I have a Diploma in Casework Supervision and have sixteen years plus experience supervising a variety of practitioners.
In this awful and difficult situation we're all currently facing, I'm letting you know I'm here and at this time I have sessions available usually within a few days.
Instead of inviting you into my therapy room in Newton-le-Willows am for now, offering supervision sessions using Skype, Zoom, Facetime and by telephone. I will be in my usual room and will do my best to help you feel that you're here with me in MY safe, comfortable and private space....my therapy room.
I'm very familiar and comfortable using these media and as long as you can be somewhere quiet and private I'm very happy to work with you in these practical and safe ways. Hopefully, we will be able to resume face-to-face sessions in the near future, but for now, I can still offer a space for you to work through your supervision needs, albeit remotely.
Fees can be paid via bank transfer, so there is no issue with handling cash nor any need to leave your home.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to talk things though to see if what I offer may be of help to you.

I offer Person-Centred supervision to individuals and groups, face-to-face, by telephone and via Skype. I work with qualified counsellors, student counsellors and a variety of supervisees, which include: youth workers; social workers; student nurses; managers; nursery staff and CBT counsellors.
I view my own regular supervision as essential for me (as well as ethically required), to freely explore all aspects of my therapeutic work in a safe, supportive and gently challenging environment. This keeps my practise fresh, vibrant and healthy. It also keeps me supported; held; challenged and enabled and ready to go wherever my clients and supervisees need me to go with them..
I have taught all levels of counsellor training, in colleges and universities, over many years. I have been told by student counsellors that working with me has sometimes "filled in some significant gaps" in understanding the theory and process of counselling and enabled greater trust not only in the counselling process: his or her client's process, but in the self of the counsellor as well. If a supervisee wishes to bring tapes for feedback, that's fine with me (I strongly encourage this!). If a supervisee wishes to use art materials, to help them describe their client or their own feelings around the client, that's fine too. They are freely available in my dedicated therapy room.
I believe it is of utmost importance, to receive high support and sometimes high challenge in supervision, but in a non-threatening and non-judgemental way. I aim to offer a safe and confidential space where my supervisees can bring all of themselves as a practitioner....the areas where further learning is necessary and also to CELEBRATE success! Who else can we share with when our clients make those 'magic-moment' connections or have 'light-bulb' experiences? Due to the confidentiality of our work, we cannot share those with anyone...except our supervisor.
No-one knows your practise as you do. No-one knows your clients like you do. I work hard to offer my knowledge and experience as supportive feedback and am ready and willing to engage in an effective, supervisory relationship.
I offer an initial meeting without charge, of 30 minutes to see if we would like to work together.
