The supervision I provide is humanistic and integrative in style. I bring to a supervisee the knowledge and experiences of all my areas of interest and differing perspectives within a safe, comfortable, supportive and confidential environment. These areas of interest include Transactional Analysis, trauma, body and somatic orientated psychotherapy.
I have many years experience working with different people from all walks of life and have worked within different clinical settings supporting a broad range of psychological and emotional issues. In addition, I have experience in providing consultancy for child care providers whose support staff work with young people presenting with severe behavioural and psychological issues.
My main aim as a supervisor is to ensure that those who come to me for supervision are addressing the needs of their clients as well as facilitating and supporting them in their professional development. I work collaboratively with my supervisees guiding, informing and supporting them to enhance awareness and their practice generally in a non judgemental environment.
I aim to facilitate, support and encourage supervisees that work with me to reflect on their work. When useful I maintain an observing eye on transference and how it is played out within the different relationships of the therapy process. Supervisees that have not had that visibility to transference within their training report finding this of great value to them. I do at times when appropriate provide information and direction in the interest of safe practice and the well-being of my supervisees and their clients. I fully support the continuing development of self awareness within supervision sessions.
I work with Supervisee’s face to face or via Skype or other similar online resource. Through these Covid times all work is currently online
I charge £50 - £80 per hour on a sliding scale. I offer concessionary fees for those still in training or those whose case loads come from their work in the voluntary sector.
Group supervision on request.
I have a Clinical Supervision Diploma. I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist, Certified Transactional Analyst. I have been working in a supervisory capacity since 2007.
