I hold a Certificate in OCN Supervision and currently supervise both qualified and trainee psychotherapists within a group setting or on a one-to-one basis. As with other aspects of my practice, I draw on a variety of perspectives, but my main approach is person-centred, where I gently challenge existing ideas and approaches to enrich and develop knowledge, skills and experience. I aim to provide a non-judgemental, collaborative environment where supervisees feel supported to meet all aspects of their clinical work.
Professional and personal development in supervision is rooted in an understanding that by engaging with the difficult aspects of our work with clients we can increase our self awareness, develop a healthy internal supervisor, increase our effectiveness as therapists and thereby ensure that we are providing the best possible service to our clients.
I am a Supervisor for Buckinghamshire Cruse Bereavement Care and have also volunteered as a Bereavement Counsellor since 2005, specialising in bereavement by suicide. I have a private practice and counselling room in Chesham, but am flexible and can offer sessions in the supervisee’s home if it is easier. I charge £45 per hour or £65 for one and a half hours (negotiable rates for trainees) and I can offer both time-limited or open-ended sessions.
