Welcome!

I am a qualified Supervisor and an experienced and skilled Counsellor.  I offer individual Supervision to both trainee and qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists and other Health Care Professionals.  I have a private therapy room in Morchard Bishop, Crediton in beautiful Devon.

My main Supervision Model is the Seven Eyed Model (Hawkins and Shohet).

Clinical Supervision gives you the space to explore your client work, reflect on how you are working and look at different models and ways of being with clients, to enhance your therapeutic work.  It gives you the opportunity to identify things which may impact on both you and your clients and your relationship. 

I believe an important part of my role is to get to know you as a person and as a therapist, developing our working alliance, offering you encouragement and support with your client work, and referring to the BACP Ethical Framework, keeping you and your clients safe.

Training and Experience

I initially trained in Psychology and Pastoral Care, using my skills to support homeless children and vulnerable families in London.  I taught Psychology and whilst working in the Public Sector for many years, I had the opportunity to obtain Management & Supervision qualifications.

My Therapeutic Model is Gestalt and I hold qualifications to an advanced level.  I am qualified in CBT and Transactional Analysis.  I completed my counselling training at the Iron Mill College in Exeter and the Heartwood Institute in Dartington. 

I am a Registered Member of the BACP and fully insured. 

During my Counselling training, I worked for a low cost Counselling Agency in Mid Devon for several years, supporting both young people and adults, and in addition, in a Family Therapy Clinic, as a Family Reflector.  I provided supervision and mentoring for a Young People's Charity: working with young people and schools, and until recently, I have been supporting older adults with dementia and anxiety. 

I believe that my extensive training and experiences have given me valuable insight and knowledge into many different areas that impact on clients and counselling work.

Accessibility

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
