I have over 20 years experience as a counselling and psychotherapy clinical supervisor and undertook a supervision course at the University of Sheffield. I have worked with trainees and very experienced professionals both in private practice and working within therapy organisations. My background is within the NHS as a manager and supervisor and in the private sector with Employee Assistance Programmes. I have experience of supervising work with women and specialise in working with trauma, relationships, stress and anxiety, depression, and diversity. My supervision approach is led by the requirements of my supervisees. I am supportive as well as challenging in order to encourage a creative and dynamic approach by my supervisees. The theoretical approach is important but I also encourage them to take a new view of their work and to learn from their clients.
