Supervision details

I have a person-centred approach to Music Therapy with a particular interest in psychoanalytic dynamics and attachment styles.

I work online and in-person with qualified and trainee Music Therapists, as well as with music teachers and community musicians. The latter may benefit from extra support when working with complex client groups or wanting to develop different therapeutic practices. 

I have experience supervising therapists working within school, charity and community settings, as well as managing multi-disciplinary teams. 

I have supervised arts therapists of different modalities (most recently art therapy and dance-movement psychotherapy) and am open to working with anyone where my experience and skills as a Music Therapist could be of benefit. 

Testimonial from Music Therapist accessing clinical supervision in 2023: "I had the good fortune of receiving clinical supervision with Hugh over the course of several months. He applied a gentle and thoughtful approach, and helped provide insight into a particularly challenging piece of clinical work for me, leading me to make some important work-related decisions. Hugh provides a nourishing environment through which to explore whatever you feel like bringing to the space, and I valued that very much. Thank you, Hugh!"

I offer a discounted rate for newly qualified therapists. 

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

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.
