I have been a practising NRCPD Registered interpreter for more than 30 years. My
experience is broad and I was an in-house interpreter prior to starting my freelance career
20 years ago. I have always been committed to and engaged within the profession, and am
a founder member of a strong, supportive peer group. Discovering supervision has
enhanced every aspect of my practice.
My own experience of professional supervision began (purely coincidentally!) just as the
first lockdown arrived in 2020. This one-to-one supervision has proved pivotal in helping me
gain perspective on my career and has supported me in finding my professional priorities
and focus since then. I completed the Diploma in Professional Supervision in June 2022
following the year-long programme of study and practice with 360 Supervision and am so
excited for what comes next.
I am passionate about the benefits that professional supervision can offer us as practising
interpreters, at any stage of our careers. We are used to communicating in the moment
with our clients. However, we can be less used to sitting back and taking a wider perspective
on our work, which puts us in the picture too and enables us to consider the impact that all
these interactions are having on us. Supervision can be enlightening and challenging and it
is different for each person; the relationship that you develop with your supervisor will be
personal to you and is paramount, so it is important that you take time to find someone
right for you.
I would work with you to create a safe, calm, non-judgmental, dedicated space in which
you are free to explore what is important to you and make sense of your experiences at
work. I am based in Bromley, on the borders of south east London and Kent, and can
provide one to one sessions online, or face-to-face by negotiation. If you would like to know
more before making a decision please get in touch.
