Hi, I'm Chris and I provide supervision to those working in the helping professions, usually but not exclusively counsellors and psychotherapists.

Hello and a warm welcome to all

I welcome supervisees from all backgrounds both personally and professionally.  I am very passionate about supervision, I feel it is a vital ingredient for all professional helpers. 

Finding a Supervisor who is right for you

I gain enormous satisfaction working with both new and experienced helping professionals.  As an integrative relational psychotherapist my focus is always on client before theory, experience and present-moment, before therapeutic ideology.   My own experiences of receiving supervision have greatly informed how I now supervise others.  It is vital to have a theoretical storehouse from which to use within therapy and supervision, and my training is never-ending - I'm even doing a PhD.  But, when professionals put theory before experience, ideology before reflexive attention, the client feels misheard and the therapeutic relationship breaks down.  I have experienced this and heard countless stories of this same pattern emerging time and again.

The Working Alliance

By offering you support and empathy and by providing a friendly and relaxed ear, the supervisory relationship can be a wonderful thing.  My training and my experience of psychotherapy and supervision provide a variety of ways that I can support you.  

I look forward to hearing from and please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.
