Our staff team is our most precious resource. By creating an environment where the mental health of employees is prioritised and invested in; then there is almost a boundless reservoir of good will towards the company. Sick days are reduced, productivity increases and people stay. Too often however, our prominent and outstanding associates are diminished by their own mental health crisis’.
If you are a large organisation, multi-academy trust, a frontline charity, a national denomination or you work within the music and creative industries, you will know how Important our mental health is. I deliver workshops on mental health and resilience suited around your organisational needs. The workshop covers learning to control difficult thoughts and emotions, developing resilience, understanding our triggers, mental health self–care, CBT techniques, Mindfulness, developing healthy habits and boundaries, understanding the brain, as well as including teaching many tools and techniques to manage problematic and stressful situations.
These workshops can be delivered online or in person with unlimited attendees. After the workshop I can provide additional opportunities for informal ‘drop ins’ to answer mental health related questions. Furthermore, regular ‘One to One’s’ can be set up for your leadership team and other noteworthy individuals within your company up to a year after the training. There is always excellent feedback from these events and ‘one to one’ meetings.

- Clinical Supervision
Taking your Clinical Practice to the next level
Supervision can look like lots of things. For therapists, clinical supervision should be a safe, vibrant and dynamic environment, a place of sharing, reflexivity and learning. I like conducting supervision where we explore different therapeutic approaches and gaining new psychological perspectives. I can work with your placement and training institution as well as give guidance in terms of your academic work. My clinical supervisees range from students to very senior therapists and supervisors. We can meet for 1½ hours a month or 1 hour bi-weekly session depending on your need. I work Integratively and have lots of experience working within schools, adult services and private practice; additionally, I support therapists going through the accreditation process. My supervisees tell me the sessions are fun, equipping and invigorating.
