Karen Lawrence

Detailed Information

I am a qualified and experienced supervisor of 20 years with capacity to work at great relational depth both online, telephone and face-to-face, offering a layering of modalities such as relational, psychodynamic, systemic, attachment, trauma and addiction along with meta supervision models such as ‘The Seven-Eyed Supervisor’ (psychodynamic) and the ‘Domains of Action’ (systemic).

I became a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor in 2007, ATSAC Supervisor from 2010 and ACTO Senior Professional Supervisor, Level 3 in 2003.  I supervise individual, trainee, qualified CSBD counsellors and psychotherapists and other supervisors.

I am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and Supplementary Guidance Working Online (GPA 047), the ATSAC Values, Vision and Mission of Inclusivity, Care, Equality, Responsibility and Striving to see the highest standard in everything we say and do.  Reflecting and promoting the latest thinking in Sex Addiction forming part of these standards.  I uphold the ACTO Code of Ethics and provide confidentiality within all of the above guidelines.

Key elements of my practice are: –

  • Relational where the supervisory relationship between you and I are safety, trust, openness, courage and candour.
  • Supervision needs to be something we both enjoy, where transformational learning takes place.
  • I will be curious and interested in any ‘take-aways’ you get in each and every supervision session enabling a rich growing and developing practice.
  • I also enjoy Ethical Dilemmas in how we respond to different situations and the positions we take in the moment-to-moment decision making.
