Supervision details

My approach is always grounded, non-judgemental and supportive.  I want supervisees to feel safe in their reflections.  My starting point is to ask what you need from me and from your supervision sessions.   I encourage and welcome feedback.  I qualified as a clinical psychologist in 1989 and since then I have acquired 25 years of NHS experience (having taken a career break when I had young children).   Since qualifying, I have always specialised in adult mental health.  I have worked in community mental health teams,  in multidisciplinary psychological therapies services and in Occupational Health settings.  I have worked across the range of severity and am experienced in working with complex trauma.  I have experience of a very broad range of presenting problems including all the common mental health problems, personality problems and eating disorders. I have a lot of experience offering supervision to a range of health professionals including clinical and counselling psychologists, counsellors and others.  I am an accredited cognitive behavioural psychotherapist.  I'm also an accredited EMDR psychotherapist  (I have a particular interest in attachment-focused approaches).  I am trained and experienced in compassion focused therapy and have delivered teaching sessions on this approach to doctoral students at the University of Hull.   I also draw on other third wave approaches such as acceptance and commitment therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy.  I have a growing interest in "parts" work and internal family systems therapy.
