I have a diploma in Supervision from Re.Vision Centre for Integrative Psychosynthisis (2011).
I support therapists from a variety of trainings and modalities. Both my psychotherapy and
supervision practice combine transpersonal, psychodynamic, humanistic, gestalt and other influences.
I have experience of working with people from a broad range of backgrounds and cultures.
I support therapists just finishing or recently qualified as well as those more established and experienced. If you would like support in your private practice work or in setting one up I offer this. I have assisted counsellors with achieving their BACP accreditation. I also support those working within the voluntary sector and the NHS, this can be with client work and also for managers to have a space to think about staff dynamics and team relationships. I have experience as a group supervisor on a counselling training, with work teams and for groups of therapists in private practice who appreciate support from a facilitator.
I give considerable attention to counter-transference responses and to the relationship. I endeavour to be respectful and sensitive but also to stretch your comfort zones and enable your
learning. My approach is one that starts from a position of 'there is nothing wrong with the client'.
I will also focus on when client, or therapist, may feel a desire to get around feelings or rise above
certain issues where it might be more appropriate to drop further deeply into them. This can feel
very uncomfortable and I would wish to support you here and in other areas where you hit your
learning 'edge'. I have a particular interest in mind/body and identity issues as well as broad
experience and interest in many aspects of the therapeutic journey e.g. working with the inner
critic and the wounded child, loss of meaning, being in transition, working outdoors and with spirituality and sexuality.
I also offer supervision outdoors. Sometimes going outdoors can add a different perspective. Please see Wild Therapy page for more information.
