Supervision details

An Integrative Approach

My work is integrative, most influenced by psychodynamic theory, person centred therapy and CBT. I am also trained in relational therapy and treatment for eating disorders (CBT-E).


I am a BACP accredited integrative psychotherapist, a CBT-E qualified therapist and an ACTO registered online therapist. I have a Master’s degree (level 7) in Therapeutic Counselling. I trained in Supervision with the British Psychological Society .

My therapy practice areas:

I have experience and an interest in: 

anxiety (including panic attacks)
eating disorders
grief and loss
neurodiversity (autism, ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder OCD
relationship issues (partner, family, friends, colleagues)
self esteem / sense of self

A Safe Environment to Talk

Supervision can be a challenging space to occupy that raises power dynamics and transference issues. In my experience we all develop better in spaces where we don't feel ashamed or lesser. All therapists make mistakes and feel stuck at times. I want to make supervision a shame-free zone where both of us can talk about our vulnerabilities and errors in a way that feels as safe as possible, and allows us to stay open so we can reflect, learn and develop as practitioners.

Support with Practicalities, like Fees and Marketing

I like supporting you with practical things like managing your fees, boundary issues around fees and attendance, websites, managing expenses, ethically marketing your private practice, and working online.

We are both open to learning in the space

I will never have all the answers. But I will ask gentle questions to help you reflect and find new understandings about your clients and yourself as a therapist. Together I hope we can find ways to think constructively about how you work and interact with each unique person.


I find that relevant, well-timed psycho-education within sessions can sometimes be helpful in supervision and to clients. We will explore your use of these sorts of interventions and how you are experiencing this way of working at times.

An Online Setting

All supervision takes place online. I also work as an online therapist (I am ACTO registered and have a diploma in Online Therapy).

Keeping it current

I frequently attend trainings, conferences and read books about psychotherapy and my areas of interest, including supervision. I enjoy sharing aspects of what I’ve been learning with fellow therapists and supervisees.

Self care

Burning-out in the role and managing boundaries are important considerations for counsellors and therapists, particularly if you work in environments where you are struggling to manage self care or when working with trauma survivors or more complex mental health. I aim to supportively help you recognise and respond to signs that you might be heading towards burn-out, so you can more effectively get to a good enough  work-life balance.

Being a client too

I’ve had many years of counselling and psychotherapy myself, so I have a felt level of understanding and empathy of what it can be like to be the client.

Celebrating Growth and Transformation

I look for and celebrate the moments of change for clients as they begin to stay with difficult feelings, enjoy themselves in their life more and develop their ability to listen to themselves. In supervision we want to both celebrate clients' changing process and stay with those moments of stuckness and difficulty. 


I love reading and learning and will learn from training, books, podcasts, articles, peers and social media on therapy, and related topics. I might suggest something that you might find useful. I recognise that we all have different learning styles too, so I will try and learn what works best for you.


During training I worked in a low cost charity and in two universities working as an honorary counsellor. In my private practice, I work with adult clients who have a range of presenting issues including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, grief and los, neurodiversity (autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia) and relationship issues. As well as face-to-face work, I’ve been working online with clients since 2020.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access
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.
