Supervision for therapists
If you are reading this, you are either a therapist or student looking for something. Perhaps you don't know what you are looking for.
I know how it feels to search for one's unique voice as a therapist.
I know how hard it is to find a place where you receive validation for your idiosyncratic view and voice, together with streching and challenging your comfort zone. I know the journey to the “shadow” parts, and how to bring more of our self-states to therapy.
My therapeutic approach is an integrative-systematic with a strong focus on the here-and-now.
I am a certified supervisor from the Israeli association of couple and family therapy.
As a supervisor I bring all my different parts and experiences from the worlds of therapy, improvisation and experiential education. I stand on the shoulders of the family therapy giants (Whitaker, Schnarch, Haley, Bowen, Minuchin, Satir, Byng-hall, Papp...), as well as the active, intersubjective, relational, experiential thinkers (Moreno, Keeney, Winnicot, Ringstrom, Wiener, Gottman, Stern, White, Adler...). I also play with the great teachers of improvisation in the performing arts (Johnstone, Spolin, Fox, Boal, Zaporah, wunder, Miesner...). All these geniuses meet and interact with us in the room in light of your and our specific learning needs.
I have dedicated the past years for my PhD research on teaching therapists improvisational skills, in the academy and in the field. My trainings have helped dozens of therapists to bring more of themselves, increase therapeutic presence (Geller and Greenberg, 2002), therapeutic charisma (Heide, 2013) and therapeutic impact (Omer, 1992). Additionally, we found an increase in immediacy skills (Hill, 2004) that help therapists feel more free, intuitive and challenged during their clinical work.
Our supervision will require you to read this clinical and improvisational literature, as well to bring yourself to the here-and-now in the session. We will together find the right balance for our “dance”.
If you come, I will be honored to help find and refine your therapist self.
Sessions are conducted online or in the clinic in Kfar Saba or Jerusalem, and run between an hour to 1.5 hours.
