I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred Supervision from Temenos. 

I have extensive experience of the provision of Supervision in a number of different services including staff counselling services in the public sector, an FE/HE college, in a counselling service for young people, and at Nottingham Counselling Service.  In my private practice at home I have supervised counsellors working in a wide range of settings including Primary Care, IAPTs, NottsSVSS, voluntary sector agencies, Hospices, bereavement services, university/college services, and private practice including a range of Employment Assistance Programme work.   I am also provide  2nd tier supervision of other supervisors.  Whilst my supervision training was Person-Centred I have supervised the work of supervisees from a wide range of theoretical approaches.

As a Supervisor I aim to offer an environment in which supervisees feel free and supported to explore all that is relevant in their work as a counsellor.  This may include: their clients and client issues; the counsellor/client relationship; the context in which counselling is taking place; the counsellor’s wellbeing, competence, resources and development;  the impact of what may be happening in the supervisee’s life on their practice and the supervisory relationship with me. 

 Supervision may also involve at times:  an exploration of counselling theory with links to practice; tussling with ethical issues; identifying development needs or the need for personal counselling and of course, celebrating success. 

I see supervision as primarily a consultative relationship, and a space for review, reflection and development.   As a person-centred practitioner the relationship is fundamental to me, and I work hard to develop open, honest, and trusting relationships with supervisees. 

I value and recognise the different contexts - social, cultural, and personal, in which we all live our lives and how this may impact upon the practice of supervisees and their clients.

As a supervisor I am happy to work in a variety of ways, listening to taped work and for trainee counsellors, exploring their counselling in response to particular course requirements. I am also happy to work with counsellors in all that they need to do for future accreditation.

I charge £55 per hour, and offer some concessions
