I offer both individual and group supervision to therapists, both those in training and those who are qualified. I supervise therapists working with children as well as with adults. 

I have supervised therapists since 2013 and have worked with over 50 practitioners to date. These have included therapists from a variety of theoretical orientations including person-centred, psychodynamic, integrative, gestalt, cognitive behavioural therapists, art therapists and drama therapists. I have a certificate in Therapeutic Counselling Supervision from CPCAB. I am a BACP Accredited member and supervise in accordance with the BACP's Ethical Framework.

My supervisory model

All counsellors and psychotherapists are required by their accrediting bodies to consult and actively reflect upon their clinical work with an experienced supervisor on a regular basis. This relationship gives opportunity for confidential discussion of any difficulties the therapist is facing, promotes professional development and ensures that the therapist is working in line with the law and ethically in the best interests of their clients.

I am a BACP accredited, integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. I base my supervisory model on Shohet and Hawkins’* 7 eyed model combined with aspects of Page and Wosket’s** cyclical model.

I value a supportive relationship with each of my supervisees founded on the core person-centred principles of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. Past supervisees have described me as supportive, warm and approachable. From this foundation I find supervisees generally feel comfortable to be open with me in supervision and to discuss a variety of aspects of their work which they genuinely find challenging.

As a BACP accredited practitioner, I supervise in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework (2018) and applicable UK law. I am transparent in this process, sharing my thinking and the basis for it with supervisees, and encouraging discussion. I promote a spirit of joint enquiry to ethical decision making which I believe encourages supervisees to develop a practical understanding of how to use the Ethical Framework and knowledge of UK law, as well as how to use supervision, in order to weigh up ethical dilemmas themselves.

In addition to what is taught at college, I support supervisees’ development as counselling professionals by signposting a range of learning resources in response to the specific client work supervisees are presenting (including reading, online CPD, face-to-face workshops).
As an integrative practitioner I integrate theory from a number of schools of thought including person centred, psychodynamic, CBT, solution focused, mindfulness, attachment theory, systemic theory. I also use creative materials and exercises in my work (e.g. sand tray, art work, puppets) and sometimes use these with supervisees if they express an interest in working creatively and if doing so helps supervisees to reflect on their practice.

Accessibility

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.
