I hold a diploma in counselling/psychotherapy supervision. I have broad experience as a supervisor, for 6 years until 2021 supervising up to 20 counsellors and therapists at ELMS (East London Mental Health Support) in Waltham Forest, as well as providing supervision privately on a one-to-one basis and currently on a weekly basis at the NHS bereavement service I lead. My training background is in integrative psychosynthesis, drawing on a range of approaches including Jungian analysis and psychodynamic, Gestalt and broadly humanistic orientations within a transpersonal context. I'm experienced in working with supervisees with a wide variety of orientations, but would want to discuss this with you at an introductory meeting to be sure we both feel happy at working together. As a supervisor, I also draw on my previous experience as a tutor, my passion for therapy and my conviction that we are all - your clients, you and I - in a constant state of learning, growth and change.
