My Role As Supervisor:

I believe the role of a supervisor is to provide a safe, reflective and non-judgemental space for you to explore your practice.  I bring to the supervision role many years of clinical experience; I have worked with a wide range of clients from diverse backgrounds and cultures who present with differing emotional issues from complex, chronic mental health problems where risk is an issue, to more everyday anxiety and low level depression.

As a psychodynamic psychotherapist, I encourage a curiosity in supervision with the exploration of the unconscious, the defenses at play and the transference and countertransference processes.  I promote best practice where professional standards are maintained and the client is always at the heart of the work.

Alongside my extensive clinical experience and a supervisory role at the counselling service with Birkbeck, University of London, I have professional development training in supervision skills with the British Psychotherapy Foundation.

About me; My Training, Experience and Approach:

I am an accredited member of the BCAP and hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from Birkbeck, University of London.  I am the owner of, "City of London Psychotherapy", my private practice based in Central London (www.citylondonpsychotherapy).  Alongside my client work, I provide psychodynamic supervision for medium to longer term work and have an additional specialism gained in the higher education sector working with both young people and adults in a short-term modality.

I have been a Guest Lecturer at Birkbeck, University of London since 2015 running workshops on 'short-term psychodynamic work' for trainee psychotherapists on the MSc course.

As mentioned, I have professional development training in supervision skills from the British Psychotherapy Foundation and prior to being a therapist, had a long career in communications and public affairs in various management roles across the corporate and not-for-profit sectors.  A unique aspect of the MSc course I undertook was the training in individual, group and organisational processes and dynamics which also informs my therapeutic approach - in particular in relation to any work issues client's may bring.

Locations and Cost:

I offer two locations for supervision: NW6 (close to Thameslink/London Overground/Jubilee line) and EC1A (close to City Thameslink/ Farringdon and Chancery Lane tubes).

To discuss your supervision needs please do contact me by phone or email with a view to setting up an initial meeting. I offer concessionary rates for Associates/Trainees (sliding scale from £45).
