I have 15 years of experience as a Supervisor. My way of supporting and challenging facilitates the development of psychotherapists and counsellors, enabling you to find a way of working that both builds on your existing training and your particular style and gives you additional perspectives and other dimensions to integrate into your practice.
I see many trainees and practitioners from different psychotherapy and counselling orientations. This gives me broad and varied insight into the different experiences students go through in their training and more experienced practitioners go through in their practice.
I bring an integrative perspective to my work, both as therapist and supervisor, which values the strengths of the various approaches without overlooking their shadow aspects and disadvantages.
Needless to say, I am committed to my own further development, an ethical and professional framework and to raising the quality of therapeutic practice and understanding.
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
