As an Integral Therapist I am uniquely trained in many complete models of therapy and use which model is most appropriate for each client at that time. This gives me a good insight into different modalities and really suits creative working which I personally love. I hope to bring this experience, creativity and understanding to my work as a supervisor. I hope to create a supportive and empowering environment for my supervisees.

My background is in mental health and I have worked in different care settings since 2004 and have a wealth of experience with different clients and issues. I currently work with adults, adolescents, children and couples.

I have completed a Certificate in Supervision and I am currently studying for a Diploma in Supervision.

I am really passionate about counselling and I love supporting other counsellors in this work. I particularly enjoy working with counsellors that are setting up or expanding their own private practice; with a thriving practice of my own I feel I am well placed to support this. My hope is to empower colleagues in their private practice work and to help them to build a self sustaining business.

My model of supervision is really a mix of theories I've studied but I lean greatly on my intuition as a therapist and supervisor. I believe that clients and supervisees have the skills they need and I hope to help someone to reach their own conclusions with support. Having said that I have worked for a great many years in high pressed positions in which I have had to make quick and important decisions around the care of clients relating to child protection issues and the like, so I am confident in taking a lead if supervisees need this at times. 

I am well supported in my own practice with 3 different supervisors. I have sought supervisors that have specialisms due to the wide variety of my work. All of my supervisors have private practices of their own; one specialises in working with children; one with working online; and all offer consultative supervision so my supervisees can be assured that their practice is in safe hands.

I work from my home office in Layer de la Haye and as a Certified Cyber Therapist I am happy to offer supervision via a secure online platform. 

Weekday, evening and weekend sessions are available.

Fees are:

45 minutes - £20

60 minutes - £30

90 minutes - £40
