The Intercultural Supervision at Mabadiliko Therapy Ltd is currently provided by Beverley J Weston.
My style as a clinical supervisor is an extension of my therapeutic approach. Intercultural supervision is useful for enhancing the cultural competence of Counsellors & Psychotherapists. Enabling the ability to be able to work with 'difference and diversity' in a culturally and spiritually sensitive way.
Consideration is given to the development of the therapists intercultural understanding and self perception, as well as the clients racial, ethnic and spiritual background. This enhances transpersonal experiences and the therapeutic relationship, supporting the process of personal growth and transformation.
Supervision is a confidential and collaborative clinical learning environment based on mutuality between the supervisor and the supervisee. My role as your supervisor is to facilitate an ethical 'holding' space to enable you the supervisee to reflect and learn about yourself as well as explore and understand the dynamics within the therapeutic relationship with your clients.
The supervisor/supervisee working alliance is fundamental for effective supervision to be established, as it parallels the importance of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client.
I provide you with a space to receive constructive feedback to enhance your practice, allowing time to explore you as a person as well as your practice as a counsellor/therapist. The main theoretical approach is Integrative Psychodynamic, influenced by Intercultural and Relational perspectives.
Many different approaches are combined to accommodate the needs of the supervisee and the client; and consider the impact of culture, ethnicity and spirituality on individuals regardless of race, gender or sexuality; inclusive of both the therapist/counsellor and client.
Support with ethical dilemmas, practical suggestions to improve your CPD experience and aspects of life coaching is also offered.
