I am passionate about encouraging a counsellor's development and facilitating their growth and aim to create a trustworthy and supportive environment where supervisees can feel safe to share their client work and where we can explore challenges, blind spots, vulnerabilities and celebrate success.
I have over 15 years experience in supervising both trainee and qualified counsellors and as placement co-ordinator in a University Counselling Service, I have supervised and written many competency reports for trainee counsellors whose work I have supervised.
I undertook a substantial 18 month long Post Graduate Integrative Supervision training at the University of Manchester from 2008 to 2009. The course - 'The Supervision of Counsellors and Helping Professionals' has enabled me to provide high quality supervision to therapists and those involved in helping and caring for others. I am experienced in supervising Humanistic, Integrative and Client Centred Counsellors.
