Teresa provides therapy, supervision, training and consultancy in English and Portuguese.
Teresa provides clinical supervision and consultation for counsellors and psychotherapists, as well as for clinicians from various other professional backgrounds. Clinical supervision can be a single meeting or regular consultations.
The focus of supervision/consultation might include a combination of:
- Case discussions;
- Theory-practice links;
- Considerations of personal and professional development and CPD;
- Organisational, team management and team dynamics issues;
- Considerations of issues such as power, culture and social inclusion.
The emphasis could be on systemic perspectives to the clinician’s practice or on the clinician’s own theoretical model.
Supervision can be retrospective and may include audio/video material. Teresa also offers live supervision. “Live supervision” is a common practice in the field of systemic and family therapy. In this process, the supervisor joins the main therapist for sessions either as a co-therapist or as part of the “reflecting team”[i]. It might be intended for training purposes or any of the foci mentioned above.
