I am a BPS chartered and HCPC registered psychologist, able to offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists.
My approach to supervision is grounded in assimilative integration, informed by CBT, ACT, and psychodynamic modalities. My experience working in different settings, varying client groups, and also several modalities gives me the opportunity to work with you to tailor our supervision to your needs.
Having completed a number of post-graduate courses in counselling and psychology, I also have insight into the needs of trainees.
I have completed undergraduate, diploma, masters, and doctorate level research projects and have collaborated with other researchers.
My own research has looked into anxiety and differences in gender, experiences of bilingual expression, and decision-making.
I have collaborated with other researchers on aspects of methodology, analysis, literature searches, and write-ups, on issues relating to sports performance and anxiety, epistemological positions, instrumental and reactive violence, and postgraduate students’ experiences of mental health.
I am proficient and experienced in methodology, design, and analysis with knowledge in qualitative and quantitative research.
In the different positions I have held within the NHS, voluntary sector, and higher education settings, I have worked as a trainer and supervisor for over a decade. I have delivered training in conflict resolution, sensitive and difficult conversations, and aspects of mental health.
I have extensive experience delivering debriefing sessions after difficult and critical incidents for frontline staff. I continue to work as a trainer and supervisor for students in a higher education setting.
My volunteer experience (UK & Turkey) has involved working with charities delivering yoga for the mental and physical well-being of adults, as well as programmes offering education and socialisation for adolescents within forensic settings.
