Group Clinical Supervision in couple counselling:

Integrating experiential approaches into Your Practice


A Unique Opportunity

EMCC is pleased to offer this unique opportunity for counselling professionals to reinforce your knowledge and skills in engaging couples from an experiential lens.

In a safe and secure group setting, you will be able to review a recording of your own counselling session and practise specific elements of the Gottman Method with an experienced clinical supervisor and Level 3 Gottman practitioner.


The Clinical Supervisor



The group supervision will be led by Mr Joachim Lee (PBM), Principal Psychotherapist of EMCC with over 20 years of clinical experience. He has studied with and received training from some of the top Master Therapists, including Dr John Gottman himself, and Ms Cloe Madanes, originator of the Strategic Family Therapy Approach.

Joachim is a Singapore Association for Counselling (SAC) Clinical Supervisor, a member of its Clinical Supervision Board and Chair of the Community Counsellors Sub-Committee.
