I practice as a counselling supervisor, offering individual supervision. My approach is Humanistic and Person-Centred.
I have over 18 years counselling experience, working with both adults, couples and young people. I was the Counselling Manager of a youth agency for several years, so I have extensive knowledge and experience of offering counselling to adolescents, including in a school setting. I now run and practice within Lemon Grove Counselling & Therapy, an independent counselling agency, founded with a fellow counsellor.
I am passionate about counselling and supervision and resonate strongly with the following quote taken from the book 'Passionate Supervision' by Robin Shohet:
"I am inviting the reader to look at how fear and love might enter the supervisory relationship. Fear can pose sometimes as anxiety, anger, shame, preoccupation with safety, rigid adherence to beliefs, rules and procedures. These are defences that are rarely useful and keep us separated. I believe that fear covers love, a love that is not ephemeral, but the naturally compassionate essence of who we are. Passionate supervision offers a space to bring fear into consciousness and dissolve it so we can enter into a space where loving presence can bring healing for supervisor, supervisee and client."
