I offer supervision to qualified psychotherapists/counsellors, students in training, and other professionals who feel they would benefit from further personal and professional support.
I see my aim as twofold; to support you to bring yourself as fully as possible to the therapeutic relationship so that you can use your skills and experience in service of your client’s wellbeing, and to facilitate your growth as a professional and as a person.
I believe that the key to this is creating an environment where you can share experiences, reflect on your choices, and develop your understanding of yourself, your practice, theory and research, and how these interconnect for you and inform your own professional philosophy.
This approach means that I feel comfortable to supervise practitioners working with any theoretical approach, although I practice from a person-centered perspective. My supervision training included a focus on psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral concepts as well as systemic approach.
As with therapy, I see supervision as relationship in action, something co-created and collaborative. I am passionate about the values and ethics which underpin therapeutic work and how these shape the supervisory relationship, the therapeutic relationship, placement settings and service delivery.
I have provided supervision to forensic psychology students, drama therapists, as well as counsellors/psychotherapists. I spent four years managing a counselling service offering low-cost 1:1 and group therapeutic support to women in Nottingham and the surrounding area before becoming self employed.
My fees are £50 per hour, I am happy to discuss this further as there is sometimes potential to negotiate or I may know of other supervisees seeking groups which can reduce cost. I have a rooms in Nottingham, and Loughborough, location would also depend on group size, please contact me for further information.
