Keeping clients at the centre of the work is key to my approach as a supervisor as I offer fellow counsellors and psychotherapists collaborative support in their client work, development and self- care.
My original training was humanistic and I qualified as a supervisor in 2016, gaining the CPPD Diploma in Clinical Supervision. On- going training has meant that I now integrate ideas from other orientations such as CBT, attachment, and schema therapy into my humanistic approach. I am flexible in how I work and seek to build a supportive vibrant, and at times challenging supervisory relationship. I always enjoy the opportunity to spend time exploring and reflecting with a fellow counsellor.
I have worked in schools, GP practices, charities and in private practice. I offer supervision on a one- to -one basis to both qualified and student counsellors. I facilitate group supervision for student counsellors and offer one - to- one supervision to safe- guarding officers in an FE setting.
I have experience of teaching counselling at all levels and am currently a tutor on the CPCAB Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
I am able to offer face to face supervision in a Covid- safe environment as well on- line supervision.
