I am a qualified supervisor, holding a Post-graduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision. Currently a clinical supervisor for groups of psychodynamic counselling trainees and qualified counsellors at The Counselling Foundation, St Albans, I also have experience of supervising practitioners in private practice, and of supervising counsellors working in a student counselling service within a university.
I became interested in a psychodynamic way of understanding emotional distress during the earlier part of my careers, when I worked in a number of Community Mental Health Teams, supporting individuals with complex mental health needs and supervising mental health social workers. Through working in these settings, I also gained substantial understanding and experience of risk assessment, and a good knowledge of the local mental health services in Hertfordshire.
Having worked in a variety of emotional wellbeing settings, and lectured at the University of Hertfordshire on a number of therapeutic modalities, I enjoy supervising practitioners from different therapeutic backgrounds - including integrative as well as psychodynamic.
Please get in touch if you would like to arrange an initial meeting to talk about the possibility of receiving supervision with me.
My approach to supervision is to tailor support to the individual level at which you are working (whether you are newer to counselling/psychotherapy or a more experienced practitioner). I see supervision as a collaborative, creative enterprise, and a space in which we can look inwards as well as outwards, so as to be in the best position to be able to offer our clients an ethically sensitive and emotionally containing experience.
Fee: £50 - £60, (depending on time of day and frequency of supervision).
I am currently offering supervision only by video or phone (due to the Covid 19 situation).
