I am a clinical psychologist, supervisor and trainer specialising in CFT. I have been using CFT in my practice for over ten years, having attended many CFT workshops (including the three day introductory training, advanced clinical skills, CFT approaches to trauma, working with people who hear voices, chair work, compassionate leadership, and compassion focused staff support). I completed a one year postgraduate certificate in CFT at the University of Derby in 2017. I receive monthly specialist CFT supervision, and have done so for the last seven years. I co-founded and co-facilitate a local CFT peer supervision group, which has been running for five years, as well as providing individual CFT supervision for a range of psychologists and therapists. I regularly deliver CFT training to trainee clinical psychologists, and have delivered a range of CFT workshops and training sessions within my NHS trust. I have a particular interest in staff wellbeing and compassion in teams and organisations, having worked in a staff wellbeing service for two years and developing and delivering a range of compassion-focused interventions (at individual, group, and system/organisational level) during this time.

I offer Compassion Focused Supervision, bringing compassion into the supervision process itself for an experiential and relational learning experience. With safeness and courage, we can develop your CFT or integrative practice, cultivate your 'compassionate therapist self', and support/empower you as a human being. Half my week is spent supporting colleagues with supervision and training, including supervision for the CFT Diploma. I'm an experienced CFT therapist, working with adults with Complex Trauma/Anxiety/Depression in private practice (formerly NHS IAPT/CMHT), and I also draw on ACT and EMDR. My training includes the CMF's supervisor training, as well as many CFT workshops and conferences including advanced clinical skills, chairwork, personal practice, PDs and attachment problems, FBRs and trauma. I have regular CFT supervision and supervision-of-supervision. I have a certificate in supervision from the University of Birmingham (2015) and am a BABCP Accredited Supervisor.
