"I never knew that Supervision could be so nurturing and egalitarian. You're the Supervisor I've been looking for"

~ Supervisee

Hi, I’m Joanna. I might just be your new Supervisor.


Let me tell you a little about me:

I'm an Integrative Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor accredited by the NCIP. I also hold registration with CNHC and NCH.

Becoming a therapist was an organic path for me, 'a calling' some might say. I first started studying psychotherapeutic interventions in my early 20s. Due my own background and working through my own trauma, I came to the conclusion early; ''this will be my life's work''.

I went on to formally study as a Integrative Psychotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist, and following on, I began in private practice and never looked back. After half a decade, I decided to further my professional roll by studying Clinical Supervision, in order to support others in my field.

I have found that I thoroughly enjoy the Therapist-Supervisor Relationship.

My therapy practice is Trauma informed, Compassionate, Person-Centred and Psychodynamic. And within my approach, I also draw from; Attachment Theory, Polyvagal theory, Gestalt, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Parts Therapy, EMDR and more.

I work with BACP and NCIP students/registered/accredited therapists, for Clinical Supervision.

More on My Approach to Supervision:

My Supervisory approach is eclectic, using the Seven-Eyed Model, the IDM (Integrative Developmental Model) along with deep consideration of Michael Carroll's model of Supervision (1996-2014).

I consider my way of working in supervisory relationships to be a reciprocal and nurturing experience. Many of us have used Supervision as a Tick-box experience or a risk assessment, but good supervision is much more than this. Supervision is a huge subject that means different things to different people. I consider it a collaborative partnership with very deep and connecting dialogue, that is most beneficial to be supervisee led. To use metaphor, I consider Supervision to be; a container - to be held safely, a mirror - to reflect, and a playground - to explore and get creative, with encouragement. What do you consider supervision to be?

Through our sessions, I'll acknowledge what makes you feel safe, confident and relaxed to open up about your work & motivations, and I plan to maintain this with you.

I find that feedback from my supervisees is a crucial part of what makes the supervisee-supervisor relationship so collaborative.

Being a therapist can be isolating at times, we're unable to speak to others about our days at work in detail, and that means we hold a lot. The work you do is profoundly important. Supervision is about having the space to share the load, to put down what you're holding to examine it, to feel lighter and work though possible barriers - allowing the work to deepen, for both you and your client.

I’m a deep thinker, so I enjoy complex and puzzling cases. I have experienced many a supervisor focused on giving advice and risk assessments over being with the supervisee, the relationship and the client work. I'm here to uphold the valuable ''caring supervisor'' role. We could look at where you are as a therapist, how you feel about the work you do with your unique clients, and what could help you to find yourself in the room.


Ethics and principles are what hold up the therapeutic community and it’s something that I feel is essential to keep questioning; Making the space for my supervisees to consider ethical dilemmas and safeguarding concerns, so not to be alone with them. I believe there is nothing you can't bring to supervision, once you feel safe.

If I sound like a good fit for you and you're looking for someone to challenge you (with care) in your practice as well as support and encourage you as an individual, contact me.
