about intandem

intandem is a supervision, training and development partnership committed to supporting practitioner self-care

Founded by Cathy Sparkes and Sam Simpson in 2004, intandem originally offered a counselling and speech and language therapy service to people with neurological conditions, people who stammer and their families and friends in addition to supervision and training.
