With a wealth of clinical experience, a commitment to evidence-based practices, and a genuine desire to empower future therapists, I offer a unique and enriching supervision experience that fosters both personal and professional growth.
Background and Expertise:
I bring a decade of clinical experience , during which I have worked across various clinical settings, including private practice, community mental health centres, and educational institutions. My extensive background equips me with a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities that emerge in therapeutic practice. My expertise encompasses clinical concerns such as mood disorders, grief and loss, relationship issues, self-esteem challenges, living with neurodivergence, PTSD and trauma. My specialised interventions include cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and psychodynamic therapy, to name a few.
My approach to supervision is rooted in a supportive and collaborative framework. I believe in creating a safe and nurturing space where supervisees can openly discuss cases, explore ethical dilemmas, and enhance their clinical skills. I emphasise the importance of self-awareness, cultural competence, and ethical integrity as cornerstones of effective therapeutic practice. Together, we will delve into the nuances of the therapeutic relationship, case conceptualisation, treatment planning, and interventions tailored to client needs.
Areas of Focus:
As a clinical supervisor, I am dedicated to enhancing your competence in conducting assessments, formulating treatment plans, implementing evidence-based interventions, and measuring client progress. Moreover, I value cultivating your ability to reflect upon your practice and integrate ongoing learning into your professional journey.
Benefits of Supervision:
