I am a qualified integrative relational supervisor from the Metanoia Institute.
Since 2015 I have enjoyed providing both group and individual supervision for the counsellors at the Kingston Women’s Centre and Kingston Bereavement Service. For over 10 years I provided clinical supervision to counsellors specialising in addictions and domestic violence at the EACH Counselling & Support service. Alongside my agency work, I also provide private individual and group supervision to trainee’s and qualified professionals.
I use the ‘Seven-eyed Model’ of supervision, which takes a personal and social systems perspective and provides me with a valuable framework for examining the process of supervision. This approach is useful in providing a map that explores many dynamics from the range of finer/precise details to the impact of the wider context on our work. Meaning, whichever ‘eye’ we look through we will see a different facet of the whole.
In summary, my philosophy of supervision is a collaborative process of trust, open communication, playfulness (giving volume to our hunches and creativity), where professionals can create enhanced meaning and understanding to the clients world.
I have been developing and facilitating training courses for many years. Continued Professional Development is a vital aspect of our field. As a trainer I develop courses not just tailored towards counsellors in training and qualified therapists, but for other health care professionals in many settings.
Some of the 1 Day Workshops I deliver include:
- Substance Misuse Awareness
- The development and Facilitation of Group Work
- LGBTQ Awareness workshops
I am happy to develop bespoke trainings on request.
