The timing of the Sandology for SandStory Supervision®, was synergetically serendipitous!


I had created and offered an adaptation of the SandStory approach to my clinical Supervisees and was often blown away - as were my Supervisees - at the level of intuitive insights that rose from them within our sessions. I also observed how powerful it was through an online platform when lockdown during the Great Pandemic Pause changed all interaction.

Yet it was the in-person training at Roehampton University that I had offered shortly before lockdown in 2020 that established this as a safe and still incredibly empowering way to support my Supervisees - and for others to do the same. See the video below.

I am currently developing the training and hope to have it ready for launch from September 2023. Please do register your interest and I will let you know when it's ready.

Online training

Online training will be accessible in two ways:


  1. As an Individual Learner - the full training is available immediately and you can access the modules instantly and work through them at your own pace and time.

  2. As a Group Learner - at certain times through the year, I offer an online live group where I take you through the training curriculum together. Dates begin in June 2024.

All participants will have lifelong access to the training, a private Facebook group to connect with and become members of the International SandStory Association [ISA].

In-person training

In-person training with me will be offered once a year in June from 2024 at the SandStory Centre

[Stanmore, North West London]. The training will run over 2 days.


All participants also have free access to the online training so can revisit and refresh themselves with the training in the future.

Take a look below at the lovely feedback when I taught SandStory Supervision® to a group of 40 Supervisors at Roehampton University - on the cusp of the pandemic!
