All accredited psychological therapists have a supervision requirement in
their code of ethics. Supervision is recognised as both invaluable and
essential, however experienced the therapist. Mentoring is now a requirement
for all AAMET registered practitioners.
Supervision or mentoring is important to a practising therapist in a number of different ways. It allows the therapist access to a more experienced practitioner who can offer support with cases, identify skill gaps and give guidance regarding additional training. Support can also be given with management and administration issues in the therapists practice. Most importantly, mentoring can offer a safe and comfortable place for the therapist to explore issues that may be coming up for them in their therapeutic work (known as countertransference). Recognising when clients “push our buttons” helps us to keep our stuff out of the therapy room, not as easy as it might sound! Supervision and mentoring are carried out in an atmosphere of mutual respect and empathy.
Richard is an accredited psychotherapy supervisor and AAMET approved mentor and is available to offer supervvisioon and mentoring to EFT practitioners, either one-to-one or in groups. Richard is available for one-to-one mentoring in West London and Sussexand also by Skype or telephone.
