Having had a total of 14 supervisors over the years, I have more experience as a supervisee than a supervisor. This has taught me about the deficits that can be felt in supervision, and has contributed to my choice to work as a relational supervisor, which operates in a gestalt working towards personal growth.
I chose to train in Relational Supervision, for which I have a certificate, and my psychotherapeutic specialism in relational trauma and childhood abuse means that the function and quality of our connection is important, for which I use both person centred and psychodynamic perspectives.
I am supervising at two organisations which supply counselling to schools in Hertfordshire. My supervisees work both with children and adults. I supervise individual practitioners too who work only with adults.
As an art therapist, I offer art materials to enable the holding and exploration of what are often hidden aspects of experience within a given situation.
I have an ambition to supervise small groups of counsellors, psychotherapists and art therapists. A supervision group counteracts the isolation which often comes with being a therapist. Further, being more fully witnessed and known in your practice with colleagues fertilises the ground supporting your personal and professional development.
If you think you and your practice might benefit from my support, please get in touch.
