THE LONDON PRACTICE
Psychotherapy and Coaching
I offer relational supervision for therapist, coaches, anyone leading a team or working in a one-to-one supporting role, online via Zoom.
Supervision is an important support for your professional development and can help you grow your practice, expand your skills as well as ensure safety and well-being of both yourself and your clients.
Many therapists and coaches enjoy learning from a variety of approaches, and my supervision, while grounded in my Gestalt therapy training, also includes systemic thinking, influences from existential and spiritual practices as well as a focus on embodied experience.
Rather than from one fixed school of thought, my supervision approach is relational, which means the focus of our work will be on exploring and better making sense of what might be happening between you and your client, and how this is affected by the wider context for both of you. We will also apply the same lense to our supervision work together, aiming to find new possibilities where stuck or learn new things about yourself through these relationships.
While I have practiced as a therapist for over 10 years, I am only now completing my supervision training (run by Relational Change, which will be UKCP accredited). Therefore, I offer supervision on a pay-what-you-can-contribute basis during the year 2021. After that, the sessions will be charged at the same rate as my client work.
Previous experience leading/training groups
I worked for several years as a team leader at The Awareness Centre with the NHS IAPT, where I helped a team of over 25 therapists in their placements through to qualification.
I have several years of experience working as a coach for startup founders and people who want to make a business out of their passion, and have co-led groups of 40-50 people through career change and life change programmes at Escape the City as well as run creative workshops for children and adults myself.
While setting up and running The London Practice, and have informally helped newly qualified therapists in finding their style as a practitioner and their feet in starting out on their own.
