Supervision details

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

I am a qualified Integrative Supervisor, trained at Terapia, London, and specialise in the supervision of therapeutic work with children and adolescents.  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. I work with clients privately and have a therapy practice in North London but I currently only work online or on the phone.  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 their Ecotherapy unit for them.

I have worked with many people struggling with anxiety, depression and relationship issues. My work is informed by Psychoanalysis, Attachment Theory & Mindfulness.

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 an open and realistic way. Mindfulness fosters peacefulness, kindness and creativity in one’s approach to providing 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.
