Saved Save profile

I offer supervision to qualified counsellors, counselling students, and to practitioners from other professional backgrounds. I  aim to provide my supervisee's with a reflective, supportive and ethically mindful space.  I place an emphasis on the importance of realness and compassion in my  work, promoting a human approach with strong professional boundaries. 

I am an integrative therapist, with a person centred approach to my client work and supervision.  My original Diploma was psychodynamic, I now use this theoretically to inform my practice, but not in process.   Since completing my degree in counselling and psychotherapy I have been working as an integrative therapist, drawing my theoretical knowledge from the counselling approaches of person centred, existential, cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic.  

As a counsellor and previously as a practitioner within the statutory and voluntary sector I have gained experience of working with children, young people and adults.  My experience covers counselling in mental health, a crisis centre, a university, primary and secondary schools.  I have worked also within social care providing one to one and group support to parents and young people.  I have managed and co-ordinated counselling services, volunteers and training.  I also have personal experience of living and working abroad in a military setting.

I hold a PG Certificate in Supervision from KRCS, certified by the  University of Gloucester and a Advanced Diploma in Counselling Supervision.  My Supervision practice is based on an integration of three supervision models, Inskipp & Proctor's(1995) functional model, Page & Wosket's (2001) cyclical model and Hawkins and Shohet's (1989/2001) seven eyed model. I'm an accredited and registered member of the British Association for counselling & psychotherapy and I work in line with their ethical framework.   Please feel free to contact me to discuss your supervision needs
