
Paul also offers supervision for trainee or newly qualified or experienced dance movement psychotherapists with a blend of social constructionism, person centred and gestalt therapies with a developmental somatic edge.
He also offers supervision to professionals who work in the areas of social work, education or the like, who feel they would benefit from exploring various issues that concern them in a safe, creative and confidential space. See the ‘Supervision’ page for further information.
