I’m a highly qualified and experienced Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor with a postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Supervision.

I believe that supervision is a vital component of any therapist’s work. I offer clinical supervision to psychotherapists, counsellors and other professionals looking for this kind of invaluable space in which to examine their work.

In my experience effective supervision involves offering a space that feels safe enough to bring all aspects of our work with clients. I aim to encourage practitioners to maintain and develop confidence in their work and provide a space which accepts and allows exploration of our inevitable fallibility: a place where we can celebrate our successes but also examine the clients and cases we will certainly come across that are more difficult than others. I work from a supportive position to facilitate the therapist in handling difficult material and countertransferential issues. In this kind of space we can gain greater objectivity and a depth of understanding which is deeply beneficial both to ourselves and our clients.

As an Integrative therapist I have knowledge of, and respect for, all schools of Psychotherapy and Counselling. My Integrative model allows for many ways of working to be thought about together. When supervising I work with a process model; therefore am able to supervise all theoretical orientations.

I’m currently offering a limited number of discounted places for therapists in training.

If you would like to discuss working with me in supervision I’d be glad to hear from you, please email me at athena.m@virgin.net.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
