Clinical, Academic and Coaching Supervision

Dr Matthew Shorrock

ÖBVP & UKCP registered psychotherapist, Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered Applied Psychologist, & BPS Chartered Psychologist.

As Clinical Director at the Mind Institute, I supervise all supervision offered at the institute. Supervision services include:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Counselling psychology
  • Life coaching
  • Executive coaching
  • Organisational consultancy
  • Academic research

I would describe my supervisory style as humanistically orientated, grounded within a research-informed, integrative (pluralistic) framework. Supervision is specifically tailored to meet the needs of supervisees and their clients. My own (‘home-base’) core modalities, include transactional analysis, person-centred, CBT, ACT, and psychoanalytic.

I am very much interested in integrated approaches to supervision, that take a 360 degree approach in attending to the micro and meta-level experience of client, supervisee and supervisor.

Supervision models we like to use include the Pluralist Model (Cooper & McCleod, 2007), and also the Seven Eyed Model (Hawkins & Shohet, 2000). For instance, as with the latter model (developed by Shorrock, 2014) key areas addressed within supervision include:

Mode 1: Practice
Mode 2: Clinical / Coaching intervention
Mode 3: System and co-creative dance
Mode 4: Practitioner Counter Transference
Mode 5: Parallel Process
Mode 6: The Counter Transference for the Supervisor
Mode 7: The Wider Context – The Organisational mode
