Hello. I am Melissa and I am so glad that you stopped by my page.I have my masters degree in counselling. I have been working as a supervisor for five years, I have also taught courses at university and taught counselling skills to counsellors in training. Supervision is a critical element of developing as a practitioner, being a supervisor is one of the greatest joys of my career. As a supervisor I am committed to your growth as a professional. I approach each supervisee with warmth and compassion. I have been trained in various theoretical orientations and have worked with mental health practitioners across the theory spectrum. I am also a qualified child and adult psychotherapist. Supervision is about YOU and your needs. These are the following topics that are often covered in supervision:

  • ​Choosing a theoretical orientation

  • Safeguarding
  • Exploring counter-transference
