Supervision details

What am I particularly good at as a supervisor?
Creating a learning opportunity—-space to think and reflect on the work you do with your clients. 
Keeping a space open for different possibilities. Help you to get clearer about what is going on between you and your client. 
I have worked with both trainees and experienced therapists, finding fulfilment in supporting their growth. 
I find supervisory group settings particularly rewarding.
Who is my ideal supervisee?
I enjoy supervising individuals who integrate different approaches or are drawn to a phenomenological perspective. With my background in existential-analysis, I can offer valuable insights into exploring the relational dynamics, unconscious processes, and existential or psychoanalytic aspects of therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions 
What type of therapy do you provide?
I trained as an existential-analytic psychotherapist which is an approach to talk therapy that can involve exploring childhood and family, and making meaning of what is happening that might be causing suffering.

What is your training?
I completed an MSc from University of Roehampton in Psychotherapy & Counselling in 2015. I also completed a PG Diploma in Supervision in 2023.

How much does it cost?
I charge £70 per session with a discounted rate for trainee therapists and others on a low income. Please ask if you need a low-cost rate.

Do you offer supervision?
Yes. I offer supervision for trainees and experienced therapists.
