I love supervision and have been working as a qualified supervisor for 7 years. My starting point is to offer a safe, creative space in which practitioners can freely explore and develop their own unique therapeutic styles and strengths.
Personally, I have mainly trained in person-centred / humanistic approaches, mindfulness and 3rd wave CBTs, and transpersonal psychology. I feel confident, however, that I can support a wide variety of practitioners to actualise their therapeutic potential, whatever their training background.
I have over 20 years of experience in the field of mental health, working with both adults and with children. I have worked as a school counsellor, with families, as an outreach worker in the community, as a volunteer in a therapeutic community, as a mindfulness teacher, and as a therapist in private practice.
I have a few chapters published, including one in the Sage Handbook of Counselling and Psychotherapy (2017).
I am currently a teacher on the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of Manchester and a director of Mindfulness for All, a non-profit community interest company.
