I have had the privilege of mentoring and supervising other counsellors to help facilitate their growth as practitioners and individuals for over 10 years. This is an important place to support both the client and the counsellor. It allows the space for the counsellor to explore and grow in the client/counsellor dynamic, to explore the clients presenting issues and presentation, as well as to consider their own responses to the client and what is happening in the session. It is a safe place to develop the counsellor in their practice as well as an individual.
I have over 20 years of counselling experience to draw on and specialise in working with complex trauma, abuse and dissociative disorder like DID. I am also experienced in working with anxiety, depression and addiction. I work as an integrative supervisor and draw from different modalities to inform my own counselling practice as well as those that I supervise. I often use creative resources in my supervision practice and will also work somatically when it's helpful.
I have written and deliver training to counsellors and psychotherapists on 'The Neurobiological Effects of Trauma', as well as delivering training on 'Working with Substance Use' and 'Safeguarding'.
