MNCS (Acc). Stress & Anxiety/ Bereavement Counsellor

Supervision details

If you are looking for a professional and friendly supervisor that can support you, I would like to help either online via Zoom or face to face in my office in Bournemouth. I am qualified and experienced as a supervisor to level 7. I offer individual or small group supervision. 

My primary approaches these days are CBT, EMDR and Person-Centred work. I also practice as a hypnotherapist, business and life coach, and I am a teacher/trainer for hypnotherapists and counsellors to level 5.

I'm a retired nurse, and I have had my own business, Awaken the Change,  for over 15 years. I do mainly brief work, although I do have some long-term clients.

I specialise in anxiety issues and bereavement and loss. I worked for Cruse as a bereavement counsellor, supervisor and trainer for about 13 years.

I do not counsel young children or families.

I also provide supervision and mentoring for other therapists and hypnotherapists.

In addition, if you need support with your business, getting more clients and personal development, I can help with that as well because I'm also a mentor, coach and trainer. I run affordable CPD training events for therapists in Bournemouth or online.  I have also published a book called CPD made Easy: 55 Ways to continuing professional development for therapists and the helping professionals. You can find this on Amazon.

Please contact me for further information. T. 01202 248468 /07982258376

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
