Supervision details

I work collaboratively with supervisees through focusing and learning, being responsive throughout to your needs. Supervision is a place where it’s good to discuss what troubles us, explore concerns, disclose personal issues, explore general practice and theoretical issues. A sense of freedom comes when learning and exploring, to find ways back to trusting ourselves through shared understandings of what helps. I believe through trust and feeling safe we try new ideas; our self-determination grows and valuing uncertainty grows.

I offer supervision in a collaborative manner, assisting supervisees to develop their individual needs, whilst providing, supportive, educative and normative function. Assisting in identifying strengths and areas for development and encouraging supervisees to set their own objectives.

I enjoy working with trainees, to share what I have enjoyed throughout my own supervision from when I was a trainee.

I qualified as a counsellor and psychotherapist and went on to specialise in sex addiction therapy. In that time, I also trained as a relational therapist and a psychosexual therapist. In my practice I work across all these areas and supervise work across them. I was a founding trustee of the Counselling in Prisons network, have been Vice Chair of ATSAC and STOPSO. I have provided training to Manchester NHS, BASHH, SMMGP, COSRT, ATSAC and University counselling services.

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.
