Supervision details

I am passionate about helping others to grow and know themselves better both personally and professionally. I have over 11 years’ experience as a counsellor. I specialise in working with complex trauma, abuse and dissociative disorders such as DID. I also have considerable experience working with clients with anxiety, depression, and ASD. I am psychodynamic trained and have a good understanding of other counselling models. I have worked in several settings which I can also draw on when we are working together.

In a supervisory relationship my focus is working collaboratively with you to explore what you bring to the session. It is a safe space to consider different perspectives for exploring issues which can bring insights, learning and growth impacting both you and your client. I can offer creative methods in supervision to explore therapeutic issues, using for example sand tray and small objects.

I have found Hawkins and Shohet’s seven-eyed model a useful and accessible model for exploring the therapeutic relationship and other influencing factors with the aim of facilitating both the supervisees and client’s capacity for change.

I am a COSCA trained supervisor currently only taking on qualified counsellors for supervision. I offer long and short-term supervision. Recognising that at times our existing supervisors may have sudden unplanned absence or extended leave of absence. I work both online and face to face in both Dunfermline and Dundee.
