I have been clinical supervisor since 2010 holding a diploma in integrative supervision (BACP endorsed) working with experienced counsellors and trainees both in private, health and voluntary sector.
I enjoy working with counsellors from all areas of work but particularly enjoy working with student and trainee counsellors. They are the therapeutic workforce of the future and it is paramount they are supported and grounded in their clinical work whilst in the process of integrating practice and learning.
I am I believe a client focused calm empathic supervisor who will respectfully but appropriately challenge issues of concern and enjoy lively client discussion to the best interests of the client’s process and for the counsellors practice development.
With trainees I am used to completing supervision reports and enjoy this element of encouraging and nurturing.
In all areas of my therapeutic practice I like to hold a balance in my work of clients whether adults or young people and with supervisees whether qualified and unqualified.
