I see good supervision as an essential part of a practitioner’s healthy work life. Most importantly, 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. I enjoy working with people in an embodied, relational way. I am also 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.
I have a Certificate in Mindfulness-based Supervision, a UKCP-recognised supervision qualification run by OPAL in Bath. The training is informed by mindfulness practice as well as contemporary supervision theory.
As well as being a UKCP-accredited Core Process Psychotherapist with an MA in Psychotherapy, I am also on the Association of Core Process Psychotherapists’ (ACPP) and Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College’s (HIPC) 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, as well as 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. Further information about my background, work experience and additional training can be found here.
My full rate is £55/hour although I also offer a limited number of spaces at a reduced cost.
