Supervision is a professional and ethical part of all clinical work. It has many functions, but serves primarily as protection for both client and practitioner. It can be educative in nature, helping the therapist to develop skills and theoretical models of understanding. It can provide mentoring, consultative, restorative and collegial functions.
All learning in supervision is through the relationship between the supervisee and supervisor and mutual outcomes through discussion will always be the focus.
Carol Lucas B.Ed Hons (cantab), TSTA and CTA has broad experience as a supervisor across a wide range of theoretical models and with supervisees with varying levels of experience, since 1997.
She currently runs a UKATA registered training establishment at The south manchester centre for psychotherapy and several supervision groups as well as supervising qualified and trainee practitioners in South Manchester and North Wales.
Carol has worked as an expert witness within the legal system and supervises the management team of several psychotherapy and counselling organisations in the statutory and voluntary sectors across the Manchester and North Wales area. She is Chair of the Training and Standards Committee for The United Kingdom Association for Transactional Analysis.
Supervision can either be on an individual basis or within a group and can be attended monthly or bi-monthly and can be combined with private, overnight accommodation in a beautiful, outstanding, countryside environment.
'We opted to do our supervision away from home on a monthly basis - I travel to North Wales once a month with two colleagues, it takes us an hour to get there and we all agree that it really is the best thing we have decided to do. We love the journey, the environment is beyond belief and needs to be seen to be believed and we spend the whole day receiving supervision and discussing our work - it feels replenishing and so enjoyable - we also stay overnight sometimes - it is just good to be with each other and our monthly treat.
Carol is very professional, organised, friendly and helps us develop without it being too much of a challenge - she is also funny.'
