Group Supervision

Group supervision has the capacity to stimulate ideas and for supervisees to feel supported and companioned in their work. It can provide a valuable adjunct to individual supervision and may have a teaching component.

Individual Supervision

I enjoy working with you to develop your full potential and to hone in on critical moments and blind spots, to maximise learning and mobilise effectiveness in all aspects of your work.

Community Development

You can request a specially designed supervision or training group for your organisation, tailored to your situation and current issues to strengthen relationships and reduce isolation.

Workplace Coaching and Mentoring

Get help to refine your work practice and your ability to create positive relationships and work throught challenges.

Team Building

I will assist you to find creative and innovative responses to current issues, discover your shared values and make them work and increase the potency of the service you offer others.

Families

I help families with children and also adult families to understand family dynamics and work together to enjoy each other and face challenges in the sometimes stressful world we live in.

My Approach & Philosophy

 My dream is that people all over the world will become more active sociometrists, highly valuing relationship and having the ability to make intelligent, sensitive and potent interventions.

Openness and flexibility, a playful touch, and attention to emotional tone and timing assist me to follow the warm-up of a group or individual. 

As I reflect on my experience, the best way I can describe it is that I give myself and others a spontaneity training workout, and this has a good effect. Everyone has their own creative style. 

My provocation to you is to have a go …

Tansy’s take on it

Tansy is a twelve-year-old Border Collie dog. When she is at home, she is a working dog and a pet, herding llamas and chickens and sometimes children, and playing with her son Mr. Brock, a Border Collie Huntaway crossbred. But Tansy has another important role. She comes with me, her pack leader, and companions me in the counselling and therapy work I do at the Urban Eden Psychotherapy Centre.

Extraordinary Children: Harnessing the Potency of Elemental Roles

Sara Crane traces the journey of her psychotherapeutic work with three children, describing how she came to appreciate the therapeutic potency of the extraordinary elemental roles enacted by them.
