Saved Save profile

I work with trainee and fully qualified counsellors.  In addition, I provide external supervision to individuals in organisations in the private sector.

Supervision promotes self-care, continual learning and professional and personal development. The supervisory relationship is a collaborative one and as such, it gives us the chance to stand back and reflect upon the therapeutic process and the issues arising from our client work within the safety of a ‘therapeutic triad’.

Whilst our client work can be incredibly rewarding and satisfying, it can also lead to stress and burn-out. For example, the emotional disturbance that we absorb from our clients can cause us to doubt ourselves and our ability to function in our work. My role as supervisor is to balance support with challenge to create a safe, supportive space in which the disturbance is felt again, reflected upon and learnt from.

Other factors may also be causing us to feel overwhelmed, drained and unable to work at our best. These could include pressures put upon us by the organisation and the society we work in, or problems we’re experiencing in our private lives.

I offer the core conditions to my supervisees and strive to provide supervision in an environment which is positive, supportive, and validating.  I use the Hawkins and Shohet '7-eyed Model' as framework for the supervision.

I offer discounted rates to counselling students.
