Saved Save profile

I offer supervision to practising counsellors, psychotherapists and trainees who are seeking support in their work and a space where they can reflect on their practice. 

My orientation is integrative relational and I work within a psychodynamic and humanistic framework.  I have a special interest in mindfulness based practice.  My aim is to provide an enquiring, supportive and compassionate environment within which you can explore, develop and grow.  I see supervision as joint practice, a collaborative and creative process that holds an in depth reflection of the work.  I do not see my role as educator or as offering expert opinion but rather as a co-explorer in relationship where we can learn together. 

I consider myself extremely fortunate over the years to have worked with a number of influential and supportive supervisors who have provided me with a safe, non-judgmental and challenging space in which to hold my practice.  I have learnt that the working alliance between supervisor and therapist is of crucial importance in providing effective and beneficial supervision.  Once established, a wholesome supervision relationship plays an essential part in resourcing and taking care of ourselves as practitioners.

I work with counsellors and psychotherapists from a range of modalities including person centered, psychodynamic, transactional analysis, and gestalt.  I hold a Diploma and a PG Cert in Counselling Supervision and my work is informed by the work and theoretical models of Page & Wosket and Hawkins & Shohet.  I draw upon over 14 years experience as an integrative counsellor working in both private practice and as a senior counsellor at the University of Winchester
