I believe that a trusting relationship is at the heart of professional supervision and I offer a collegial approach to supervision that is supervisee-centred and supervisee-led. As your supervisor I will work alongside you while you explore your practice and help you make sense of feelings and experiences that may arise in your work.
I tailor supervision to the needs of each individual supervisee and my aim is for you to feel valued and supported to explore work related issues, dilemmas and decisions made in the course of your working day.
I provide supervision to Sign and spoken language interpreters and allied professionals such as lip speakers, teaching assistants, support workers and CSWs.
THE FIRST STEP You can contact me to arrange a time for us to have an initial discussion via Skype or face to face, 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 individual face to face supervision in south Manchester and remotely via Skype. I also offer group supervision and can travel to you, please contact me for more information.

“The supervision sessions I have undertaken with Ali for the past 7 months have become an essential part of my practice and
development as a British Sign Language interpreter. Using her extensive practical experience and theoretical knowledge, Ali creates a truly safe space in which to explore all aspects of a working interpreter’s life. Whether I raise issues relating to a specific booking or experiencing imposter syndrome, Ali is able to guide me through a process of honest and objective evaluation, that inevitably leads to positive next steps or effective solutions. What is more, she achieves this with empathy and compassion. There is no hesitation in my mind that Ali has helped me become a more rounded interpreter, to the benefit of me and everyone I encounter in a professional capacity.
“Ali is objective, understanding and professional. Supervision is not a chat over coffee with your co- worker! This is constructive; helps me challenge my response to issue that arise in interpreting assignments and gain a different and more balanced perspective.”
“Ali has a friendly, flexible and non-judgmental approach, adapting to the issues I want to focus on. It is a safe environment where I feel able to take any type of work dilemma. It is great to have a regular space to take ethical dilemmas, practical work issues, and discuss professional development.”
