Experienced and qualified supervisor working with students, pre-accredited and senior therapists. Locations in Galway City Center, Kinvara as well as online
My early trainings were integrative, with modalities including Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Person-centered, CBT and Existential.
Since then I have had a lot of training and experience incorporating Family Systems therapy, couples and group therapy, trauma and suicide intervention, mindfulness, retrospective reporting and supporting trainers as well as workshop leaders.
As a supervisor, however, I see myself less as belonging to a particular school of thought/practice and more as someone whose role is to understand the needs of the supervisee and that of their clients. This may include case work, education and support or insight on the workings of public and private bodies that sometimes intersect with the work.

“Supervision is a joint endeavour in which a practitioner, with the help of a supervisor, attends to their clients, themselves as part of their client practitioner relationships and the wider systemic context, and by so doing improves the quality of their work, transforms their client relationships, continuously develops themselves, their practice and the wider profession.” (Hawkins P. &Shohet R. 2012, P.5)
