Creative Body Based Supervision
I offer supervision to those who are interested in exploring their client/student work in creative, action based ways, drawing on the body and movement, improvisation and play. I aim to bring a balance of perspectives on what is present in the body, mind and feelings of the practitioner and client/student.
I have worked in a range of Statutory, Voluntary and Independent Sectors. I have experience of work in Adult Community Mental Health, Learning Disability, Older People, Early Years Education and Adoption Services. I have had roles of social worker, play worker, support worker, community arts worker, therapist and trainer.
As a supervisor I am interested to support practitioners/therapists/teachers in processing what they are left with in working with others, and how this is held in the body. I hope to support exploration of this rich resource, to enable greater understanding, flow, vitality, groundedness and choice.
I am a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist, have a Diploma in Counselling and have been working in the field of body and movement for the last 20 years. I’m on the teaching faculty of the Institute for Integrative Bodywork & Movement Therapy and am visiting lecturer at a number of UK Universities (University of London, Goldsmiths: MA in Dance Movement Psychotherapy; UCLan: MA Dance and Somatic Well-being).
I work in a collaborative and person-centred way and aim to provide supervisees with:
- a safe, supportive space.
- an opportunity to explore and understand the dynamics present in your work.
- an opportunity to develop resources so that you can feel more effective and rewarded in your work.
Sessions are confidential and I receive supervision on my supervision.
I am about to further my skills through studying for a Diploma in Creative Approaches to Supervision, so am currently offering supervision sessions at a reduced rate. Sessions available in South Devon. Please get in touch for details.
