ACT Supervision 1:2:1 and Group - Jim Lucas

Printer-friendly version

If you are interested in becoming a better ACT Therapist, then supervision is an essential and useful tool. My focus is to help you build your ACT skills in an experiential way with using role-play and feedback. I'll coach you through the challenges of helping people to develop psychological flexibility, whilst simultaneously supporting you to embody it yourself. The best way I know how to do this is to model it first, evoke it in you second and reinforce it third.

Individual and Group Supervision

I am based in Birmingham, UK and I can offer both individual and group supervision in-person and online using ZOOM. 

With 1:2:1 supervision, you get to focus completely on you, your client work and your relationships in the workplace. 

With group supervision, the focus is different. Made up of four participants (including me), we use a format similar to the Portland Model. We real-play or role-play challenging experiences to give the Skills-Builder the opportunity to practice and develop through experiential learning and real-time feedback. As a group, we coach the person in the Skills-Builder role to be flexible and try out different ways of intervening.

About me:

I've been practicing ACT since 2008 and I qualified as a CBT Therapist in 2005. I presently work in private practice running a psychology service called Openforwards with a small group of therapists. I teach and supervise trainees at University of Birmingham CBT Programme.  I have a PG Certificate in Clinical Supervision and I've trained in delivering online supervison. I am an ACBS Peer-Reviewed ACT Trainer.

ACT and CBS now defines the way I work and how I approach my own life. I believe in the power of science and language. I believe in authentic connecting with openness, courage and curiosity. These ways of being are my focus and my intention. They are reliable friends and mentors. My passion lies in supporting people who work in helping roles, sharing simple and accessible practices in self-care and reflective practices and encouraging workplaces to take better care of their employees.
