I am an Accredited BACP Counsellor and UKCP Psychotherapist.  I qualified and have worked as a Counsellor since 2003 and have since qualified as an Accredited UKCP Psychotherapist in 2016.  I have held a Supervision Diploma since 2009 and am now qualified as a UKCP Supervisor following my in-depth training in Psychotherapy, working Relationally and Developmentally.   I have experience supervising Trainee and Qualified Therapists.

I offer a secure, safe place for qualified and trainee Counsellors & Psychotherapists to access top quality Supervision.  One of the things which Supervisees have often requested is a place where they can be 'human' and can bring themselves with all the thoughts, feelings and questions which may arise when counselling clients.  I endeavour to develop a solid, honest working alliance with Supervisees in order that clients get the best service and Therapists feel safe and effective in their work.

Counselling and Psychotherapy rely heavily upon the emotional health and development of the practitioners and it is Supervision which monitors and serves to maintain this.

Supervision has several roles:

Normative - taking responsibility for standards and ethics and good practice.
Formative - sharing responsibility for the development of the worker in skills, knowledge and understanding.
Restorative - providing opportunities for discharge and re-charge, support and help in 'finding your feet', as well as celebrating successes and work well done. Perspective - taking an overview of the Supervisee's work.

In my experience, all these roles are essential for the Supervisee to be working ethically, mindfully, safely and effectively, for their own well-being as well as that of the client.  As with any psychotherapy and counselling experience, the relationship is of key importance.  The Supervisee and Supervisor are of equal importance in the success and effectiveness of Supervision.  This is a 'collegial' relationship - colleague to colleague, with two or more minds focussing on the issue in order to help the Supervisee work at their best with their clients.

Fees: £45 per hour for one to one.       Group (2 - 4) supervision also available. 

I see clients and Supervisees and at my Therapy room at home in Watton near Driffield and Beverley.  I also offer Online Supervision.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

In Watton I am on the ground floor with easy accessibility.
