I qualified as a supervisor in 2014 and enjoy working with groups or individuals. From a pluralistic approach I am influenced by humanistic, intersubjective and creative models plus a range of models. I offer supervision that is flexible, reflective as well as challenging, encouraging and energising. To me supervision is an invaluable space to ensure that personally and professionally we strive for clinical good practice.
I offer supervision from a very relational perspective and work from a basis of curiosity with whoever I am working with.  I enjoy working collaboratively and creatively with supervisees I have worked previously in a number of organisational contexts as well as currently in full-time private practice and am aware of many of the challenges that can arise in both settings. Supervision for me is a relational, two-way process of exploring and understanding at many levels, and that is why I find it such a rich and helpful process.

Working ‘relationally’ means we have the opportunity to explore what is going on in the relationship between you and your clients, and between you and me, in order to gain insight and resilience for your work. 

A supervisee said:

“Sarah offers a gentle, safe and supportive space to really be myself which allows me to work at my own edge of awareness while her extensive experience and knowledge has also helped me to understand my clients. The trust created allows me to own my mistakes and feel safe when she challenges me. I feel that as a supervisor Sarah doesn’t just guide me, she has also helped me to grow. I have often said that although I sometimes don’t know what I need, I always get just what I needed.”

Group Supervision - I have worked in a number of agencies offering group supervision, and greatly enjoy all the rich opportunities that groups offer. Within that creative exploratory space, which I believe is the main task of supervision, the issues of safety and ethics will flow throughout the work if the relationship is trusting, dynamic and energetic. It has been my experience in my own relational supervision that I have grown both professionally and personally and it is my aim to provide an exciting space for growth for my supervisees and continues to grow myself as a professional and a human being.
