I am an experienced and qualified counselling supervisor, (OCN Certificate of Counselling Supervision (2020). I have experience of supervising both trainees and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists. I describe myself as an Integrative Psychotherapist, working primarily from a psychodynamic and relational stance.

I believe that supervision is a collaboration between supervisor and supervisee. I believe that supervision should be supportive, which includes helping the supervisee to develop reflective thinking, encouraging responsibility and challenging when necessary. I also believe that empathy and having an understanding of both the supervisee's and client's processes is very important for a beneficial supervisory relationship.

I provide a confidential space for counsellors and psychotherapists to discuss their client work as well as the processes which may be encountered within the triad of client-counsellor/therapist-supervisor.

I am able to provide reports or other admin if required by trainees but these need to be discussed in advance. 

I suggest an initial session of at least 50 minutes to discuss possible supervision requirements.

This allows you to explain what you expect from supervision, and for me to explain how I work. We can discuss both our modalities of working and your client group and see if this seems compatible. This is also an opportunity to discuss and collaborate on a good working agreement. This might include a detailed contract regarding practicalities such as frequency of meetings and venue, timing of sessions, missed sessions, holidays, emergency arrangements etc.

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.

Wheelchair user access


Due to the currently COVID-19 pandemic and government guidelines, I am currently working online via Zoom or Skype and can be flexible with timings for new clients.
