I am an Accredited Registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and subscribe to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Practice a Post Graduate Diploma in Supervision and a PGCE teaching qualification and a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. I have been supervising since 1996 and my integrative approach and training enable me to draw upon theories grounded in the Person Centred and Humanistic philosophies. My aim is to provide a safe therapeutic environment in which we both make a commitment of time and energy to each other through our decision to work together, a place where deeper thinking, challenges, warmth, and transparency underpin the relationship.
My role as your Supervisor will be about managing the journey we take together, our hopes, fears and passions for the work we do and an active space where reflection and reflectivity are valued highly. Together we will I hope create opportunities where clients will be at the heart of our sessions, sharing a purpose to develop an environment and a presence where clients feel encouraged to explore and discover aspects of themselves they may not yet fully understand. I feel sure the work will be varied and I hope a learning experience and space where ideas, values, thoughts and feelings will be respected and encourage to grow from those initial seeds of awareness to the bounty of full fruition. The purpose, functions and tasks of supervision will differ according to the context in which you work and we will meet the challenges this brings together.
