I am a UKCP Registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor. I am the Director of Rutland House Counselling & Psychotherapy Ltd, a well-established private practice based in Leicester. I am trained clinically to Masters level, having obtained an Msc in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute. I also hold a degree in Creative Expressive Therapies, I am an accredited Dialectical Behaviour Therapy practitioner and hold a Diploma in Clinical Supervision.
For me, supervision is an opportunity for professionals to meet and have space to think about work rather be in work. Supervisees may offer an account of their work, reflect on it, receive feedback, and receive guidance if appropriate. The ultimate aim of the supervision is to protect both clients and practitioners by involving an impartial third party in the work, helping to reduce the risk of serious oversight and helping the therapist concerned to reflect on their own feelings, thoughts, behaviour and general approach with the client. I passionately believe that, like therapy, the most important factor in clinical supervision is the match between supervisor and supervisee. No supervisor is right for every practitioner or group so it is important that you take your time to choose the right supervisor for you and your organisational needs.
Who Do I Supervise?
I offer organisational supervision to staff who work within health and social care settings who are at risk of burn-out, compassion fatigue, over-work and stress. I do not supervise practitioners working with children.
If you would like to speak with me about supervision, or would like to arrange an initial meeting to get a feel of working with me as your supervisor then please contact me via the email enquiry form on this website.
