My aspiration as a Supervisor is to offer supervisees a non-judgmental and collaborative working relationship which seeks to support and supplement your counselling practice.
My core training at the University of Chester focussed on the Person Centred approach. Since qualifying as a counsellor my subsequent studies and professional development in other modalities such as CBT mean that I would now consider myself to be an integrative practitioner.
As well as working in private practice I have experience of working in a multi-agency setting as a Probation Alcohol Counsellor, and have also managed the delivery of a counselling service at a local Mind association. These roles have given me a broad experience in a variety of settings. As a consequence I have gained an understanding of what it is like to work in environments where, potentially, conflicting demands and pressures are involved.
I work from an office on Town Walls, Shrewsbury on Fridays and Saturdays, and in the TF2 area of Telford during the rest of the week, where I can offer evening appointments if required.
My fees for counselling supervision for qualified therapists are £50/session, and I offer concessionary rates for student and newly qualified counsellors.
I also offer a free initial consultation lasting up to an hour to discuss with you what you would want from a supervisory relationship, and how we might work together.
