Saved Save profile

I provide one to one and group supervision to counsellors in training and qualified counsellors.

I have supervised therapists working across a range of settings including CAMHS, schools, hospices, voluntary agencies, therapists in private practice  and counsellors in training. I provide individual one to one and group supervision.  In the latter I can also draw upon my group facilitation skills developed as a counselling tutor at an FE college. My experience gives me an understanding of providing therapy and supervision appropriate to multiple settings and of how to support supervisees of different levels of experience and knowledge.  
I have specific interest in working with psychological trauma including sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, dissociation and domestic violence  and in attachment, so can support  therapists working with these issues with trauma informed supervision.

Having worked as a senior practitioner for a leading children's charity supporting young people who have suffered multiple disadvantage and social exclusion, I have a strong understanding of child protection, safeguarding children, multi-agency frameworks  and assertive outreach as well as common mental health conditions and emotional wellbeing issues affecting teenagers.

I have experience of client and supervisory work to support clients who are victims of crime or are involved in the criminal justice system and the needs of hard to reach groups and individuals.  I have also worked with many issues around diversity, neurodiversity and discrimination for example gender and cultural identity.  

My supervision model incorporates my original person-centred training and uses the Michael Carroll and Hawkins and Shohet models of supervision, however I have been able to work successfully with therapists of different modalities.

For trauma therapy supervision in particularly, I place a great deal of emphasis on the importance of self-care and mind and body awareness, recognising the risks of burn out and secondary traumatisation through therapeutic work.  In supervising work with trauma I follow the 3 stage generic trauma treatment model as adapted by Janina Fisher and draw on my additional training and knowledge around trauma and dissociative conditions and appropriate therapeutic approaches.   

Individual supervision can be arranged face to face, by phone or online and I can arrange venues for group supervision or provide this in house.  

I can offer fee concessions to counsellors in training, qualified volunteer counsellors or third sector agencies where there are financial constraints. I am also able to provide reports and support with college requirements for counsellors in training. 

I primarily work face to face but can also offer online and telephone supervision as an adjunct if circumstances make face to face work difficult.
