How I work in supervision

I recognise the importance of a consistent and supportive supervisory relationship and its potential to contribute to effective, safe practice, successful outcomes and professional development.   I believe that the work we do requires a demanding, continuous investment of ourselves and that too deserves to be explored, understood and reflected upon.

 I  work in the knowledge that we are relational beings: the connections we have and the feedback we get can help us find the meaning of our experience.   This alone can be surprisingly helpful to a fellow professional and, in its turn, enrich the work we do.

What matters to me is that we both take your work seriously, we have a language to explore what is happening and that we both understand the value of the exploration.  I believe the success of the supervision will pivot on our relationship and a shared conceptual framework.  I Incorporate Hawkins and Shohet Process model of supervision into my approach as a supervisor.

Theory and Practice

I work with the belief that the therapeutic relationship creates therapeutic change. My main theoretical orientation is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. Over the years I have completed professional development to enhance my therapeutic skills which include training in Transactional Analysis, Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and a specialism of working with Trauma.


I have over 10 years’ experience of working as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor in the voluntary, educational, and corporate and private sectors.  I supervise therapists who work with individuals aged 16 and over and  couples. I have experience of working with clients both long and short term and I am an associate Counsellor for many Employment Assistance Providers (EAP).

I am a Director of a successful thriving private practice in Leicester called Rutland House Counselling and Psychotherapy Ltd. I am experienced in managing a large team of therapists, completing assessments and making clinical recommendations. I also manage my own caseload of clients in private practice.

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.
