At heart person-centred in her trust in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship, she brings to her practice skills and insights from her psychology background and training in psycho-dynamic psychotherapies, systems approach to families and organisations, NLP, Mindfulness, Focusing, Imagery work, EFT, EMDR and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.

Supervision & training

Supervision can mean different things at different times for different people.  Its major purpose is empowerment of the supervisee through support, understanding, validation and information.  This has to be tempered by care for the welfare of the client and for maintaining 'professional' standards and ethics.  A beneficial supervisory relationship enhances the supervisee’s self-esteem and self-care and the development of their professional identity and their personal style.
