Supervision details

Supervision has played an important part in developing my own skills as a therapist and now I am at a stage in my own development as a therapist to develop this area of my work. I am enthusiastic and bring my rich experience as an educator and trainer of teachers to my developing supervisory role. I have supervision for this role.  My work in supervision will support you to work ethically with a client group  appropriate to your development as a therapist.  Whilst I am trained as a gestalt psychotherapist, I have experience of working alongside therapists of other modalities to understand what might be similar and different in approaches, and what we can learn from each other in service of the clients we work with. Above all, it feels important to me to understand  how you bring yourself into supervision and how you develop each therapeutic relationship. I will encourage you, support your awareness,  work with the themes in your work and work with relational depth. I respect  the challenges you encounter  and will work alongside you in the growing edges of your work in a caring, nurturing and confidential safe space.  I work in a dialogic and embodied relational way paying attention to the here-and-now, body process and the societal impact of the wider field. I am also open to working with the arts in supervision, if it feels right for you. I offer individual and small group supervision and my fee is £40 per hour. I can offer a reduced rate of £35 an hour to students in counselling/ psychotherapy training.  I work from a dedicated space in York (walking distance from York City Centre)  which is  easily accessible from the Monks Cross Park and Ride Bus Service ( No.9). There is parking and disabled access. At this time of the Covid-19 I am working online, which opens up possibilities for those not living in this region. My email is: My telephone is: 07981381581 If you would like to leave a message, we can go  from here with the possibility to arrange an initial meeting. From my experience, I respect that finding the right supervisor at the right time is important.
