Hello and welcome to my supervision profile. I am a fully qualified Supervisor and experienced Counselling therapist offering a professional and confidential service, supporting fellow practitioners and trainees. I have experience in supervising both trainees and qualified therapists working with counsellors beginning out on placement to more experienced counsellors/psychotherapists.

I have acquired a vast amount of experience in this field over the years, working with a broad range of issues. I offer one-to-one face to face supervision alongside telephone support when/where needed, and I also facilitate group supervision; working from an integrative perspective, supporting the work of supervisees. I believe supervision should be supportive yet enjoyable whilst integrating best practice and safety. I seek to provide a safe and informative environment offering a safe space to explore and make sense of your work and feelings, a place to explore your own thoughts and feelings about both client work, and yourself within the process.Offering supervision that supports your clinical work and self-growth / awareness, alongside, exploring different aspects, interventions and skills.

Offering- help & encouragement; developing reflective practice; planning; exploring transference, counter transference & projection; different perspectives; empowerment & choices; preparation to be open & receptive to feedback; develop understanding, skills & theory; to have space to explore any personal issues (however this is not personal therapy); exploring contracting, boundary setting including time management & endings; enhancing own internal supervisor; discuss - similar client history, potential strong feelings either positive or negative; develop 'care of self'; strategies to avoid overload or burn-out; encourage both professional & self awareness; personal development; ethics & professional practice to ensure quality of work Yet also alongside success and to recognise when the work has gone well.

Remember also - To be yourself, not a perfectionist, to trust in your own abilities, helping to utilise the 'self' as a resource, rather than become an expert, and the humanistic belief that the therapists ability to learn to facilitate client understanding, underpinning the notion of trust in the clients own wisdom.  We are constantly growing, learning & exploring.

Training, Qualifications, Experience - I am a fully qualified Supervisor, independently accredited by the National Council of Psychotherapists. Integrative Therapy Supervisory Skills (NCP), Registration number - DGB058021011.

I offer both Individual and Group supervision for SARAC and The Eaton Foundation, with volunteers, trainees and qualified professionals, working with rape, sexual and/or domestic abuse, both male and females.

I am a Registered member of The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, ensuring ethical practice in line with current supervision requirements, MBACP - The less experience the therapist has the more experience the supervisor should have. Supervisors should be sufficiently experienced & qualified in therapy or in a closely related field, for others to have confidence in their professional skills and to have rapport with all concerned.
