Whether you are experienced, recently qualified or still training/just starting client work I am adaptable; providing the multiples roles necessary for a good supervisory experience. There is more than one way for clinical supervision to be conducted, though whichever way, I am: open, approachable, kind, and empathic as a supervisor.  I offer support between contracted supervision meetings; this is also reviewed regularly as your needs develop.

I provide clinical supervision to counsellors/psychotherapists:-

  • Still in training
  • Recently qualified
  • Working towards accreditation
  • Peer supervision
  • Groups supervision
  • Agency supervision

Supervision is available at The Octagon, Taunton or Kingston St Mary.

  • Individual,
  • Group (by arrangement)
  • Telephone
  • Skype

I strive to embrace the following principles in my work:

  • To establish a relationship with my supervisees.
  • To understand and implement, when necessary, any one or more of the multiple roles of a supervisor such as a consultant, mention, teacher, model, counsellor or evaluator.
  • To monitor supervisees development
  • To be flexible and try to meet the different needs of each supervisee; adapting my role and style to meet each supervisees' learning requirements and level.
  • To monitor the supervisees approach to clients; offering guidance and to be supportive through supervisees ongoing learning and adjustments when required.
  • To support supervisees in maintaining a quality of service to their clients.  
  • To work within a supervision model/s giving structure to the supervisory process.
  • To undertake regular supervisory supervision.
  • To continue with my own professional development.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified


Flexible availability - please enquire. I work from my own practice and therefore I have total flexibility for work hours if times are required outside of a recognised working week.
