The foundation of my supervision practice is based on a simple premise – I’m going to offer you space. The work we do as practitioners is hard, I’m offering to hear you. Beyond that of course is a lot more, I will offer a space which is..

  • Collaborative
  • Reflective
  • Expressive
  • Restorative
  • Inquisitive

Supervision with me is about replenishing your resources and honouring the work that you do as well as providing a space for ethical decision making and looking at your development and meeting your professional needs. I’m a person centred therapist but welcome working with others from different therapeutic perspectives.

The experience that I bring with me is varied – including private practice, third sector and charity work. I’ve also experience of being self employed, both in private work and in my previous career. In particular I’ve worked with clients outside for a number of years, offering outdoor therapy / ecotherapy / walk and talk and am passionate about this area of practice.

Practicalities:

I’m based in Shropshire and have access to a private woodland space for supervision. Alternatively we can work online, using various platforms or meet in rooms in either Shrewsbury or Telford.

As well as traditional monthly or fortnightly sessions I’m happy to work on a more infrequent basis or even ad-hoc or one-off sessions. For example if you’re looking to examine elements around outdoor therapy or need a session whilst your regular supervisor is away just get in touch.

I work only with those working with adults, and at present am not taking on any trainees.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

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.

As well as working from rooms which are accessible for those with mobility issues I also can work from an accessible woodland. Let me know if you would like more details
