Supervision and Training

I am endorsed by the European Association for Transactional Analysis (EATA) as a provisional Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst (PTSTA) and I offer both individual and group supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists from my practice in Edinburgh and East Lothian. I currently run a monthly supervision group in Edinburgh. If you are interested in the possibility of joining a group or would like individual supervision please get in touch.

I take an integrative approach to supervision combining my Transactional Analysis training with a relational approach. I am interested in the unconscious motifs within supervision and group dynamics and in the last couple of years have undertaken regular supervision workshops with Robin Shohet.

Academic Student Support

During the period 2013-2015 I was employed as Academic Student Support Advisor on the Queen Margaret University Masters programme delivered by Physis Training, Edinburgh. I am interested in supporting supervisees in all written aspects of their training at whatever level that might be.
