I offer supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists, doctors, health professionals, and lawyers. Counselling Supervision and Occupational Supervision is a safe and confidential space for you to process your client case material.

Counselling Supervision is a dynamic, collaborative space in which to think about, and feel, your client work. For counsellors and psychotherapists supervision is an essential and integral part of our work. Many other professions are starting to recognise and experience the benefit of having Occupational Supervision, a dedicated safe and confidential space in which to process client or patient work. 

 It is where we keep our clients best interests at the forefront of our discussion but also where we can recognise and acknowledge our feelings and responses to the narratives we hear from those we work with.  In Counselling Supervision and Occupational Supervision I will support you to be courageous in your client work, and gently challenge you in this too.  Supervision is a space of growth and transformation. I work in the dialogue between Psychodynamic and Person-Centred modalities, encouraging you to see the connections  between past and present, and the patterns in your client's experiences.  We will observe parallel processes occurring within our own sessions, allowing you to look at your work through a different lens.

​Much of my clinical work has been with high risk client groups (prison, substance use with co-occurring physical and mental health issues) providing me with a wealth of experience in working with safeguarding issues, and I can support you to find ethical ways forward should you be faced with complex safeguarding situations or ethical dilemmas.

​My areas of experience and particular specialisation within supervision are:

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.
