Conversations Creating Space: Psychology, Psychotherapy and Mindfulness


Specialist Supervision for Systemic Therapists, Psychologists and Counsellors

I am an AFT (Association of Family Therapy) registered supervisor with a proven track-record of providing a specialist service to fellow systemic therapists, psychologists and counsellors. Following 40 years in the NHS, I am highly experienced in delivering context-specific supervision for others working in health, social care, the voluntary sector and independent practice. My goal is to create a space where professionals can develop and refine their own unique approach that acknowledges the social, cultural and political context of their work and the issues faced by their clients. I am committed to anti- discriminatory practice and will work alongside you to build a sense of solidarity to resist injustice and discrimination based on appearance, disability, race, culture, sexuality and sexual orientation and other signifiers of difference.

For more information on my supervision service, along with psychology, psychotherapy, training and consultation in Kingston upon Thames and online, please get in touch.

What does supervision involve?

Supervision creates a supportive professional space where professionals can bring whatever feels important to them at the time. This can include personal and professional development issues, as well as specific issues arising with clients and families, or within the work context. Supervision can be delivered individually or on a group basis. We will work together, with kindness and humour to create a space for exploring ways forward that work for you.

I also provide consultation and training to professionals, work groups and services. Visit my Consultation and Training page to learn more.

Mindfulness for staff working in health, social care and the voluntary sector

Over the past two years of the pandemic staff working in the caring professions have been under unprecedented pressure leading to sickness, stress and burnout. Mindfulness can offer a space to nurture and refresh, bringing kindness and compassion into the process of caring. I am experienced in running a range of mindfulness groups for staff in the workplace.
