Therapy at it's most basic description is an intentional conversation. A conversation that may seek to explore and understand underlying emotions and needs; to process difficult experiences or challenging situations; to highlight existing strengths and resources that may be useful in working towards your goals.
Building on the idea that the quality of our relationships impacts our mental health and wellbeing, Attachment theory also assumes that when we feel safely and securely connected and supported within our most significant relationship(s), we are more likely to thrive. Developing this kind of security and emotional connection is one of the main focuses of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), the approach Beth Ann uses when working with couples.
Clinical Supervision & Consultation
The relationship between Supervisee and Supervisor is equally important to that between Therapist and Client. Which is why Beth Ann believes the Attachment Theory lens and her passion for building meaningful connections is not only relevant but essential to this role.
One of the main purposes of clinical Psychotherapy Supervision is to support new and emerging Psychotherapists in developing their professional identity and skills; to fulfill requirements of education programs or professional regulatory colleges/associations. However established therapists will often seek supervision and/or consultation for various reasons as well.
Whether you are looking for a practicum placement to complete your education requirements; new to the profession and looking to fulfill your CRPO hours; or an established Psychotherapist wanting to enhance your professional development or consult on a challenging case - Beth Ann would be happy to connect with you to discuss a possible supervision/consultation relationship.
