How I work
My training is psychodynamic and group analytic, however I have experience of and enjoy supervising therapists from other orientations as well.

As a clinician  I have often worked in settings which have required me to develop skills and understanding about working eclectically and  briefly.  I am aware of different settings requiring different responses and client expectations. In private practice I have worked with patients open-endedly and analytically.

I see the role of supervisor as providing a 'third' perspective to the relationship of the client and counsellor/therapist.  I enjoy working with a range of supervisees and their different needs, clients, settings an roles. I am particularly interested in helping practitioners explore the dynamics, especially those hidden, between themselves and their client/s.

My training has included organisational dynamics and relations and so I am also concerned with the influence the setting has on the work and how the individual practitioner is able to take up their role.


My normal fees for individuals are; fortnightly £50-£70, monthly £60 - £80 

group supervision and reflective practice group fees vary, please enquire.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
