I am passionate about the value of professional supervision and have experienced first-hand how supervision can both enhance our practice and improve the quality of our professional (and personal) relationships. I believe that a trusting relationship is at the heart of supervision, and I am committed to creating a safe space where you feel valued and supported to explore issues, dilemmas, and decisions made in the course of your working day.

My approach is warm, non-judgmental, and thoughtful, and I will listen to you with curiosity and compassion while you explore your practice and make sense of feelings and experiences that may arise in your work.


The first step is to contact me to arrange a time for us to have an initial discussion, where we can discuss what you would like from supervision, what I can offer and how we might work together in a way that is of most benefit to you. This is an opportunity to find out more about supervision, ask any questions you may have and see if I am the right supervisor for you.

I provide face to face individual and group supervision in south Manchester and also offer supervision remotely.

I offer supervision to sign and spoken language interpreters and allied professionals including lip speakers, teaching assistants, support workers and CSWs.

“I have been having professional supervision for over a year now with Ali and have found it invaluable. I work in mental health, and although systems are set up to allow myself and my colleagues to debrief, it has been great to be able to bring whatever I feel I need to (even the smallest thing) to the session. She allows me a non-judgmental, confidential space to reflect on my practice whilst signposting to articles, models, etc. Even when I feel I don’t have much to raise or bring to the session, there is always something that pops up and is pertinent to my work.”

“Ali, I truly appreciate our supervision sessions. You are a fantastic listener, and all the advice you have given me has been very productive. You have the ability to make me feel completely different at the end of our sessions to how I felt at the beginning, and my only regret is that I didn’t start supervision with you years ago.”

“Supervision has really helped me on both a professional and personal level. I feel I can be myself and express things about my job that I can’t always with others.”

“Ali is objective and understanding and professional. Supervision is not a chat over coffee with your co-worker! This is constructive and helps me challenge my response to issues that arise in interpreting assignments and gain a different and more balanced perspective.”
