Supervision details

Clinical Supervision

I have a Level 6 Diploma in Individual and Group Clinical Supervision and have been providing supervision since 2015. I offer supervision to Counsellors and Psychotherapists, as well as individuals and staffing bodies in organisations who's work either requires or would benefit from the support and holding space of the group supervision process. I have also trained as a supervisor for Mindfulness Based Interventions.

I am a Clinical Supervisor at Headstrong Counselling for trainee Counsellors, at Pilgrims, Wisdom and Demelza Hospices for qualified Counsellors and for Counsellors at all different stages in their career working in various settings, in my Clinical Supervision private practice. I really enjoy the privilege of working with and supporting peers in this way.

My Orientation and Therapy Practice​

I trained within the NHS for my PG Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling, which had a Humanistic, Person Centred, Relational base and also gave consideration to Psychodynamic, Cognitive and Existential models. I am also trained in and have extensive experience practising and delivering Mindfulness and Compassion based approaches in the private, public and third sectors, and therefore emphasise the qualities of kind-awareness, embodied presence, the felt-sense and a compassionate focus in my work.

I currently work with adults in full time private practice, as well as run workshops and courses in mindfulness, compassion and mental health awareness. In the past I worked with students in an FE college and addicts in a drug and alcohol service within HM's Prisons. Prior to that I had a career in education and training as a school teacher, adult education teacher and in educational management and my undergraduate degree was in Philosophy.

View on Clinical Supervision
I see supervision as a space where peers come together to openly explore work in a way that helps support your professional and ethical integrity as well as your personal and professional growth and development. The overall aim is to enable you to be of most benefit to your clients within the contexts being worked with, best you can, following your preferred model of orientation.

I take a person-centred approach regarding supervisees setting the agenda for what they want to bring and explore each supervision session, but also offer reflections, suggestions and challenges as the need emerges in a collaborative and collegiate spirit.

I use a number of integrated supervision models to help guide us in this process and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework and the guidance in the BACP Supervision Competence Framework.

Regardless of the particular model, I see the supervision space as one that can address three areas:

  • Exploring your client work and all that entails.
  • Room for you, what you are holding and how the work is impacting you.
  • Any administrative, procedural, ethical or managerial considerations that impact your work.

Next Steps
Commonly, I would welcome a no obligation phone call in the first instance, to find out a little about your background, training and experience and what your current supervisory needs are, also for us to both get an initial sense of how we might work together.  

If we both feel it is good to proceed, I will then send over a draft Supervision Working Agreement for you to review and make suggestions about if you have any, plus practicalities about payment for sessions. 

In the first session, if we have done the getting to know each other bit previously, you would then be welcome to bring anything you feel the need to bring and we can begin the exploration together from there.


1:1 Supervision -  £60 per 50 minute session or £90 per 90 minute session with concession spaces available for trainee Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

Group Supervision - The fee will be dependent on the specific arrangement, so please do get in touch to discuss, thank you.

To make an inquiry please do give me a call or fill out the contact form here and I will get back to you at my next available opportunity.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
