I have 15 years experience as a supervisor working across a broad range of agencies and organisations. Currently I provide supervision for an Alcohol and drugs Service, Family Crisis Team, Domestic Abuse Team, Rape &Sexual Abuse Service, Young Peoples Counselling Service, GP practice, Family Centre. I also provide supervision for counselling students and for qualified counsellors in private practice.
Please see my counselling entry to get a glimpse of my style and areas of work. I work integratively and aim to be flexible so that I can meet the needs of my supervisees which can change throughout our time of working together. As well as direct client work, supervisees often ask for some time to look at issues and themes that come up during the process. I deliver training on issues such as Anger Management, Self-harm, Violence in Teenage relationships, Sexual Exploitation, Drugs and Alcohol, Anti-Bullying, Addictions, Culture and Diversity and we are able to integrate a snapshot of some of these areas into our sessions if useful for the supervisee.
I am able to be flexible in terms of appointments and if requested can also be available at weekends. I understand how busy peoples lives can be, in particular for students who have to juggle different aspects of their lives whilst studying and often struggling to get placements and complete the hours of their course requirements.
Central to every area of my life is the relationship I have with those I come into contact with. I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Supervision.
