What is supervision?
A professional relationship between two people created to support their work with others.
This relationship may become a deeply personal and trusting one and there is often an element of personal growth involved. However, the focus is on the understanding, clarification and exploration of the supervisee's work, clinical practice, or professional learning.
I am experienced in working with trainees who are just starting out and clinicians in full time practice and a variety of fields.
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is the in depth exploration of your self. We will develop a meaningful relationship and through different ways of working, I will help you to unpick the elements in your story that are hindering you coming into your full potential .
I also work with couples and groups.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I currently run a closed group on alternate Thursdays. I have been approached by clients and asked to start a new group. Please get in touch with me if you would be interested.
I am considering beginning a new therapy group for women only. Please contact me if you are interested.
Group therapy is a rewarding and valuable process of self discovery. Though one:one therapy can support the individual in an intimate and safe environment, group work allows greater possibility for rewriting negative beliefs with the support and care of peers. It is especially beneficial for people who have found early family life challenging.

My fee for individual psychotherapy (60 minutes) is £60
I offer some discretionary rates.
