One of my biggest passions as a psychologist is supervision; I love sharing my knowledge and experience with other therapists. Having trained as both a clinical psychologist and a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, I’m very interested in the space in-between those professions, and particularly how psychologists learn how to think and practise analytically. I’ve worked as a lecturer, supervisor and examiner in both clinical and counselling psychology training programmes since I qualified as a psychologist, so I’m very well equipped to guide that transition both in training and beyond. I also supervise and provide clinical tuition to psychoanalysts in training.
Individual supervision is available in London EC4Y and Surbiton KT6 or remotely via Skype or Zoom. My fee is £85 per session for qualified practitioners and £65 per session for trainees.
I also run work discussion groups for trainee psychologists and supervision groups for qualified psychologists, where the aim is to think about how psychoanalytic ideas can be applied to your ongoing clinical work. The space is informal and focused on trying out ideas, playing with concepts and understanding better the relationship between you and your clients. Just like therapy, learning to think and work psychoanalytically is all about making mistakes, feeling anxious, trying things out, making a mess, having fun, and breaking the rules. We will allow ourselves to do all these things and more in these groups! We will learn to enjoy tolerating uncertainty, taking risks, and feeling out of our comfort zone – just as we expect our clients to do. If you have friends or colleagues and have particular requirements, I’ll be happy to create a bespoke group for you.
