Supervision details

I am an experienced trained supervisor and accredited therapist offering CBT supervision on weekday evenings.

About me:

I trained as a CBT therapist at Royal Holloway, University of London and have spent the past 12 years working as therapist, supervisor and team leader in NHS Talking Therapies Services. I currently split my time between the NHS and private practice offering CBT supervision to therapists and psychologists.

As well as being trained in CBT, I have a keen interest in incorporating compassion focused therapy (CFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness as needed for the client. I have supervised qualified and trainee therapists and practitioners who deliver Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I have received supervision training from the experts at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience; Royal Holloway;  University College London; Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre and the University of Exeter. I have also provided training for supervisors from diverse professional backgrounds including practitioners, CBT therapists, psychologists and service leads, while working at the University of Surrey on the Advanced Practice in Psychological Wellbeing Programme.

About you:
As a BABCP Accredited Therapist I provide CBT based supervision for professionals who fall into a number of different groups including but not limited to the following:

  • Trainee CBT Therapists who require supervision to reach the number of hours needed to apply for BABCP Accreditation.  This can include the marking of session recordings using the CTS-R.
  • Qualified CBT Therapists in private practice.
  • Qualified CBT Therapists in employment, invoices can be provided for your employer if they are funding your supervision.
  • Counsellors and psychotherapists who would like specialist CBT supervision to develop and refine their knowledge and skills.
  • Mental health professionals including clinical psychologists, nurses, social workers and occupational therapists who would like to apply CBT in their day to day practice.

Flexible arrangements can be made including weekly, fortnightly, and monthly supervision.  

Supervision is provided online using Zoom.

As a supervisor I use my experience to adapt to your needs and level of skill. I encourage reflection and action, while using a full range of learning approaches, ensuring you can reach your supervision goals and provide the best quality therapy to your patients.

I welcome diversity including people of all genders, sexualities, religions, ethnicities, body sizes, abilities and political values. During my time teaching at the University of Surrey I co-ordinated a module on anti-discriminatory practice. I am continually updating my knowledge in this area and aim to offer an inclusive approach.
