Supervision details

Being an integrative therapist and lecturer, I have an awareness of many working models, however, my particular interest is in existential and outdoor/eco therapy.

I believe supervision should be a supportive space where we can discuss our thoughts and feelings about clinical work in a confidential, non-judgmental setting; I always push for a relational approach in my work and actively promote the autonomy of my supervisees.

In terms of structure, I draw inspiration from Inskipp and Proctor (2001) and tend to focus on the following: 

  • Restorative considerations - Being supportive and thinking about your  wellbeing.
  • Formative considerations - Helping and encouraging your to growth and develop as a professional.
  • Normative considerations - Monitoring and discussing the way you work, ethical practice and the way that theory underpins your practice.

The most important thing that I look for in a supervisee is a willingness to discuss the way that they, as an individual, feature in the work that they do with clients. I try to avoid the trap of focusing on narrative accounts (only talking about the client's world) as I find that there is huge value and learning to be gained from considering the relationship that exists between you both.

I have many years of experience of supervising both qualified and trainee counsellors/therapists.

It may be worth noting that I am not a fan of prescriptive or dogmatic thinking, rather, I prefer thoughtful exploration and a willingness to think outside of the box. You should also know that I am strongly against any form of conversion therapy. Additionally, I hold a neuro-affirmative position when it comes to working with neuro-divergent clients.


  • I offer a free informal chat via online video, to explore the possibility of working together (up to 30 minutes)
  • £45 concessionary rate (self-employed start-ups; trainees; low/no paid volunteers)
  • £60 per hour standard rate
