I currently have one low cost space for an individual or group of qualified or trainee psychotherapists, counsellors or counselling psychologists.

Supervision can be in person in central London or via Skype.

I am an Integrative Supervisor and can offer low cost supervision across modalities and levels of experience. My clinical experience spans working as a clinician and assessor across a number of contexts including several years in NHS secondary care working with borderline personality disorder. I now work fully in private practise in central London. I am currently completing my training as a UKCP clinical supervisor at the Minster Centre and am offering one low cost place to a training or qualified psychotherapist, counsellor or counselling psychologist.

I provide a supportive, open, good humored and non-judgmental space for supervisees to develop their unique style of practise and ethical stance, and where problems and errors are appreciated as the fascinating learning opportunities that they are.

As a supervisor I help supervisees grow and develop their own capacity to detect, understand and use their client's shifting reflective or mentalising abilities and the complex relational dynamics at play across their client's life, the therapeutic relationship and supervisory environment. I encourage supervisees to critically appraise these dynamics in light of the cultural (race, ethnicity, faith, sexuality, gender, class, disability etc) differences to help get as close as possible to their client's lived experience and build a deeper more authentic relationship with more sensitive and effective interventions.

I find that containing and managing more challenging work and thus attracting and keeping more complex clients is underpinned by a confident ethical stance and assessment of risk, and I help and encourage supervisees to develop a reflective and informed ethical position in supervision.

Our clinical contexts are an important component of our work, and I understand the often quite difficult added pressures of working in NHS, organisational, training, online and private practise environments. I aim to be emotionally and practically supportive to supervisees in creating greater resilience and proactivity in thriving (and often just surviving!) in the face of these challenges.

My broad clinical experience across more serious mental health problems means that supervisees can feel safe bringing the more challenging issues to supervision to which, when required I am happy to offer more directive, technical and educative help. I draw on a range of techniques and perspectives from attachment, psychodynamic, existential, cognitive analytic therapy, mentalisation based therapy, contemporary trauma treatment, and when required CBT modalities. I also occasionally recommend CPD, books and articles that supervisees may find helpful in growing their unique skills base, as well as offering practical advice in growing their profile and practise.

For further information, please do get in touch.
