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 with experienced counsellors. I have many years experience of counselling and supervising counsellors in different contexts including working with men and women who have experienced sexual violence.
I offer one to one or group supervision via zoom 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
