I offer Clinical supervision for those in the helping professions
- alternative therapists
- nhs workers
I believe that good supervision is an essential component of a healthy working life, nourishing the practitioner as well as developing best practice for the benefit of clients. I aim to provide supervision that is
- supportive - and also challenging when/if appropriate
- sensitive to the needs of practitioners at different stages of development
I have completed a recognised training in Mindfulness-Based Supervision (OPAL) and am registered as a supervisor. I am an accredited psychotherapist, with many years experience in a variety of settings - private practice, NHS, Higher Education, and voluntary organisations. I have held mentoring and training roles and was a tutor on Open University modules in counselling and psychotherapy for 8 years.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
