Debby Monkhouse Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist Counselling and Supervision in Swanage, Purbeck, near Poole


I'm an experienced, qualified Clinical Supervisor. I offer supervision in a safe, accepting and developmental environment. I really enjoy working with both qualified and trainee Counsellors and CBT Therapists, supporting them to develop their Practice.

How I work
Supervision can be a restorative supportive space, a normative space to help align practice with theory and a formative space where knowledge and experience are shared in a way that is developmental and empowering. I work in a collegial way to support, share concerns and ideas and develop best practice. I have worked as a Trainer for many years and I understand how to break down concepts and processes to make them easier to grasp and work with. I support you to reflect, acknowledge your achievements and identify devlopmental steps, building supervision around Kolb's Learning Cycle: Experience, Reflection, Conceptualisation, Experimentation.

I have clinically supervised Counsellors and CBT Therapists in Private Practice since 2012, including CBT Therapists specialising in working with clients with long term physical health conditions.
I have clinically supervised Cognitive Behavioural Therapist Trainees at Southampton University since 2017. Prior to this I clinically supervised CBT Therapist Trainees at Canterbury Christ Church University 2011-14, where I was also an Examiner on the University's Postgraduate Diploma in CBT.
I clinically supervised Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners in the NHS 2011-13, and I clinically supervised Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner Trainees at University College London, 2012-13.
I was Honorary Secretary for the BABCP Supervision Special Interest Group for ten years, and I am currently on the Supervision Special Interest Group Committee as an ordinary member.

"I learned new skills in each session which I use with my clients and am now sharing with my own supervisees. Debby was professional but at the same time open and warm enough to allow me to feel free to discuss issues that bothered me. I can't thank her enough."
Nicola Shumba
"I enjoyed working with Debby and I became more confident integrating CBT into my work. I was able to help clients address chronic disabling beliefs, and I also learned how to adapt the PTSD model when working with clients with early traumatic experience."
TJ O'Connell
