My supervision career began in 2007 and I completed a 2 year Person-centred supervision diploma at Temenos in Sheffield in 2009.
I worked for Nottinghamshire County Council Young People's Counselling Team, as an organisational supervisor for 4 years from 2007 to 2011, and now work independenly in private practice. I supervise a large number of behaviour and pastoral support staff for a large secondary school and am agency supervisor for Talkzone young people's counselling service in Worksop.
I have varied and extensive experience of supervising qualified and trainee counsellors as well as health and education professionals. I offer individual and group supervision. My work with supervising therapists in agencies includes: Rape Crisis, Incest and Sexual Abuse (ISAS), domestic violence, probation and prison service (Local Authority), Education, Primary Care Trust, bereavement and hospice work, MIND and Women's Aid.
Person-Centred supervision encompasses the philosophy and theory of person-centred therapeutic practice. I feel passionately that this style of supervision encourages the therapist to be open, and confident in bringing all aspects of themselves and their work to supervision. I know how vital it is to find a supervisor you are able to be completely honest and open with and who will support you in a way that enables you to develop your own individual style of working. I encourage those seeking a supervisor to meet several people before they make a final decision - it's really important you find the right person.
