My journey in professional growth has always held supervision at its core. It deepens my understanding, fortifies my commitment to ethical conduct, and amplifies reflective practice. This September, I embark on a new chapter, commencing my supervision training at the Contemporary Institute for Clinical Sexology (CICS). My goal is to serve my communities better, guiding and supporting fellow professionals.
Launching my private practice in September 2017 was an eye-opener. The influx of neurodivergent clients, many grappling with their differences, was something my initial training hadn’t anticipated. With dedication, I sought out continuous professional development to provide the best care.
As the years unfolded and I acknowledged my own neuro-differences, the reasons for my deep connection with this client group became evident. This enlightenment led me to acquire knowledge rarely discussed in conventional psychotherapy and counselling courses. Herein lies my niche, a space where I offer specialised guidance and support.
You likely have a trusted bond with a primary supervisor but have identified a gap in understanding neurological differences and trauma. Envision me as an adjunct, a trainee supervisor enhancing, not supplanting, your primary support.
I offer expertise in three key areas:
1. Clinical Psychotherapy and Counselling:
For clients with ADHD or Autism in your care, my perspective and insights can be invaluable.
2. Non-Clinical Research:
As “trauma-informed research” gains momentum in non-clinical arenas, there’s a need to bridge clinical knowledge gaps. I offer tailored supervision to non-clinical researchers navigating these challenges.
3. Clinical Research:
Within the domain of clinical research, not all researchers have in-depth training in trauma-informed practices or a nuanced understanding of the neurodivergent spectrum. In these situations, I’m here as an auxiliary supervisor to provide additional support.
Availability & Costs:
I have earmarked a set of 10 sessions for each supervisee. Being at the outset of my training, I offer these supervision sessions at a preferential rate of £40 per session across these 10 sessions whilst I am in training. If this proposal resonates with you, I invite you to get in touch.
