 I started working as a Clinical Supervisor for counsellors and psychotherapists of all orientations, during the time I co-ran a Counselling Service for the Community Network (Adult Mental health Day Services) in 2002. I then qualified as an Arts Therapy Supervisor in 2008 with the Sesame Institute for Movement and Drama therapy. ( Also Recognised by BADth, the British Association of Dramatherapists).

I currently supervise Arts Therapists, Counsellors and Psychotherapists. My approach as a  supervisor is similar to the way I work as a therapist. I work with a Process model of Supervision- the Seven-Eyed Supervisor Model, based on Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet' s book; Supervision in the Helping Professions. Drawing, therapeutic cards with images, stones, movement and role-play can also be used to explore what is happening between the therapist and client, or to explore an issue that has arisen in the therapy

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified


I work daytime and evenings. I currently have some available spaces, so please do phone or email me.
