Hello! If you are looking for a warm, experienced and empowering supervisor then you have come to the right page (one of them anyway!)

I am a Person-Centred trained Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor and enjoy working with supervisees to explore and process their client work. I believe in working collaboratively, using open and honest dialogue. I can provide a safe, nurturing and supportive environment for you to explore your client work and grow as a therapist.

I work with children, young people and adults both. I have completed relevant qualifications and training in each of these areas and have 9 years experience.

I work with people in nature, and online and have completed the relevent ACTO approved training for online work. I can support therapist working in any of these environments. 

I welcome Counsellors, Psychotherapists, and trainees. I offer supervision to anyone working in a therapeutic role requiring time for reflection in order to be an ethical and effective practitioner. The elements I support supervisees with are safeguarding, ethical practice, and exploration of all aspects of the therapeutic process. 

If you would like to meet for a free 20 minute appointment to see if you would feel comfortable working with me or to discuss your needs then please contact me to arrange.

Key details

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.
