NATIONAL SUPERVISION GROUPS (entirely on zoom)
***2022/2033 SUPERVISION DATES WILL BE ADDED SOON***
We are delighted that we have top supervisors to offer supervision to any TISUK trainee (currently on a 10 or 12 day training) or a TISUK graduate. Our supervisors are all qualified and registered psychotherapists or mentors who have all been working in educational settings for decades.
Supervision provides a safe and contained space in which delegates are supported to reflect more deeply about the nature and challenges of their professional work. It serves also to consider the emotional impact that very often exists for educators as they work to support and educate young people from a variety of backgrounds. Supervision is purposeful and is intended to help educators gain further insight into the emotional landscape, motivations and presenting behaviours of the young people with whom they work. Clear guidance will be given on when or where to refer on to, where necessary.
Supervision for Practitioners/Practitioners in training is booked in blocks of 6 sessions at a cost of £180 for the block of 6 or 3 sessions for £100, contact details to book below.

After many years working as a theatre director I now have an MA in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy (Distinction).
I recently worked in the NHS with survivors of sexual abuse, and the legacy of trauma and complex PTSD. I have also worked with homeless groups, psychiatric patients, refugees and young offenders.
Currently much of my work is with staff and young people in performing arts and drama schools. At Guildhall we are introducing a strand to the training that recognises that psychological understanding can deeply enrich the student's practice, as well as supporting personal growth and resilience.
I am particularly interested in the ways the arts can support mental health by giving access to our inner resources, creativity and imagination.
For the last four years I have run a counselling service at the International School of Screen Acting and recently set one up at The British American Dramatic Academy.
My background is in theatre where all my productions were accompanied by an extensive education and outreach programme for young people. I have run workshops for the Arvon Foundation, the National Theatre, Arts Council and British Council as well as in many universities, schools, theatres and drama schools. I have written six plays, all published by Nick Hern books, which have been produced both nationally and internationally. My work is on the school syllabus.

Registered member of the Institute of Arts in Therapy and Education
I am an integrative child psychotherapist and Trauma Informed Schools Trainer and Supervisor.
My work with children and adolescents focuses on how to better understand the challenges young people face and where possible I work creatively using the arts to support communication and understanding.
My clinical experience involves working with groups, children, young people, parents and school staff. My practice covers a variety of complex presenting issues and emotional or behavioural difficulties and I am particularly interested in the impact of trauma on attachment and developmental systems.

Recently I have completed an advanced diploma in trauma work, focused on rape and sexual abuse and also delivered a series of staff training on the impacts of both Covid and bereavement on our clients and ourselves in a trauma setting.
I started my career first as a tax/pensions graduate working with clients for a large international accountancy firm in London and progressed as a training manager. I worked with university students/leavers teaching and organising the summer intern programme, the graduate induction course and latterly facilitated management meetings and European Conferences.
I left London 20 years ago for rural Kent to live the good life, run a smallholding and raise my family.
In the last 10 years I became a Samaritan, retrained as a counsellor and amassed several different counselling roles.
I hold a range of diverse qualifications from a latin degree to professional pensions management to counselling with a particular specialism of working with trauma and loss.

My passion is communication and connection; helping to support people in feeling heard, understood, valued and through expression, having a voice.
I am a registered counsellor with the BACP, working with adults since 2016 and continuing to do so since qualifying in March 2019. I am also involved in supporting parent and child sessions with those affected by domestic abuse.
Having completed the TIS diploma in March 2020, I trained as a trainer in March 2021 and a TIS supervisor in Sept 21. As a Home Group Tutor, I have supported delegates attending the on-line diplomas, and I have both taken part and facilitated reflective group supervision, experiencing a felt sense of how beneficial this is.
Alongside counselling I have 15 years’ experience of working as a Speech and Language Therapy assistant. Creating resources for, and working with, children and young people who have profound and multiple learning disabilities and require alternative ways of communicating which allows their ‘voice’ to be heard.
As a Regional Makaton tutor over 10 years, I have had the privilege of training staff, parents, and professionals, mindful of sensitively holding different groups with different needs. I have also worked with frontline agencies and have set up a project creating a resource to equip them in supporting vulnerable people in crisis.
I have been involved in different community teams including Street Pastors, Food Bank, and youth projects, and I am currently a volunteer Chaplain with the Police.
My vision is to dovetail all aspects of my skills and experience. To offer space to anyone who wants to effect any change where they feel it may be needed, by listening to how things are, what matters, and reflecting this back through the lens of the Trauma Informed approach.
