Maša Žvelc, PhD
Emotional and physiological regulation in psychotherapy supervision
Psychotherapists face their clients’ trauma and absorb emotional and physiological distress during psychotherapy sessions. Often, they cannot regulate these traumatic and dysregulated states and bring them to supervision. One of the vital aims of supervision is to transform dysregulated states into balanced states of mind with regulated emotions and physiology. Mindful awareness and self-compassion are significant processes which promote regulation. Emotional and physiological regulation improve the quality of supervision and psychotherapy practice, promote care for practitioners and prevent burn-out.
Maša Žvelc, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Primorska and a director of the Institute for integrative psychotherapy and counselling, Ljubljana. At the Institute, she has a psychotherapy and supervision practice and leads courses in integrative psychotherapy and supervision.
She is the co-author of two books, published by Routledge: Mindfulness and compassion in integrative supervision (2023), and Integrative psychotherapy: A mindfulness- and compassion-oriented approach (2021).
