About me

My Supervision Training was under taken at The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy and is based on The Seven-eyed Supervision Process model (Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet).

Having established a long relationship with my Supervisor in Private Practice and in my work as a Step 3 High Intensity Therapist within IAPT. I place immense value on the Supervisory Relationship. This has developed over time and built to that of a valued colleague. Supervision has helped shape my practice and helped me grow professionally into the therapist I am today.  Having worked for various agencies over the years in a diverse range of  Counselling Organisations and Colleges, I have worked with appointed Supervisors, each have used a range of models and approaches which has helped me  develop my skills. In my last audit from BACP the audit team fed back to me that they had been impressed by the high level of self reflection demonstrated in my supervision examples and CPD records.

The richness of having worked  with my Clinical Supervisors  together with my previous business  knowledge ,  experience  as a Health Professional and in Occupational Health settings  informs  and equips in my Supervision Practice.

I bring all of this knowledge to help you develop as practioner and support your work, whether you work in short or long term model, in Private Practice of for an agency. It is important that you feel that I am the “right fit” for you and that we could develop a supervisory relationship.  “A supervisor never knows first or better.”

What is Supervision?

Supervision involves a two practioners and implies a code of conduct; it is a joint endeavour in which the practioner enters into a contractual arrangement to use the service of another Supervisor, a more experienced practioner, to review their own practice with their Client or Service User.  Supervision addresses and focuses on the interactions between the Supervisee and their Client or Service User, the relationships and wider systems. The aim of Supervision is to promote effective practice, to continuously develop them and address any weaknesses.   Supervision carries an element of protection and safeguarding; the supervisor is impartial in the work and allows the practioner to reflect on their approach, practice, thoughts and feelings. Supervision supports the individual and organisation; it focuses on competency and ethical practice.
