I have been a qualified, freelance British Sign Language Interpreter since 2012, having studied with
Sign Solutions. I am based in Warrington, Cheshire. I have a broad experience within the interpreting
field, working in a wide variety of domains. Prior to this I was employed by a local deaf charity for
fourteen years, working within a range of roles including interpreter, in house personal
communication assistant, outreach support services, careers guidance and a volunteer coordinator.
Before this time, I completed a BA (Hons) in English Language Studies which has been invaluable in
my career as an interpreter.
In 2019 I qualified as a CAVA assessor and continue within this role, assessing and supporting
learners within their journey to becoming a qualified interpreter. I very much enjoy seeing learners
flourish and develop skills and confidence, through to becoming TSLI, and then MRSLI.
I did some CPD training on supervision many years ago with 360 Supervision, which then sparked an
interest in taking this further. I realised that within a supervisory role I had the opportunity to give
more than I can within my role as assessor, and so I began my diploma!
I studied and successfully completed my Diploma in Professional Supervision for Sign Language
Interpreters and Allied Professionals in 2022.
Now, I continue with my roles as BSL interpreter, assessor and professional supervisor – alongside
caring for my two children, so I have full understanding of the work/life/family load we often juggle!
I can offer a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space for you to reflect and explore your practice.
Supervision is time you set aside for yourself (which we rarely allow ourselves to do!), time to
examine, consider, discuss, a wide range of things that are raised through your role. It can be
discussing a difficult booking, lack of self confidence within your work, dilemmas, dynamics,
co-working, ambition, achievements and anything else work related you want to bring to the table.
Professional supervision is a commitment, and a gift to give yourself. Make that time to check in
with yourself – it really is important!

meet face to face, and alternatively offer remote sessions too.
