Supervision details

Supervision is a supportive space in which my aim is for you is to feel that you can bring yourself and your clinical work whilst feeling supported and appropriately challenged. I believe that trust and transparency are fundamental in this relationship and my hope would be that you feel able to bring your client work openly to this safe space. 

I am a qualified supervisor and I bring my experience as a clinical manager to the supervisory relationship. I have managed and supported a counselling team in private practice and schools for the last five years and I have been a practising psychotherapist for ten years.

As a practitioner I have a specialist interest in adult work, couple therapy and child therapy. I have supported counsellors in their development from qualifying stage upwards as they establish themselves in practice.

My own clinical experience has been in various sectors including, cancer charities, children’s centres, schools, social services agencies and private practice. My practice supports adults, couples, families and specialises in therapy with children aged 5 upwards. 

My supervision is informed by the Hawkins & Shohet 7 eyed model which is a relational and systemic model. I am also informed by the Integrated Developmental model by Stole berg & Delworth 2002. 

I have supported practitioners in practice with relational aspects of therapy, safeguarding, procedural and professional issues and their own personal and professional development.

I have experience in supporting counsellors working with children aged 5 upwards and adult therapy. I have a specialist interest as a practitioner in anxiety, trauma, relationships and family work. I am a commissioned therapist with both Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire county councils and provide therapeutic services at their request. My private practice has been established for 10 years and supports a team of full time counsellors. 

I believe in a supportive, reflective supervisory relationship in which you feel supported yet challenged to support your individual growth and development as a practitioner in your own right.

My aim is to support you in supporting your clients safely and ethically and my commitment to you is in building a trusting, transparent and warm professional relationship in support of your practice. 

I also offer supportive supervision to other professionals within the education and health sectors.

Wheelchair user access
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.

I have three comfortable counselling rooms and a lift to access.
