I am a trained supervisor working in the Brighton area

I offer clinical supervision to both trainee and fully qualified counsellors working from a psychodynamic framework. I can also provide supervision to staff in organisations in need of clinical supervision.

I see the purpose of supervision as providing a safe, containing space in order to help you find what you need to reflect on client work, working through anxieties or difficulties, celebrating successes, thinking creatively and growing as a practitioner. In my work I like to think about the interaction of various different relationships: client/counsellor, client/supervisor, counsellor/supervisor and all of these within an organisational context; looking at interlocking relationships in this way can really help to explore the client work from many different perspectives.

Whilst I work primarily from a psychodynamic perspective, I am also trained in CBT and am open to ideas drawn from other modalities. I currently work as a supervisor at the Rock Clinic and the University of Sussex; I also work as a counsellor at both of these organisations. In the past I have also worked at Rise and at the University of Brighton. Prior to training as a counsellor, I worked as a team leader/supervisor and trainer in the corporate world, and also have experience working within the charitable sector, which I feel has given me invaluable insight into organisational dynamics and their impact on client work.

If you’re interested in supervision with me, please feel free to call me for an informal chat to discuss your requirements.

Fees: £45 per hour for qualified counsellors
           £40 per hour for trainee counsellors

Supervision can be organised on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.

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.
