Supervision details

I completed PG Diploma in Supervision in July 2023. I am currently taking on supervisees both for individual and group supervision.

I completed an MSc in Psychotherapy & Counselling at University of Roehampton in 2015 and followed this with their Advanced Practitioner Programme. Since 2016 I work both in private practice and manage a group programme for Stand Alone, a charity that supports people who are estranged from family. 

My experience of providing support and reflective practice to individuals and groups within the charity sector inform my skills as a supervisor. My team say that I am a thoughtful, creative and reflective practitioner who helps others to think and make sense of their work in a holistic way. I take a phenomenological approach to my therapeutic work and am informed by psychoanalytic and existential ideas.
