I am an experienced UKCP registered supervisor, and was a TSM (Training and Supervising Member) of GPTI (Gestalt Psychotherapy Training Institute) for around 10 years. I enjoy supervising individuals, dyads and groups at all stages of development and from a range of therapeutic modalities. I supervise therapists and counsellors working in private practice as well as in agencies such as the PF Counselling Service, Mindspace and Addiction Counselling Inverness
I see supervision as a holding relationship in which we can flexibly explore the breadth of your professional life with attention to head, heart and soul. I come from a place of openness and enquiry I like to co-create collaborative supervisory relationships where we can look closely, kindly and honestly at your (and our) work. I see our supervisory relationship as centrally important to this process. I am sensitive to shame, anxiety and power dynamics, and enjoy celebrating what’s going well alongside bringing attention, rigour and support to more difficult areas. I am skilled at supporting the integration and embodiment of theory as well as working at the place where supervision and therapy meet.
If you are interested in supervision with me, please contact me for an initial session where we can explore the potential in our working relationship. Hour sessions normally cost £70.
‘When supervision provides a space in which stories and problems are seen as a gateway to a new dimension of reality, rather than merely issues which need solving, for me at that moment it becomes “passionate supervision”.’
