After qualifying as a Therapist in 2002, many years since then have been spent working within the area of trauma, and specifically with the impact of:

  • Historic child sexual abuse (CSA)
  • Sexual assault
  • Domestic violence (DV) - working with the impact of DV on the individual as an adult and/or from childhood.

As a Supervisor, I have a particular interest in, and continue to support other therapists working in this area.  From my own experience as a therapist working with trauma, I have benefited from good, regular supervision, which has enabled me to work with survivors for more than 10 years - and continue to do so.  This experience informs the way I work with supervisees, paying particular attention to the issue of self-care, to prevent stress, burn-out and vicarious trauma.    

I currently work as a sub-contracted Supervisor, with an organisation in Derby that specialises in supporting survivors of abuse and sexual assault, but also work privately supervising individual therapists working in the field of trauma.

More generically, having worked within the NHS in short-term brief focused therapy for 6 years, and for a major Employee Assistance Provider (EAP), I can support therapists working in a brief focused way.  However, I can also support those involved in or interested in working more long-term, as my private practice is predominantly comprised of clients working in this way.

My approach:

In therapy, I trained and qualified as a Psychodynamic Counsellor/Therapist in 2002.  This continues to be my approach, however, prior to this my initial training was Person Centred.  In supervision, I pay particular attention, not just to what has been brought to supervision, i.e. presentation of the client/session content, but what might still be ‘carried’ (Hawkins and Shohet) by the therapist, both consciously and unconsciously into the supervision session.  Therefore, by being open to exploring the transference, counter-transference and parallel process in the supervision session, this helps us to have a deeper understanding of the work, not only between client-therapist but also between supervisee-supervisor.


Diploma in Supervision - Leeds Centre for Psychological Development 
Post- Graduate Diploma – currently working towards


I work mostly from my therapy room at home, but sometimes in other venues in Derbyshire.  Usually, I work face to face with individual therapists, but currently I am working remotely via video supervision sessions.

Rate for individual supervision:

£50-55 per supervisory hour 

I encourage potential Supervisees to pay for an initial Supervision session, so they can experience my way of working and decide if they would like to continue working with me.
