I have completed the CMF pathway of Introduction, Advanced, and Retreat workshops. I have also attended additional training with Prof Paul Gilbert and Drs. Chris Irons, Deborah Lee, Charlie Heriot-Maitland, Kate Lucre, Russell Kolts, Neil Clapton, and Syd Hiskey as well as Deirdre Fay. I am a regular delegate at the annual CMF conference and a member of the CFT and the Body Special Interest Group. I feel very privileged to belong to such an amazing community of people. I completed formal supervisor training as part of my doctorate. This involved reviewing taped individual supervision sessions with my supervisor, and co-facilitating supervision groups with her. There was also a theory / coursework component of this training. I am registered to begin the CMF supervisor training pathway this year. I attend monthly supervision with Dr. Neil Clapton. I have over 30 years experience working in the area of psychology and mental health. Earlier in my career I worked mainly with children and adolescents, and worked in an outpatient service for children who had experienced sexual abuse. My work now is with adults.
