I strive to provide a dynamic and creative space where any aspects of the work can be reviewed, processed and reflected on in a spirit of curiosity, learning, self-acceptance and development and with the client/ patients at heart.
I have a Diploma in Clinical Supervision, and I am a committee member of the Yorkshire Supervisors Forum. I have many years of experience supervising experienced and trainee counsellors, psychotherapists, body therapists, massage therapists, art therapists and teachers who work with adults.
I have experience supervising therapists who work with clients who present with different life challenges: anxiety, difficulties coping with day-to-day life, relationship challenges, bereavement, work difficulties, cultural issues, past and recent trauma including, sexual abuse and domestic violence.
My specialism is in working with trauma, including complex trauma. I have been supporting therapists who work with trauma: including sexual violence, domestic violence, trafficking, torture and long-term exploitations. I offer guidance for therapists who navigate the demands of legal issues such as pre-trial therapy, safeguarding and personal need for autonomy and self-governance.
I provide a supportive, respectful, and safe space for professionals and trainees to review their work. I work from an integrative perspective, focussing on the exploration of thoughts, feelings, theoretical ideas, body sensations and behaviours to support therapists in developing a better understanding of how to support clients/ patients in an ethical, meaningful, and creative way. In this supervisory relationship, I offer space to explore the impact the work has not only on clients but also on therapists, providing space to reflect, review and replenish.
