“out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there” Rumi

I am registered both as a Child and Family Systemic Psychotherapist and as a Systemic Supervisor. I have completed an additional training in Family Law Supervision. I work as an academic trainer on the Msc Course at the Institute of Family Therapy and on a systemic IAPT training at Kings College London.

It has been my privilege to supervise individuals and groups of people for 13 years. I see supervision as a confidential space for the Supervisee to discuss professional or personal issues that arise in their professional practice with clients or colleagues. I have been supervised myself for the last 25 years as part of my professional registration and have found it a recursive and reflective relational process which has helped me manage work-life stressors in a pragmatic way.

My clinical practice is based in Sevenoaks and I supervise people from a range of professional backgrounds and at different stages of their career. Usually I prefer to see people face to face. I am happy to see people on line if more convenient.
Initially I qualified as a Solicitor and subsequently worked as a Probation Officer in London before settling on Family Therapy as my career for the last 25 years.

My goal is to listen deeply to what you have to say and provide a sounding board for the changes that you want to make.
