I have worked for over a year with online supervisees and find this way of working really ideal for supervision as you can find a supervisor that fits your needs even if the location isn't otherwise ideal.

Membership Number: 650
Description of my online supervision service: I offer one-off consultation; ongoing supervision is considered on a case by case basis.
I have been providing clinical supervision since 2001 and online field and clinical supervision since 2006. In the early days, supervision was delivered in a hybrid fashion- both online and in-person individually and in groups via email, chat and telephone. Now I also conduct consultation/supervision/counsellor education via audio/video platforms. I am available for one-off consultations regarding online therapy and supervision. Ongoing supervision will be considered on a case-by-case basis so as to address crossing borders and jurisdictional responsibilities since I am located in the United States. I also teach clinical supervision and online clinical supervision courses, certificates and certifications through Online Therapy Institute.

Hello, I’m Karen. I offer a safe and respectful space where you can reflect on your practice in a flexible way that meets your personal and professional needs. I tailor supervision to your particular needs and we can reflect together on what underpins your practice dilemmas and decisions. I always approach your supervision agenda with respect and compassion for what is important to you to bring to the sessions. I offer supervision via video, phone, and instant messaging to qualified therapists, counsellors and psychologists who are working with clients aged 18 and over.

Starting to work online as a therapist can be quite a daunting experience, but specialist supervision relating both to process and technical aspects of this new arena of work can be hugely helpful.  There is something thrilling in expanding your skills as a therapist, even as this can require thinking about so that you proceed with appropriate caution. I have worked as a face to face supervisor for both qualified and trainee psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors, in both the NHS and voluntary sector settings, as well as offering supervision privately. My background is as a secondary care psychologist in the NHS so I understand the particular settings in which psychological therapists work  (having been one myself for more than two decades) as well as the pressures and challenges of this work, particularly in this period of austerity. My own specialism was working on a specialist project for refugees and asylum seekers, which involved a lot of complex trauma work as well as support with rebuilding and restarting life after a major existential change. I relish working cross culturally, and have specialised in thinking about the impact of using interpreters in therapy, or working in second (or third) languages and how this can be supported (or not) by institutions and managers, creating systemic challenges for individual therapists. I am also really interested in how people manage challenges at work, and enjoy supervising individuals working in occupational health settings or for employee assistance programmes (EAPs). I am a relate trained couple counsellor, and have offered couple work face to face for many years, more recently seeking to expand my own therapeutic work with couples online. This is an area of expanding interest for me, and one in which I would be happy to learn together with supervisees seeking to develop practice in this area
