About me and my therapy practice

Finding the right supervisor is vital for supporting reflective and effective practice. I have been a practising therapist for 25 years, a clinical supervisor for over 10 years and have a successful supervision practice retaining  many long term supervisees. I have extensive experience of supporting supervisees working in a variety of settings including  NHS, counselling services, education, children's residential services, eating disorders, adoption support services, sexual abuse and rape services, EAPs, prisons and private practice. I also have experience in providing supervision to students, clinical supervisors and to clinical and non-clinical staff teams.

 My approach is at the core person centred, as a Dramatherapist I can also incorporate creative arts into supervision and my training in CBT allows me to use cognitive, goal orientated, task focused elements if appropriate. I also have 25 years experience of clinical work including within statutory, voluntary, charity and educational settings which I can draw from to support supervisees within their practice. 

As well as providing supervision for general practice my specialist areas of work are children and young people, CSE, abuse, attachment, trauma and addiction.  As an adoptive mother I can offer professional and lived experience supervision to professionals working within adoption support.
