I am a Creative Arts Psychotherapist (MA) and clinical supervisor (Dip Sup) with over 16 years’ experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families. My special interest as a practitioner and as a supervisor is the area of developmental and complex trauma. I also have extensive experience and specialized training working with children as a DDP informed creative practitioner.

My training and practice within supervision is unique in that it combines process and developmental theories of supervision with models adapted from creative arts therapies, attachment theory and neuroscience. It is a generic training that is applicable to those working with children, adolescents and adults. Much of my supervisor training focused on supervisors who work with adolescents and children and will focus exclusively on the developmental challenges and ethical dilemmas when working with younger age groups.  This particular model of support is a collaborative approach looking at the seven areas we are affected by when working with children and their wider context in order for safe and healthy practice.

As a clinical supervisor I am very open to working with qualified therapists and counsellors from different modalities, as well as trainees. I offer a range of experiential methods and creative techniques.  In addition to the clinical work, I can provide reflective practice sessions and consultations to other professionals, such as social workers and school staff, to support and enhance their work with complex cases and prevent burn out which is my specialist interest.
