Clinical Supervision


Hi! And welcome to my supervision page.

My first experiences of supervision have marked how I see this important aspect of our Private Practice.

I’ve had excellent supervisors in my B.A. in Guatemala – contemporary psychoanalytic for my work with adults, and cognitive-behavioural, behavioural, play therapy and psychometric testing for my work with young people and children.

My experiences of supervision in the UK have been varied, though mostly positive.


In all my years practising counselling and psychotherapy, I’ve learned to be assertive and “picky” when it comes to choosing my supervisors, and I encourage you to do the same.

The person you are working with should make you feel safe, comfortable and able to talk about the things you need to talk about – including possible mistakes or things you might have missed. This is what supervision is about!

My experience through the years of different supervisors, has allowed me to set a high standard of what I should be getting in my supervision, as well as what to offer my supervisees when they come for their sessions.


In the videos and blog posts below, you can read more about my supervision model and how I work.

Do send me any questions you might have, and I look forward to working with you as you grow in confidence when working on your private practice!



Online Supervision


Supervision is important, but sometimes we might be too busy to travel to supervision, or we might not have found someone in our local area that makes us feel safe and that provides what we are looking for in a supervision contract.

In these videos I present a few of the benefits of online supervision, and some solutions when you can’t travel for supervision, whether you are tight on time or any other reason…

How I work – A supervision model


These (14) videos describe the five supervision models that inform my supervision practice.

You can watch the ones where I’m speaking or the storyboard video version of the same.

If you’d like further information, you can read the blog posts below. I’ll also be creating more detailed courses, workshops, and coaching from these in the near future.
