Supervision & Groups
I offer clinical supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists working in private practice, and Reflective Practice groups to organisations.
If you are interested in discussing either of these, please feel free to get in touch.
While my training is in psychodynamic psychotherapy and I practice in this modality, I am interested in supervising both psychodynamic psychotherapists, and therapists trained in other disciplines. I believe that different trainings can complement each other, and make for fruitful supervision.
I see supervision as a means of helping the therapist to develop their understanding of their client work, as well as to foster their particular development as a therapist.
Reflective Practice & Staff Groups
I facilitate Reflective Practice groups for staff within organisations, or other such groups organisations feel would be helpful. I have facilitated such groups within forensic services and have worked with staff from the London Ambulance Service, and have a Diploma in Reflective Practice in Organisations.
Organisations often find that an external facilitator can help teams attend to difficult dynamics between colleagues, perhaps when things aren't working well; or in services which work with complex or high-risk cases, where the psychological impact on staff can be high. Reflective groups can help improve communication within teams and reduce the destructive potential of conflict and mistrust, as well as increase resilience and the capacity to work safely in high-pressure environments.
Such groups can be long- or short-term, according to the service's needs. If you are interested in the possibility of arranging such groups, please feel free to contact me.
