I see supervision as an essential part of a practitioner’s healthy work life. It is a place where we can bring in our human-ness as practitioners, to develop and grow and explore our own personal learning edges.
My personal approach to supervision is based on psychodynamic, transpersonal and humanistic perspectives and I enjoy working with people in an embodied, relational way.
As well as being a UKCP-accredited Core Process Psychotherapist with an MA in Psychotherapy, I have a Certificate in Mindfulness-based Supervision, recognised by the Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College (HIPC) of UKCP. I am also on the Association of Core Process Psychotherapists’ (ACPP) and HIPC’s directories as a Recognised Training Supervisor (RTS).
As a psychotherapist and supervisor in private practice, I am familiar with the various practicalities, legal necessities and ethical considerations involved with running a successful practice and the importance of holding appropriate boundaries and resourcing ourselves as practitioners.
My work in the charity sector has exposed me to a variety of therapeutic approaches and also introduced me to some of the issues, opportunities and challenges inherent in organisational development, partnership working and the provision of community mental health services.
I am continually updating and reflecting upon ways to enrich my work, both through my own personal development and work experience as well as doing additional continuing professional development. I am particularly interested in the impact of birth processes (including trauma) on personality development and have done a significant amount of further training and research in this area. Further information about my background, work experience and additional training can be found here.
My rate is £60/hour although I also offer a limited number of spaces at a reduced cost.
