When I work
Unfortunately I am unable to take on new clients for the time being.
I am a qualified (Diploma in Clinical Supervision) and experienced supervisor. I provide supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors/psychotherapists. I offer both individual and group supervision.
I believe that supervision is central to the development and maintenance of ethical practice. It provides a reflective space for practitioners to review and develop their work and plays an important role in counsellor self-care. I have an integrative and relational approach to supervision and I endeavour to provide an environment in which counsellors feel both supported and challenged in their work.
For an initial meeting I charge £25 and thereafter fees are £55 per 50 minute session.
