Supervision for counsellors and supervisors
During supervision practitioners explore their work and attend to their personal and professional development. Supervision is a professional requirement that helps you to meet the needs of clients and supervisees, and to also take good care of yourself.
Together we reflect upon areas that are relevant to your practice, including any concerns and dilemmas that might occur. Supervision is also an opportunity to celebrate when something has gone well. I view supervision as a supportive relationship, that also encourages you to challenge yourself.
I work with experienced and trainee therapists, as well as supervisors exploring their own supervisory practice.
If you are BACP Accredited or planning to apply for BACP Accreditation you will need to show that you have had one and a half hours of supervision per calendar month.

Focusing in North West London
Perhaps you would like to know yourself at a deeper level, to understand what is going on inside, and to work with any areas that are causing stress and pain.
With Focusing you may discover fresh perspectives that can help if you are feeling emotionally overwhelmed, trying to make a decision, struggling with intrusive thoughts or feeling that something inside is blocking you from taking an action such as changing jobs or starting a new relationship.
Perhaps you have tried pushing difficult emotions away and changing how you feel, but the feelings just become stronger. With Focusing you can be in relationship with your feelings in an accepting and empathic way that allows them to change naturally.
Focusing recognizes that our bodies know and can tell us what we need for physical and emotional health. Heavy eyes may be a clear sign that we need to sleep or perhaps our eyes are heavy with tears. Our bodies give us a great deal of information. Focusing helps us to notice our body's messages, to pause, and give space for more to emerge.

Focusing Training in North West London
For people interested in personal development
The Certificate is designed with the intention of gently reinforcing and furthering your development as Focuser and Companion, it encourages self-awareness and self-acceptance.
You do not need to have had any experience to start. Learning in a group setting can be fun whilst also enhancing personal growth. Focusing workshops are in North West London. I am a Certified Trainer with the Focusing Institute and a recognized teacher with The British Focusing Association.
For counsellors and therapists
Focusing is a special way of listening to your inner self allowing for deeper insights and understandings. You can be more in touch with what you are experiencing whilst you are with clients adding to the quality of your work. There are also opportunities to consider bringing Focusing to your own practice and how this might be implemented.
Having learnt the basics you might like to Focus during supervision. This can enhance reflections and bring fresh understandings.
