Supervision details

Since 2015 I have been working with clinicians from a variety of orientations: person-centred, art psychotherapy, transactional analysis, and psychodynamic. I prefer a collegial and democratic approach to supervision. I believe in supporting supervisees to develop their own authority and way of work that feels true to who they are.  I have experience working with individuals and groups in a variety of settings, including NHS, NGOs, training institutes, and private practice. I have worked as an assessor and have been an examiner on viva exams.

I have written academic papers and delivered workshops on various psychotherapy issues. I like to share ideas, experiences, and clinical stories and reflect on issues I have grappled with in private practice: the experience of being silenced in the room, the neurobiological processes of stress, working with groups, conducting assessments, and surviving a client's suicide.

I am deeply committed to providing evidence that what I do works, and furthering knowledge in the field of psychotherapy. I conduct clinical research using pragmatic case study methodology and the hermeneutic single-case efficacy study. I am very interested in working with clinicians who want to develop an ethical evidence-based practice. I am available to discuss a wide range of psychotherapy issues such as: dual diagnosis working with clients with mood and personality disorders, psychosomatic disorders (hysteria), attachment disorders processing distressing/disturbing emotional response to a client's erotic transference assessing suicide risk, and working with suicidal clients recovering after a client's suicide dealing with professional complaints  ethics  the myths of psychotherapy burnout and self-care academic writing  case study research auto-ethnography qualitative research neuroscience

I offer face-to-face, telephone, and Skype supervision.
