I offer individual and group supervision for Psychotherapists and Counsellors. I supervise trainee therapists at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in London. My approach is to facilitate a collaborative space, which enables a creative exploration of our clients dilemmas, and the relationships which form between psychotherapist, client, organisation and supervisor.
How I see Supervision
I believe that Psychotherapy is primarily an oral tradition. While I appreciate the theoretical and the academic aspects of our profession, I have personally gained most of my expertise in the supportive and experiential space that supervision provides. It has been through supervisory relationships that I have developed my confidence and found my way to my own style of practising. It is through my ongoing supervisory arrangements that I develop and triangulate my work, whilst illuminating theory. Rather than see a supervisor as an “overseer”, I see one as a facilitator who helps unlock (perhaps unseen) stumbling blocks toward a supervisee’s practice development.
My hope as a supervisor is to help enable others to develop into the therapists they are (always) becoming, and through our shared work, to participate in the evolution of consciousness.
How I work
I am an Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapist and I work in a way which values both thinking and feeling, and a perspective which integrates mind/body/spirit. I practice in a relational way, which draws heavily on the felt sense. In this way, I see the psychological and the spiritual not as separate, but as a continuum. And that a mature, integrated and grounded spirituality is most available to an individuated psyche. In this sense, psychological work to resolve trauma and unearth the Self, is the core of spiritual development.
My work is informed by the Psychoanalytic perspectives (Jungian, Freudian), in particular Attachment theory; Internal Family Systems (Schwartz) and somatic/embodied approaches (Gendlin, Judith, Fisher).
I am particularly drawn to working with dissociated and disowned parts, resolving relational trauma, using symbols and dreams to access early life material. I have experience working with abuse and neglect, complex trauma and highly fragmented ego states. My current research interest areas are around ecopsychology, intersectionality, decolonisation, reflexive transcendence and the intergenerational and collective aspects of consciousness.
I work with individual supervisee’s on an adhoc or a contracted basis. I am also open to you forming a small supervision group to meet on a regular basis.
Individual session (50m) £70.
