I offer supervision to qualified counsellors, counselling students, and to
practitioners from other professional backgrounds.
I can provide supervision on the telephone, online or outside at suitably assessed locations.
I aim to provide my supervisee's with a reflective, supportive and ethically mindful space. I place an emphasis on the importance of realness and compassion in my work, promoting a human approach with strong professional boundaries.
My Supervision practice is based on an integration of three supervision models, Inskipp & Proctor's (1995) functional model, Page & Wosket's (2001) cyclical model and Hawkins and Shohet's (1989/2001) seven eyed model. I hold a PG Certificate in Supervision from KRCS, certified by the University of Gloucester in 2012. I gained an Advanced Diploma in supervision in 2014 accredited by NCS.
I am an integrative therapist, with a person centred approach to my supervision practice. My original Diploma was psychodynamic, I now use this theoretically to inform my practice, but not in process.
My experience covers counselling in private practice, mental health organisations, university and college provision, primary and secondary schools. I have developed my online practice with clients and supervisees over several years. A particular interest of mine is outdoor therapy work, whether this be walk and talk or a deeper eco-therapeutic approach.
I have worked within social care providing one to one and group support to parents and young people. I have managed and coordinated counselling services, volunteers and training. I also have personal experience of living and working abroad in a military setting.
