Supervision details

My qualifications
I’m a Counselling Psychologist, Play Therapist and Filial Therapist registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I’m a member of the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). I’m trained in several therapeutic modalities, including person-centred, existential-phenomenological, psychodynamic, CBT, and play therapy.

My academic experience
I currently work as a senior lecturer on the professional doctorate in counselling psychology at City, University of London. I previously worked as a lecturer and the placement coordinator on the professional doctorate in counselling psychology at Regent's University London and as an external examiner for courses at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. I’ve acted as a viva examiner for doctorates in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy at London Metropolitan University, Metanoia Institute, and Regent’s University London. I review journal articles for Counselling Psychology Quarterly and Counselling Psychology Review and collaborate with lecturers in science education at King’s College London to conduct research and training on promoting wellbeing. I have published sole author, first author, and joint-authored articles and chapters in peer-reviewed journals and edited volumes.
My clinical experience
I have over 11 years’ clinical experience with children, young people, adults, and older adults. I’ve worked in the NHS, including in specialised adult and child bereavement services; the charitable sector; and the educational sector. I run an established private practice in Central London, specialising in working with clients experiencing low self-esteem; questioning their identity, values and the meaning of (their) life; or loss, bereavement or the prospect of dying.

My practice
I offer individual academic supervision to people training or qualified in psychology-related and mental health-related subjects or roles. I specialise in working with trainee and qualified counselling psychologists. I also offer bespoke training and consultancy to organisations.

Where I work
I offer meetings in-person in Central London in rooms on Queen Victoria Street (near Mansion House and Bank), and online via Zoom. 
How we’ll work together
We’ll collaborate to tailor our way of working to best meet your needs, preferences, and goals. I encourage supervisees to reflect especially on how their self impacts and is impacted by their work and by our professional relationship. 

My fees for individual academic supervision are £70 per 50-minute meeting and £60 per hour for preparatory reading, commenting on written work, proofreading, and copyediting. To discuss fees for consultancy, please contact me.

Your next steps
If you think I might be a good professional match for you, please email me with any questions or comments you’d like me to respond to, or to arrange a free Zoom meeting, lasting up to 50 minutes, to explore the possibility of starting work together. I look forward to hearing from you. 

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
