Supervision experience: My general practice has been established since February 2010.  From 2013 I had experience with in-house supervision of peers within Mental Health Aberdeen.  In 2014 I qualified with certificates in both Individual and Group Supervision.  I have experience working with both qualified therapists and counsellors in training and find the different requirements interesting, both as an internal and external/independent supervisor.

 Employment History: I have worked with Mental Health Aberdeen since November 2009 and have spent most of these recent years as the Lead Counsellor within the Calsayseat Adult Counselling Project, based at Calsayseat Medical Group at Powis Place in Aberdeen. I left MHA to become fully self-employed in September 2019.  Prior to counselling training, I worked 18 years with NHS Grampian as a Senior Community Paediatric Occupational Therapist.

 Clinical Approach:  My approach as a counsellor and as a supervisor is Person-Centred and I qualified with both my Diploma and Certificate in Supervision at Aberdeen University.  My Group Supervision training was with Robin Shohet and Joan Wilmot at the Centre for Supervision and Team Development.  Following that training it reinforced that I aspire to be a ‘Compassionate Supervisor’.

Professional Membership:  I gained accredited status with BACP in 2012.

 Fees: I offer an initial exploratory session free of charge but thereafter charge £40 per hour.  (£60 for a monthly 1 1/2Hr session)

 Access:  Inverurie is easily accessed by car and there are regular bus and rail links to the town. My office is fully accessible.
