I am an experienced supervisor and counsellor working in the Brighton and Horsham areas.
Over the last 12 years, I have been supervising counsellors who work with various theoretical models, in a variety pf settings - schools, GP surgeries, student counselling services, and voluntary sector charities
When working with colleagues in supervision I am able to offer a safe and appropriately challenging space to reflect. I hope to support counsellors to both enjoy and feel contained by our work together. Fundamentally I believe clinical supervision should be a creative experience for both supervisee and supervisor,
I have extensive experience in working with counsellors with varying levels of experience - from trainee counsellors to therapists who have been in practice for many years.
Having originally qualified as a psychodynamic counsellor, I have gained from further training and working with colleagues using different theoretical models. Consequently I am able to offer both psychodynamic and integrative supervision. Within supervision I use a relational approach exploring the overlapping relationships between counsellor/client, supervisor/counsellor, and supervisor/client. This approach is very flexible and can bring new understandings of client material and options for the client.
I thoroughly enjoy the therapeutic creativity within supervisory relationships and look forward to hearing from you if you would like to meet to discuss your supervision requirements.
