All therapists, be they in training or qualified, accredited and experienced need supervision to maintain their professional registration and ensure that they are practicing appropriately. I offer the opportunity for supervision for experienced cognitive Behavioural psychotherapists either on a face to face or via web cam and internet. Michael Townend has extensive experience of supervision and is active not only as practitioner and supervisor but also carries out research in supervision.
