Wellbeing and case supervision
Training and workshops
I offer trauma informed supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists working primarly within the framework of the Seven-eyed model. EMDR trained and experienced in supervising professionals working with complex developmental trauma, I take a collaborative approach, inviting deep exploration and creativity in our work together.
I have a special interest in working with therapists who are new to private practice. I believe that there is limited support available to some really great counsellors/psychotherapists starting out in practice outside of an agency or employment setting and sadly, many feel like they should avoid taking the leap into this enriching way of working due to lack of knowledge and often, confidence.
As well as supervising clinical casework, I offer a unique blend of mentoring and coaching to provide new therapists in private practice a clear pathway to building a successful business, within ethical and professional boundaries.
I am currently formalising my experience and learning of supervision with the leading experts in this field, Robin Shohet and Joan Wilmot, co founders of the Seven-Eyed model by undertaking their renowned Certificate in Supervision.

Group supervision offers a hive mind of different perspectives, exploration and reflection as well as opportunity for immediacy within the safety of an ethically and professional facilitated group. For therapists, our work can be isolating and many of us relish the prospect of connecting and exploring our work with other professionals in our field.
I run a regular group supervision for therapists new to private practice, which is hugely beneficial in developing confidence, sharing strategies and interventions and creating sustainable and successful practices.

I really enjoy working as a mentor to new therapists starting up or early in their private practice journey.
When I finished my counselling training remember feeling completely overwhelmed about which direction I should take my therapy work - I felt drawn to working in private practice but also really fearful incase I wasn't good enough.
When we train as therapists, we are told that we must wait for a certain period of time before embarking on a private practice venture, either that or take another diploma to equip us with the skills needed to work in this type of setting.
I remember feeling frustrated, I knew after working within various agency settings that I was ready to start my practice and committed wholeheartedly to working within the boundaries of my level of knowledge and expertise at the time but it still felt like I would be looked upon with disproval for taking the leap too early.
I do believe that it is so important that you set up your own practice only when you have acquired the knowledge and skills to do so competently and ethically but I also think that we all have our different levels of comfort, confidence and support to enable us to do this when the time feels right, rather than being led by the prescriptive two year timescale.
I was lucky to have a fantastic supervisor who also held my hand through the business side of setting up and sustaining a successful therapy practice, however I realise that not all supervisors are equipped with the knowledge to do this.
I provide a mentoring service that bridges the gap between clinical supervision, coaching and training, providing you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make a really successful and sustainable business.
My mentor programme covers all aspects of private practice from ethics, contracting, finances, niche, marketing, website, directories and social media to ethical dilemnas, interventions and overcoming imposter syndrome.

I currently provide supervision to professionals in the education and welfare sectors, working closely with staff who work with children who have experienced complex and developmental trauma. My work extends to a variety of roles, including safeguarding teams, head teachers and pastoral staff, all of whom benefit from robust supervision to reflect on and explore the impact of their work and indeed home life on their emotional wellbeing as well as providing a space for considering team dynamics and how to improve relationships within the workplace.
The supervision sessions also enable professionals to explore any blind spots and emotional triggers that may arise in their work as well as providing psychoeducation that can be integrated into their professional relationships.
