I strongly believe that effective clinical supervision involves the provision of a safe, non-judgemental, values-led process, based on a trusting relationship between supervisor and supervisee. Whilst holding your client’s formulation at the forefront of our thinking, my hope is to support your ongoing personal and professional development and to support you to work in line with the values and principles that motivated you to become a therapist.

This can include, but is not limited to, providing reflective spaces and experiential learning to help you to understand your client and their difficulties, and ways in which you can help; helping you to explore the systemic and organisational factors that may be affecting the presenting issues; helping you to maintain safe clinical care that is of high standard and in line with best practice and national guidance; and providing you with support related to the emotional impact of your work.

I have undertaken further training in clinical supervision, including the University of Sheffield’s training for supervisors, and have formally provided clinical supervision for assistant and trainee clinical associate psychologists, nurses and trainee advanced clinical practitioners, as well as having provided group supervision across a number of mental health settings for clinicians from various different professional disciplines. My style of supervision is integrative and draws upon relational-based and systemic approaches, compassion-focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy. I offer both face to face and remote provisions for clinical supervision.
