I have been qualified for 20 year as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist. I trained with the Arbours Association, and was on their Training Committee for many years, latterly as Chair of Training. I have taught on a variety of other UKCP, BCP and BACP trainings, including AGIP and the Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis.
In addition to teaching and supervising trainees, I have extensive experience of supervising counsellors and therapists within my role as Consultant Psychotherapist and Clinical Lead for Personality Disorders within Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust. I have a particular interest in working creatively with more acute emotional distress, and have experience of working with the arts and arts therapists.
As well as individuals, I currently supervise teams within the NHS, Probation, Voluntary Sector and Criminal Justice system.
I greatly enjoy supervision, and look to foster a supportive, collaborative and respectful mutual exchange.
