'Quality work cannot be sustained alone.’ 

(Hawkins and McMahon 2020: 1)

I have completed Supervision Training with CSTD Bath (Centre for Supervision, Training and Development) and have obtained a Diploma Award. CSTD Bath is endorsed by The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy as a ‘Recognised Supervisor Training’ and meets all UKCP’s requirements for Supervision


I work from an intersubjective and dialogical perspective and relatedness is at the core of my approach to supervision.

My supervision practice is informed by the 'Seven-Eyed’ model first developed by Hawkins and Shohet in the 1980s (5th edition Hawkins and McMahon: 2020). From the focus on the client of mode one through to the interlocking processes and relationships of supervisee/client/supervisor/system, the ‘Seven-Eyed’ model allows a considered and comprehensive exploration of the work.

In working with supervisees, I draw from McMahon’s four ‘guiding principles’ (Hawkins and McMahon 2020: 60-61). These are to:

  • Offer emotional presence and sensitivity
  • Value both vulnerability and competence
  • Offer knowledge and experience with humility
  • Develop a relationship to support continued personal and professional growth.

In a Winnicottian sense, I want my supervisees to feel held and to encourage a sense of play within a creative and facilitative shared space.
