I view supervision as an important relational process; an essential element for the well being of both therapist and client, as well as promoting the professional development and support of the practitioner.
I supervise therapists working with individual, couples, and groups of all kinds. I am especially interested in the way therapists develop their professional identity and enjoy supporting practitioners to achieve accreditation and to find their own unique style.
I currently offer both consultative and ongoing supervision at both my offices in Buxton and Stockport, and work with practitioners trained in a variety of modalities. I receive regular supervision on my supervisory and training practice.
In line with my interest and clinical experience in outdoor therapy, I also offer supervision in the outdoors for practitioners working with clients and group process in settings outside of the traditional therapy room. This work takes place in my outdoor therapy space in Buxton (see Outdoor Therapy Sessions page) & can involve working with the natural setting as both a facilitative backdrop and partner in the supervisory process.
I am a Provisional Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst (PTSTA), which means that I have been endorsed by EATA to provide supervision and training. I am listed in the UKCP Directory of Approved Supervisors and I have a Diploma in Creative Approaches to Supervision from the London Centre for Psychodrama.
I am a member of the staff at the The South Manchester Centre for Psychotherapy, where I deliver training days as part of the main Transactional Analysis psychotherapy training program. I also offer training in outdoor psychotherapy (see Outdoor Therapy Training & Events page).
My areas of special interest include ecopsychology, group work, script process and protocol, relational psychotherapy, and embodiment.
