I am a UKCP Registered Clinical Supervisor for psychological therapists. I currently supervise trainees, newly qualified and experienced psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists (clinical and counselling).
I work integratively and relationally, drawing on a number of theoretical perspectives and techniques to provide an additional reflective perspective on the supervisees clinical work; the relationship between them and their client, the client and their world, the cultural and environmental context, and of course the relationship with me. My aim as a supervisor is to help the supervisee broaden and/or fine tune their client and counter-transferential/inner process focus, to contact deeper meaning and greater creativity.
Essential to good supervision is an open and robust relationship. I offer a collegial, non-judgmental, warm and good-humoured professional relationship. I aim to balance support and positive feedback with sufficient challenge adjusted to the supervisee’s level of professional developmental, to enable them to grow their confidence and skills.
As a practicing psychotherapist, I am UKCP registered integrative adult individual psychotherapist currently working in private practice in London. I integrate thinking and techniques from MBT, CAT and trauma work into a contemporary attachment-based model of human development and pathology augmented with existential perspectives on meaning and identity. My previous work included NHS secondary care (mood and personality disorders) as an individual CAT psychotherapist and assessor and as part of an MDT as an MBT psychotherapist. I am currently also a group supervisor at Brent Bereavement Services as well as a Director of the International Attachment Network (IAN) an international non-profit established by colleagues of John Bowlby with the aim of popularising attachment theory thought and training in psychology and beyond.
