Fortnightly Group Supervision

Sumeet Grover | UKCP & BACP Registered Psychotherapist

At present, I only offer Group Supervision, in-person in Leighton Buzzard (LU7). I offer supervision to cover you for your clinical work with individual (1:1) clients.

Working in private practice can be a very solitary affair, and therefore, group supervision offers you the opportunity to:

  • Feel a sense of connectedness with other therapists, and feel part of a community;
  • Deepen your knowledge of clinical work by learning from the experience of others;
  • To experience how the unconscious object-relationships of a client can become constellated within a group.

 

My Approach to Clinical Supervision

Clinical supervision of counselling and psychotherapy work offers a nurturing and supportive space where you can step out of the intensity of your work in the therapy room, and begin to reflect on the unconscious undertones of your therapeutic relationships, and the ways in which they impact you.

Supervision with me is about being able to think the unthinkable, see the unseeable and to learn to work skilfully with what is challenging. I believe that supervision should help you feel more skilled, confident and capable in doing the work that you love.

My approach, at its core is relational, psychodynamic and trauma-informed.

We would be paying attention to the unconscious processes within the therapy room, including how these processes might linger on with you, and how to begin to detach from them. We will look at how the historic, unresolved and unmet relationships of a client repeat with you and others in the clients’ lives, and how this knowledge can enable you to facilitate a deeper therapeutic process and a more empathic relationship with your clients.

About Me

I am a BACP and UKCP Registered Psychotherapist with experience of working in the charity sector as well as private practice. I carried out my Psychiatric Observational Placement at the Baldock Manor Hospital, Hertfordshire, learning about the treatment and management of care for patients in a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) setting.

I work with adults (18+) and couples. I originally trained as a transpersonal psychotherapist, with focus on Jung’s psychology, psychodynamic theory and trauma theory, but my work in the past few years has found its core in psychodynamic psychotherapy.

My articles on Complex Trauma have been published by Welldoing.org and Transcend Media Service (TMS). I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP).

Supervision Training

I am currently enrolled on an advanced training in supervision, at the Institute for Group Analysis (IGA), London, with a psychodynamic orientation. I will be writing a qualifying paper at the end of my training, and by seeking supervision with me, you understand that I will be writing about our work by fully anonymising any details about you or your clients to respect everyone’s privacy.
