My approach to supervision is relational, embodied and creative. This means I work closely with what emerges in the supervision relationship (feelings, thoughts, responses in our dialogue) and am interested in your experience of your relationships with your clients. Developing awareness of these aspects of each of our experience, with the support of psychotherapy theory can provide a rich window through which to explore client work with curiosity and creativity.
My initial training is in Gestalt Therapy, and complimentary to that I bring a strong grounding in a range of psychotherapy theory. Alongside Gestalt Therapy theory, particular interests include attachment theory, developmental relational trauma, Jungian psychology and concepts of individuation, social and cultural structures and their impacts, intersubjectivity and dialogic relationships. I am also a yoga teacher and have a deep and longstanding commitment to embodiment and the resources, support and aliveness we can access through building our relationships with our bodies.
