Supervision details

The supervision I offer involves a mixture of case discussion, theory, ethics and the personal experience of the supervisee. I see supervision as a co-created enterprise where we negotiate the content of the space together.

I have a private therapy and supervision practice in Muswell Hill, London and in Somerset, near Street, and also work online 

I am an Integrative Supervisor and specialise in the supervision of therapeutic work with young people.  In 2019 I qualified with a Diploma in Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychotherapy and Counselling Supervision from Terapia, North London.  I use an integrative perspective which includes the major approaches to child and adolescent psychotherapy and counselling. I also supervise therapists working with adults.

I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist providing support for young people, families, couples and adults, as well as working as a Supervisor.  I have worked with many people struggling with anxiety, depression and relationship issues. My work is informed by Psychoanalysis, Attachment Theory and Mindfulness. I have over 13 years of experience working in infant, primary and secondary schools as a school counsellor and play therapist. From 2018 - 2020 I was Lecturer on the Therapy courses at the University of Greenwich and wrote our Ecotherapy unit.

The integrative approach I use in supervision has at its foundation my training in psychodynamic counselling. I provide a safe space for you to express your thoughts and explore feelings and thoughts about your work openly and believe that the development of a trusting relationship between us is central to the work. I offer the opportunity to apply Mindfulness to supervision, which can help you accept and manage how you are feeling about your work in a realistic way. Mindfulness fosters peacefulness, kindness and creativity in one’s approach to therapy.

I offer 50-minute, 60-minute or 90-minute sessions, weekly, fortnightly or monthly, according to your requirements.

If you would like to start to explore the possibility of supervision, please get in touch. 

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
