I am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor and am listed on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I have worked as a Supervisor for 12 years and a Counsellor for over 19 years and have experienced counselling and supervision from many different perspectives, all of which enable me to take a flexible point of view when providing supervision.
My approach is Person Centred and I offer a professional overview of your work together with guidance from an ethical and theoretical position, plus my many years of experience. It is important to me that you feel comfortable within our supervision sessions and able to work honestly and confidently with me so that you can, in turn, work well and successfully with your clients, secure in the knowledge that you are supported in all aspects of your work.
My way of working is based upon Michael Carroll’s model of supervision which utilises seven tasks: to set up a ‘learning relationship’; to teach; to evaluate; to monitor professional ethical issues; to counsel; to consult and also to monitor administrative aspects. I feel that working together with these tasks in mind will allow you to feel supported as you grow and develop within your work with your clients, with a feeling that you are always moving forwards.
I have recently completed a Diploma in Online Counselling and am currently working purely online and so have honed my skills to incorporate the nuances of working online as well as to face to face.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to receive supervision.
