I am a qualified clinical supervisor (of individuals and groups), and am currently taking on new supervisees.
I run a very busy private practice as a therapist, and am keen to work with counsellors and psychotherapists looking for a private supervisor. I work with trainees, and have recently left work as a clinical supervisor for trainee therapy students. Working on the BACP accredited full training, I aim to ensure supervisees are supported; develop professionally and personally; and setting standards and ethics vital to our profession.
My education and training is wide and varied, and I have listed below just my relevant qualifications to therapeutic work (although am happy to share more about my other former professional and educational life to any supervisee, if interested):
I trained at the counselling and therapy training institutes of CPPD and Metanoia, and completed further specific training at The Grove. During my first degree at University, I first became interested in the mind; studying, philosophy and religious studies at King's College. More recently, further study in Mindfulness at the world famous MBCT pioneering centre at Oxford has bridged the gap between these two interests . I am an integrative counsellor, with a specialism in phenomenology and the inter-subjective experience, and mindfulness based psychotherapist. I am also a group facilitator, teacher and writer.
I have worked as a supervisor at The Healthy Living Centre (in conjunction with St, Thomas' and Guys hospital). This is a fantastic service for people with dementia, and I conducted clinical supervision of therapists, volunteers and paid staff at the project.
I welcome supervisees from any stage in their career. In addition to working with trainees, I am happy to support new-mid practitioners including those working towards BACP accred. and/or UKCP reg; which I can provide support for.
Finally, I welcome experienced supervisees, and offer both a supportive but also intellectually challenging space.
I value the freshness and uniqueness of each and every supervisee, and look forward to meeting anyone who is interested in setting up an initial meeting with me.
