About Miriam

Miriam was first introduced to supervision and supervision training when she studied at the Metonia Institute of Psychotherapy and Personal Development in London in the mid 80’s. It was an integral part of a six-year period of training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy.

As part of her professional development and ongoing commitment to best practice and professional standards, Miriam maintained her commitment to maintained her supervision skills and experience during a 14-year period in which she regularly attended a supervision group with senior psychotherapists and colleagues.

Miriam has spent time in senior management in the public sector, and attended many leadership, and management courses. In addition to core training, she has also attended workshops on Supervision and Contractual Relationships with Fanita English.

She has managed a Department within a Local Authority, writing Supervision Policies, Procedures and Protocols, and trained senior and middle managers in Supervision Skills. Years of hands-on experience complement Miriam’s broad base of training. Core elements of the cognitive, dynamic and behavioural insights of Transactional Analysis combine with training on supervision process, meaning that Miriam can bring a great deal to coaching supervision in a variety of contexts.

Throughout her career, being supervised has played ­– and continues to play – an essential part in Miriam’s own professional practice. In her words: “I’m delighted that supervision is increasingly becoming part of best coaching practice.”
