Clinical Supervision and friendly, professional support for your practice from a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor.

With long experience of working as a clinical supervisor with the NHS in Secondary Care, for therapists in private practice, for third sector voluntary agencies and organisations; I feel that I have a lot to offer in terms of not only counselling supervision but also where the need for onward referral for Mental Health issues is concerned.  Also where organisational demands cross over the supervision role - policies and procedures as they affect the client work.

I am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor including group supervision.

My practice has included supervision of NHS therapists, Doctors, trainee Psychiatrists, Community Psychiatric Nurses, Chartered Clinical Counselling Psychologists, NHS Drug and Alcohol therapists, Counsellors and Psychotherapists in private practice, IAPT therapists, Third sector voluntary and GP referred organisations (YMCA Counsellors, Barnardo's, Off the Record young persons Counselling service, Wessex Cancer, McMillan Cancer Counsellors, Bereavement Counselling Charity, Portsmouth Counselling Service for general counselling).  

I am passionate about good and effective supervision tailored to the individual's needs or level of experience and training.  

I love to grapple with an ethical dilemma and see them as opportunities to grow.  I have had three responses published in the BACP Journal, Therapy Today, Dilemmas column, so at the very least I must be controversial!

Please call me for a chat about what you want and I will be delighted to offer any help or assistance possible.

Covid statement!  Before Covid, many counsellors were of the opinion that remote therapy or Supervision over video links like Skype, or FaceTime were less effective, but as we have all adapted to social distancing, in the same way that people have discovered that they can work just as well from home as the office, more and more great work is being done safely over media platforms like FaceTime, Zoom, Watsapp with encrypted (so confidential) video calls. Where before, I would perhaps only offer a phone session as a last resort we now routinely find phone sessions can be really intense and useful.  Hence I offer telephone and video sessions.  For those who prefer to work face to face, I have confidential and covid friendly consulting rooms in Southsea where social distancing is achievable and every effort is made to seperate clients effectively so hygeine can be maintained.  As we move through Tier 4, access is reduced and we will resume face to face sessions as soon as we can!  As I cannot maintain this level of care on the Isle of Wight, Island clients and supervisees can only be accepted remotely at this time.
