Saved Save profile

I qualified as a counselling supervisor in 1994 after completing the Cambridge University Certificate in the Supervision of Counselling - equivalent to modern day diploma courses from other training establishments.
 
I have over 24 years experience providing individual supervision sessions to supervisees ranging from student level to BACP accredited status and working in many fields of counselling....Primary Care, Private Practice, Drug and Alcohol, Bereavement, Schools, Employee Assistance Programmes

My approach is Integrative with particular awareness of Person Centred and Psychodynamic method, Body Oriented approaches and some CBT and Gestalt.

Many of my supervisees have stayed in supervision with me for a number of years. Some have started as student counsellors and proceeded quickly on to BACP accreditation and successful private practice. 

My approach is Integrative especially Person-Centred and Psychodynamic with knowledge of CBT interventions, Gestalt techniques, Body Oriented therapy approaches. I keep a keen awareness of the Parallel Process in supervision...an awareness of the transference and countertransference which can emerge in the supervision session and which can intuitively inform the unconscious relationship between the counsellor and client.

Many years of experience as a therapist have contributed to my practical wisdom enabling a sensitive awareness of the therapeutic relationship and the client’s individual needs.

My supervisees report feeling safe, accepted, constructively challenged and appropriately affirmed in their client work.

I welcome supervisees also trained in Hypnotherapy having successfully integrated hypnotherapy techniques into my counselling and psychotherapy practice since completing an advanced hypnotherapy training in 1995.

My supervision and counselling services are also offered to those working in the caring professions where both counselling skills are employed and emotional support sometimes needed. This may include nurses, paramedics, doctors, health visitors, occupational therapists, social workers, teachers, alternative therapists, those working in personnel departments, nursing homes, probation, prisons, police, victim support and many more voluntary organisations and charities.
