As a person-centred counselling supervisor I see supervision as a relationship where my part is to offer a safe, supportive yet challenging space in which supervisees (student or qualified) can have space to explore and reflect on themselves in relation to their counselling work.

I began offering counselling supervision in around 1989. In 1991 Elke Lambers and I set up the PCT (Britain) certificate in Person Centred Counselling Supervision which ran until 2008.

My experience as a supervisor covers both individual and group work with counsellors in a training context and  experienced counsellors. I also have many years experience of counselling and supervising counsellors in many contexts including working with men and women who have experienced sexual violence. 

With reference to the increasing amount of media attention on the community transmission of the virus COVID-19 and the likely advice regarding self isolation. I have made the decision to stop face to face supervision  for the time being but would like to offer you telephone, zoom or  FaceTime supervision. 
I do realise that this may not be ideal for you but I do hope that it will be acceptable given this particular situation.

 I offer one to one or group supervision via zoom or FaceTime and aim to bring qualities of empathy, acceptance and genuineness to our meetings.

"My major goal is to help the therapist to grow in self-confidence and to grow in understanding of himself or herself, and to grow in understanding of the therapeutic process".

My fee for Supervision is £45 per hour
