 Psychological supervision and consultation by video call

 Dr Alesia Moulton-Perkins, Clinical Psychologist and CBT therapist

  • Are you a CBT therapist wanting to maintain your specialist skills and seeking an accredited CBT supervisor?
  • Or perhaps you are interested in offering online therapy but don’t know where to start?

I offer specialist CBT supervision and supervision for therapists considering starting out in online therapy, or who are already experienced and want ongoing peer support. My clinical specialisms are Neurodevelopmental conditions (ASD, ADHD and Tourettes Syndrome) and Long Term Health Conditions. I currently supervise therapists working in an NHS IAPT service on their LTC clent work so am familar with the demands of the LTC training pathway. Supervision can be offered on a 1:1 or group basis, all via video conferencing. Screen sharing allows for demonstrating how to use the technology with clients, as well sharing CBT formulations you may have drawn during therapy.

CBT supervision

 I offer a restorative, reflective space in which to deepen your CBT practice. I am a fully accredited CBT practitioner with the British Association of Cognitive and Behavioural and Psychotherapies, and adhere to their good supervision guidelines. I encourage my supervisees to integrate regular audio recordings into their practice. Listening to audio clips in supervision promotes therapists’ micro-skills which, if combined with the Cognitive Therapy Rating Scale – Revised (CTS-R) (see Resources page to download it), can assist therapists seeking accreditation.

Consultation for working online

I can offer advice to psychologists, therapists and counsellors considering working online on professional issues such as ethical secure practice for online counselling. I have expertise in a number of online platforms and can offer my advice and insights into their pros and cons. I can also signpost you to other useful sources of free information, such as good local training courses, the top online counselling podcasts, private practice consultancy websites and marketing gurus, so you can grow your practice.

Paperwork templates

I provide templates of online therapy contracts, consent forms and GDPR agreements, as well as other resources to support online and face to face therapists via my online shop. If you are a supervisee of mine, ask me for a discount code.

How do I work?

While I specialise in CBT and third wave approaches (ACT, mindfulness and compassion-focused therapy), as a clinical psychologist I am also trained to doctoral level in psychodynamic and systemic approaches. I often integrate attachment theory and mentalization-based therapy approaches in my supervision. I work ethically and securely, and adhere to professional guidelines on telepsychology (APA), online counselling (BACP) and web-based internet therapy in general (ACTO). You can download these guidelines, and other useful materials on my Resources page.

Why pick me as your supervisor or consultant?

I really enjoy supervision and have had excellent feedback throughout my career. And I love technology! I have a passionate belief in the democratising nature of the internet, especially when it comes to providing psychological therapy and counselling to those who may otherwise not be able to access it.

I have extensive experience supervising pre- and post-registration CBT therapists, clinical psychologists, counselling psychologists and other health professionals. When I was a Senior Teaching Fellow at the University of Surrey, I regularly taught and marked CBT assignments, including formal evaluation of live therapy skills via audio recording. I conducted research and supervised trainee clinical psychologists on their own research into psychological therapies and mental health. I specialise in telemental health and telepsychology so have both academic, research and clinical expertise in this area. I currently supervise several CBT therapists working in NHS IAPT LTC services, as well as psychologists and therapists working in private practice. I am working towards accreditation with the BABCP as a supervisor and receive specialist metasupervision on my work from senior experts in the field.

I love teaching and training about online therapy. I regularly run a number of training events. You can see one example here which was for trainee clinical psychologists at the University of Surrey. Another day I ran with Helen Pote of Royal Hollway was held at the British Psychological Society offices on 7th September 2018. We had the Mental Elf recording podcasts here and a YouTube video here (you have to wait a minute until it comes on). You can read more about training events I have led on my Training page on this website.

As a scientist practtioner, the evidence base informs all my work. For more information about the research I have conducted have a look at my Researchgate profile here.  Amongst other projects, I have also conducted research into mentalization validating a self-report measure with Prof Fonagy at UCL.

Fees

I offer regular individual supervision sessions at £130 per hour*. One off consultations around setting up an online private practice or delivering online training events are £195 for 60 minutes*. If you require assistance with drawing up your client consent forms, policies and procedures I can provide you with a discount code to use in my online shop to purchase my paperwork packet. Group clinical supervision or consultation around setting up an online private practice can also be arranged at a discounted individual rate depending on numbers and duration.

"Thank you so much for taking me on. I can honestly say I would not be as far along my path in psychology without your help and encouragement. The opportunities and the ways you've challenged me through thinking differently from a different perspective over the last 11 months have allowed me to develop much more than I could imagine - thank you!"

 

“Thank you very much for your support and commitment during the last few months. Supervisions sessions with yourself have been really very valuable and have helped me gain confidence working with LTC presentations”  Prasann, CBT Therapist working with Long Term Conditions in IAPT

“I just wanted to say thank you for the guidance, opportunities and support you have given me ... Without your thoughtful supervision, encouragement and positive feedback I doubt I would be about to start training in a few weeks. I feel very lucky to have worked with you- you have taught me a lot about what it means to be a good manager, supervisor and clinical psychologist”

 

“I wanted to write this card to thank you for the support you have offered me over the past few years. You are by far the best manager I have ever had and this has greatly contributed to my positive attitude around work and the positive association I have working for the NHS…you have also helped me gain a much better understanding of working within the NHS, the power dynamics that often come into play and my personal impact on colleagues. You have helped me with looking at situations from a more well-rounded and structured place and enabled me to increase my self-reflective awareness….You have helped me through a lot of complex work situations which I have greatly appreciated…I wanted to acknowledge the significant part you have had in my professional development and the positive influence you have had on me. I hope over the past few years you have found supervising me both enjoyable and meaningful, as I have being supervised by, and learning from, you”
