Free Introductory Meeting via Zoom
I am an experienced Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor, offering both individual and group supervision.
I work from my practice in the peaceful, rural setting of Brill and can offer you a warm safe, non- judgmental space to bring any client work that needs exploring, which we will do collaboratively, in a supportive environment.
My main area of expertise is in counselling older children and young people, something I have been doing for over a decade, although I have worked with ages 8-80 years. I have supervised both individuals and groups, trainees and fully qualified professionals, for a number of years.
Clinical Supervision: I can offer you experiential knowledge of Transactional Analysis to help you reflect on your client work, and Psychodynamic theory to illuminate any relationships within. I have an abundance of strategies from tried and tested creative techniques to T.A, C.B.T and Mindfulness strategies to aid you in your client work and in more fully understanding yourself.
My supervision model is an integrative one. My Core model is the creative and collaborative 'Cyclical Model' (Page & Wosket 2015) into which I integrate the Restorative element of the Functional Model (Inskipp & Proctor 1993) to facilitate disclosure and confidence building, and the eyes of the Seven Eyed Model (Hawkins& Shohet 2012) to more fully understand the depth of relational connections between Client- Counsellor- Supervisor and any external stakeholders, and to aid in my personal reflections as a Supervisor.
While our focus will always be on your clients, it will also be on strengthening you both as a person and as a therapist and thus, empowering you in your work. In essence, I see my role as ‘to set the stage, to ask the right questions, to lead the Supervisee subtly down the path to their discovery.’ (Borders 2009:201).
Non- clinical supervision: I also offer non- clinical supervision for those in non- clinical roles, for example, in Education or Social Work. I have a strong connection to the Education sector, having worked in this field for 12 years, in a variety of roles, from SEN T.A; Teacher; Mentor; Anti- bullying Co- ordinator and Counsellor to students, teachers and support staff. I have facilitated groups and can offer 1:1 or group supervision via Zoom or in- workplace session.
Online Supervision: At the moment, I am offering supervision via online platforms. I am happy to offer top- up supervision of an hour per month if you are already getting individual 1:1 supervision elsewhere.
Free introductory session: Do contact me for a free, no obligation, introductory session in which we can assess whether we can form a positive and productive, working relationship for you and your clients.
Feel free to contact me for further details; I will look forward to hearing from you and beginning a fruitful ‘learning alliance’ together. (Page& Wosket 2015:08).

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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
