Supervision is essential to the provision of safe, ethical and competent therapeutic practice.

I adopt an integrative and flexible approach to supervision so I can work with therapists of many different modalities, focusing on your needs rather than sticking rigidly to one theoretical framework.

If you're in training
Supervision is an integral part of your training, together with formal teaching, research, practice and personal therapy. When working with trainees, I not only have a responsibility to you and your clients, I am also accountable to your training provider.

Our work will focus on both your personal and professional development, support your learning and ensure your clients receive the best possible care as you grow in competence, creativity, compassion and confidence.

With students, I adopt the Integrated Development Model of Supervision, which considers supervision at three levels:

  • Level 1: You've just started your training, you're highly motivated yet you may feel anxious, especially as I have to evaluate your practice
  • Level 2: Typically you will experience fluctuating levels of confidence and motivation, which is often linked to how 'successful' you feel your work with clients is
  • Level 3: Towards the end of your training, you're likely to feel much more confident and consistently motivated, balancing empathy with objectivity, and able to use your own experiences, thoughts and feelings in your therapeutic work

I will support you every step of the way.

If you're a qualified therapist
Regular supervision is a requirement for all counsellors and psychotherapists. But don't think of it as a chore. It's a valuable way of 'checking in' to ensure you remain grounded in your practice and therapeutic process, maintain professional and ethical boundaries, develop your knowledge, both theoretically and practically, as well as considering 'self care'.

Depending on your skills, knowledge and experience - and what you bring to supervision at any given time - I may be your:

  • 'Teacher' - sharing knowledge or giving direction
  • 'Counsellor' - helping you identify your blind spots, countertransference, etc
  • 'Consultant' - offering guidance and support

Fees
Fees start at £60 for every 50 minutes of supervision.
