I have an Advanced Diploma in Counselling Supervision which was accredited by the National Counselling Society. I have worked with therapists, body workers and artists who use their art form with community groups.
My experience of working as a therapist within: the third sector, educational settings and the NHS has given me an insight into organisational racism and abuse, and how to understand systemically how these institutions can re-traumatise both the clients and multi-disciplinary practitioners.
I adopt an intersectional approach, which involves more intentional exploration of the ways systemic privileges based on race, class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, religion, and other aspects of identity affect the client, the therapist, and the therapeutic relationship.
Further training has included:
- Body Psychotherapy / Movement and the Body in Supervision
- Racism and white privillege with Isha Mckenzie-Mavinga, Resmaa Menakem, Rae Johnson and ongoing involvement with the Radical Therapy Network
