I am passionate about the importance of good quality supervision and since qualifying have developed a specialism in clinical supervision, gaining a postgraduate qualification in CBT Supervision from King's College London and have attended numerous supervision training programmes and workshops. 

I am very proud to be one of only a few BABCP Accredited Supervisors in Wales. 

I have much experience of supervising a range of professionals including medics, psychologists, CBT therapists, trainee therapists, nurses and OTs.

I can provide supervision to practitioners working with adults and adolescents working across a range of settings (e.g. Primary and Secondary Mental Health services, private practice) and can also provide supervision of other practitioners' supervisory practice. 

Group supervision and consultation sessions are also available - contact me to discuss. 

I will adapt my supervisory style to the needs of the supervisee, e.g. utilising a more CBT-focused approach or providing a more integrative style of supervision that draws from other therapeutic models including psychodynamic, compassion-focused and humanist approaches. This is discussed when setting up supervision at the start. 

I also have experience in providing CBT supervision training and currently provide training to professionals working in the NHS. 

I place much value in developing a good quality supervisory relationship and regularly use supervisory feedback measures to help ensure the supervision is focused and meeting the needs of my supervises. I regularly receive supervision for my own clinical and supervisory practice.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified

I run a virtual clinic and offer appointments by video call (Skype, FaceTime) or by phone.
