Clinical Supervision

I supervise therapists from a variety of modalities and training backgrounds, supporting their clinical work by encouraging creative reflection, exploring transference issues and, where appropriate, giving candid advice regarding concrete clinical challenges. I work with both trainees and the newly qualified, as well as more experienced practitioners.
