I offer supervision to counsellors, either individually or in groups.

An experienced and fully accredited practitioner with over fifteen years and thousands of hours of experience of client work with an Integrative/Psychodynamic model. I hold a Certificate in Psychodynamic Supervision but would describe my way of working as an integrative/relational approach.  I currently see supervisees in my private practice, as well as working as a group supervisor for a charitable counselling organisation in Parkstone, Dorset.

If you would like to meet up with me to discuss the possibility of being a supervisee of mine then please get in touch and we can arrange a free meeting to talk about your current practice and supervision needs. If you wish you use this first meeting to present one of your clients to get a feel of how we might work together you can do and can ask any questions you need to. This initial meeting is completely free of charge and is offered without any obligation whatsoever. 

I am sure you will gain some understanding of the way I work as a therapist from my website, www.supervision-for-counsellors.com. I am an experienced therapist and see individual clients for short term counselling of six to twenty four sessions, work with couples and also do long term psychotherapy with clients who may work with me for several years. I do work extensively with survivors of childhood abuse, in particular sexual abuse if this an area you are already working with or feel you need specific help with.

As a supervisor I offer a relationship of consultative support to enable you to feel empowered, confident, safe and supported, which will in turn be reflected within your client work. Our relationship will be based on equality, my knowledge and experience will be imparted in an empathic and congruent manner. I believe very strongly that the relationship must be one in which you are able to be 'real', that you feel safe to be vulnerable and express and explore the more difficult aspects of your work.  

Please do not hesitate to phone me to ask any questions or email me and I will get back to you. I do offer a free initial meeting so we can meet face to face so please do not hesitate to come and meet with me.

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.
