In line with my clinical specialism in outdoor therapy, I have many years experience in supervising outdoor practitioners. My outdoor supervisory work extends the traditional supervisory process to include a live embodied process of working with a natural setting. This work is strongly influenced by bodywork and Amerta movement practice, as well as building on creative approaches to supervision.
My approach is especially suited to outdoor practitioners who wish to learn about incorporating the place in their practice rather than simply working with it as a backdrop to a traditional therapy process.
I work outside in Buxton.
I welcome requests for less frequent consultative supervision from outdoor practitioners who are in other geographical locations, including those living outside the UK. This is conducted via phone - where we can work together on the move in our respective outdoor spaces - or Zoom.
Supervision Qualifications & Experience
I am a Provisional Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst (PTSTA), which means that I have been endorsed by EATA to provide supervision and training. I have a Diploma in Creative Approaches to Supervision from the London Centre for Psychodrama.
I am a core member of the staff at Red Kite Training in Liverpool where I deliver ecological training with my colleague Carol Wain. Red Kite Training is a pioneering institution in the UK being the first mainstream training program to offer an ecological approach to Masters level psychotherapy training. We foreground the ecological in this training, weaving in Transactional Analysis and many other contemporary psychotherapeutic ideas. Therefore we welcome applications from those new in to the profession as well as existing practitioners of all modalities. The training is suitable for all those who wish to include the more-than-human in their personal and professional thinking and practice.
Depending on my availability, I offer monthly or bi monthly supervision contracts. My fee is currently £65 for an hour, paid by bank transfer on the day of the session itself.
