Supervision details

I undertook a supervisors training at the Tavistock clinic. I now work as a therapist and supervisor both in my roles as Psychotherapist and modality lead within the NHS as well as in Private practice.

Accordingly, I am well versed in the challenges of working in both settings as well as with the complexities of working across multiple contexts.

I will take a relational, person centred approach to supervision, having trained both psychodynamically and systemically this will inform my supervisory practice. I believe in addressing power in the supervisory relationship as well as in the client work and will be looking at how we collaborate and make a relationship together. I would hope that we will be transparent together in the process we undertake with the ability to reflect on our backgrounds together both in terms of how that affects our relationship and our work but also in how this impacts your clinical work.
