My aim is to offer a supervisory relationship that feels supportive, democratic and collaborative.
For me, working as a psychotherapist is a rich and deeply relational profession, so I tend to work this way with supervisees, also. I like to provide a space that explores and holds supervisees clients material, but also gives space to supervisees experience in the work and their wider process too.
I think it is vital for the supervisory relationship to feel comfortable and inviting, so therapists feel able to bring any part of their experience in their work they may wish to explore. I feel this is fundamental to our growth as therapists and also informs the healing potential of what can then happen for supervisees with their clients. I am also committed to holding a space that is mindful and sensitive to issues of power in supervision.
I enjoy working with people in the early stages of their career. Witnessing and supporting new therapists make their journey/transition into the profession is something I feel a privilege to be a part of.
My ultimate aim in being a supervisor is to offer a place where you can feel held and be able to thrive in what you do.
I offer both individual and group supervision depending on what your needs are.
