People are my passion and not only in the interpreting professional but also across allied professions, particularly those that engage with the Deaf community, as a heritage signer, I have seen personally and professionally where supervision of interpreters and allied professionals benefit the community they engage, so for me being part of a cohort of supervisors that can provide that professional supervision is a privilege.
I am a registered interpreter with NRCPD since 2016, and a senior RAF air cadet officer (2008) with mentoring and staff development qualifications, both careers have worked in parallel for me as they are people roles of which is my passion, I have experience with social care, mental health and legal settings.
We are emotional humans, in a world of open access with social media, it can be difficult as professionals to find a safe space to process in a way that is personally comfortable and is individual. Supervision is about switching off the constant interference of the outside world and many opinions people want to share good and bad, and placing one’s own thoughts and feelings in a safe space to process. Then re-enter the busy world with clarity and ability to select the noise that is useful and be able to let go of that, which is not.
I can provide face to face and online supervision; the initial session is free of charge. I am based in Hampshire.
