Supervision details

I am primarily a relationally informed and nature-based clinician and supervisor, being trained in Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Taking Therapy Outdoors. In addition, much of my work is informed by third-wave CBT approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy.

I am passionate about using creative and experiential approaches to support people with their mental health and wellbeing needs, indirectly through the supervision of those working therapeutically with them. I support my supervisees in developing confidence in delivering integrated psychological therapy to meet the holistic and individual needs of the people they are working with. 

There is a growing body of evidence relating to the psychological and physical benefits of nature and the value of involving nature as a co-therapist and co-supervisor. Taking supervision outdoors or involving nature in the process, can be restorative and invigorating for clinicians.

I can offer supervision in a variety of settings including in person in my woodland garden clinic, outdoors in nature and online via zoom.
