I have been a clinical supervisor since 1977 and greatly enjoy supervising students and colleagues of all theoretical orientations on any issue they bring to sessions. I see supervision as a collaborative and creative relationship where both parties engage in a mutual learning process. I am on the UKCP Register of Recommended Psychoanalytic supervisors.
I am experienced in brief psychotherapy as well as intensive ongoing work and knowledgeable about group processes,organisational issues, ethical issues and procedures.
In 2009 I designed and set up The Guild of Psychotherapists' Pluralist Supervision Course for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists and ran it for 3 years. Since this course prepares its graduates to join supervision registers I can help and support supervisees who are moving in this direction.
I am particularly interested in the way cultural inequalities such as those of gender, sexual orientation, race and class are structured into our minds and bodies and how these complex interactions emerge within the therapeutic relationship. I have published many books and papers on these topics.
As a member of The Guild of Psychotherapists Training Committee from 1990-2008 I was - and remain - actively involved in teaching and supervising psychoanalytic trainees.
