I am trained in Peter Hawkins and Robin Shoet’s Seven Eyed Model of Supervision and work as an integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist in private practice.  I recently took the decision to focus my work with on-line clients, using video link and/or telephone, though I do have extensive experience of face to face work.

I see supervision as a place to consolidate professional practice and support your way of working with each client, in order to ensure that you are being the most potent you can be as a therapist.  I see it as a place of mutual respect, safety and professional development, a place to grow and gain in both confidence and competency in your practice. I bring encouragement and support, a friendly listening ear, a keen analytical mind, alongside an intuitive response and creative thinking regarding you and your practice. 

Supervision with me ensures that you are working in a boundaried, potent, self-reflective and conscientious way,  according to your professional bodies’ ethical guidelines.

The first supervision session will be about identifying what you need as a supervisee, how I might provide that, and to be sure that we can work productively together.  I offer this as a complementary half hour.  Following that my supervision fees are:

60 minutes £50  

90 minutes £70
