Supervision details

The fundamental aim of my supervisory practice is to support counsellors and psychotherapist in their client work and to develop their skills as practitioners. I also offer supervision for those in other helping professions such as teachers, coaches, nurses and support workers. Whether it be facing difficulties with your clients, expanding your knowledge of theory or looking at the unconscious aspects of your work and therapeutic relationships, supervision allows you to process your client work in a professional, private and contained environment.  I aim to help you develop your own style and voice as a therapist and encourage the use of your own intuition to help you reach your potential. Working in the therapeutic profession is a huge undertaking and a large element of my work focuses on your well-being and preventing burn-out, something that is all too common in this industry. Although many overlaps between supervision and therapy exists , supervision requires different skill sets to those required in counselling and I strongly believe -  in an unregulated arena, it is imperative for supervisors to be formally trained and qualified. For this reason I hold a Level 6 Diploma in Clinical Supervision (CPCAB) and utilise The 7 Eyed, Cyclical and Functional models.  My therapeutic modality is strongly relational and centres around Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Attachment theories. I am also a Walk and Talk therapist. I am a member of The NCS and also have a thorough knowledge of The BACP Ethical Framework. I work both face to face and via Zoom. My fees are:  £50 for 1 hour £75 for 1.5 hours 90 for 2 hours
