COVID-19 UPDATE:  Due to the current situation with coronavirus, I am offering supervision via Zoom video conferencing or by telephone.  Please contact me for further information.

I qualified with a post graduate diploma in supervision in 2015 with Surrey Counselling Training.  Alongside the counselling work I do at the sixth form, I also work as a supervisor with both our trainee counsellors and those who are qualified within our team there.

Primarily I use the Inskipp and Proctor model of supervison working with the normative, formative and restorative sides to supervision with the normative attending to ethics,  formative focusing on developing the skill, knowledge and understanding of supervisees and the restorative function in supporting the supervisee in, “Discharging held emotions and recharging energies, ideals and creativity.” (Inskipp and Proctor, 1993, p6). 

In the same way as counselling, I believe that having a good working relationship is vital in the supervision process and so I aim for that to be at the heart of the way I work.

If you would like any more information or are interested in arranging a time to meet and see how we might work together then please do contact me.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Although the room I work from is on the ground floor, there is one step to enter the front door. There is also no bathroom downstairs.


I work in my counselling practice each week from Mondays to Thursdays.
