CATARINA VASCONCELOS

Alongside my clinical work, I started working as a clinical supervisor in 2014 overseeing the work of counsellors working with children in schools. I supervise in-training therapists as well as qualified practitioners, within a psychodynamic and integrative approach. I am passionate about helping other therapists in their learning and professional growth. Supervision offers a safe space for counsellors to explore and reflect on therapeutic work, including difficulties that may come up. I offer a supportive supervisory relationship where clients’ needs are at the centre of our thinking and self-awareness is encouraged. Depending on a supervisee’s needs, I like to make use of creativity, imagery and experiential exercises. Currently, I am training towards accreditation as a Counselling Supervisor with the BACP at CPTA. I offer low-cost individual supervision to therapists working with children. My practice is overseen by a qualified clinical supervisor and covered by professional insurance.
