The practice of psychotherapy continues to be the backbone of my professional life and underscores and informs everything else that I do. I have been working in this field for more than two decades with experience in schools, further and higher education, clinical training, corporate consultation, professional development, and private practice. As the director of Stillpoint Spaces, I am consistently active in the field of psychotherapy internationally, driving innovation while ensuring quality.
My private practice is located out of Stillpoint Spaces London where I work both face to face and remotely. Unfortunately I am not taking on any new clients at this time.
Supervision helps practitioners to keep their feet on the ground enabling them to be better counsellors and psychotherapists. It does this by providing a supportive environment through which to understand our clients’ needs by honestly exploring and working through issues that come up within the therapeutic relationship.
As an integrative psychotherapist and supervisor I am well placed to supervise the work of counsellors and psychotherapists from a number of different modalities. My approach is not dogmatic, rather like my own work, I use a variety of different approaches to understand the therapeutic relationship that has developed between you and your client.
The supervisory relationship needs to be a safe and non-judgmental place in which to evaluate your practice. It is my aim to provide such a space to explore your own material in relation to your client work, and to encourage autonomy and responsibility in your practice. I am deeply informed by relational psychoanalysis in both psychotherapy and supervision, and it is the theoretical model underpinning how I understand therapeutic relationships.
Unfortunately I am not taking on any new supervisees at this time.
In recent years I have come to see that technology and social media use can also affect the therapeutic relationship and have found it necessary to create a digital policy. I ask all my clients and supervisees to read my digital policy when they start therapy. This policy is also intended to be freely used, copied, and amended by other professionals who would like to develop their own.
