Saved Save profile

I am an Integrative Counsellor and Supervisor. My core counselling training integrated psychodynamic, person centered and cognitive behavioural approaches, and have several years experience working as a counsellor online (via video, live webchat and email), and over the telephone. In addition to this, I spent three years working as a counsellor privately. I spent 3 years working specifically with addiction. I also work as a  tutor on London counselling courses.

My approach to supervision is 

Integrative: I see the integrative model both as a therapy approach, and as a philosophy. It is an appropriate approach for the endless diversity of the human condition: no two clients will ever be the same, and so a way of working is needed that allows for flexible thinking and creativity. This philosophy translates well to supervision since an intersubjective perspective allows me to comfortably supervise a wide variety of counsellor approaches.

Supportive: In the caring professions, emotional fatigue and burn-out can be common. I see it as an important part of my role as a supervisor to offer much needed emotional support, and to help the supervisee to keep self care as a priority.
