Having spent my 5 years of post-qualification experience working mostly with clients presenting with trauma related to childhood abuse, neglect and addiction from an integrative modality, I consider my "toolkit" to include:

  • Creativity in my approach to exploring aspects of client work with therapists using their imagination, metaphor and an overall "felt-sense" within the supervision
  • A comprehensive understanding of dissociation and dissociative identity disorders
  • Experience and training for working with parts/internal family systems approaches
  • A humanistic approach
  • An understanding of and curiosity for how the social systems that we live in impact us and our clients
  • Training in the neuroscience of how trauma affects the brain 
  • Experience of working within charities and alongside statutory organisations as well as creating my own private practice
  • A warm, empathic approach which I hope creates a relationship between myself and the therapist where growth, professional development and therapist self-care can flourish.

I am working towards completion of my Advanced Certificate in Supervision, which I will complete in January 2022.

Supervision fees are £45 per hour session, or £60 per hour and a half.
