As a member of the British Association for Psychodynamic/Psychoanalytic Supervison, I am trained in both psychodynamic and integrative supervision.  I have substantial experience in providing supervision and reflective practice to psychotherapists and teams in the NHS, in psychotherapy organisations and colleagues working in private practice. 


As a supervisor, I aim to:

  • Facilitate, encourage and inform your work with clients, supporting your professional development.
  • Explore the dynamics of the supervisory relationship and how this might inform you about your client work and any wider organisational context.
  • Enable and evaluate competent and ethical professional practice.
  • Maintain the reputation of the therapeutic profession by attending to standards, ethics and clinical governance.

(Adapted from 'Supervising and Being Supervised' by Wiener, Mizen & Duckham, Palgrave, Macmillan 2003).

I provide supervision for trainee and qualified colleagues and other helping professionals seeking a psychodynamic perspective to your work whatever your training. For counsellors and psychotherapists, the supervision I offer gives continuing experiential training and development in psychodynamic / psychoanalytic / Jungian analytic theory and practice.

Your needs as a practitioner will determine the type of supervision you receive. An initial consultation session will give us the opportunity to assess together what type of supervision may be most suitable. I offer both individual and group supervision for both individual and group therapy. I am a group analyst, and so I have extensive experience of working with groups of professionals seeking to learn together. 

What can I expect when I enquire about supervision?

When you contact me, I would usually arrange an initial business meeting within a week. There is no fee for this meeting. It may last up to 50 mins but sometimes can be briefer. This session provides an opportunity to explore whether we might work together. Arrangements such as availability, regular appointment times, affordable fees, frequency of sessions, payment arrangements, and other issues can be discussed at this point and at any subsequent point in future supervision. This initial session also offers an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about supervision.

We would decide together whether individual or group supervision is more appropriate. Factors affecting this would include your level of training, experience and work, and also the nature and intensity of your work with clients.
