I am trained to diploma level in counselling supervision. I obtained my qualification through Counselling Xtra in Nottingham, training with Mike Worrall and Linda Smith.
I am able to offer individual or group supervision, welcoming enquiry from qualified or trainee counsellors or psychotherapists, working with children, young people, and adults. Whilst I work from a person centred perspective, I am able to supervise counsellors or psychotherapists working from different modalities. I am also able to offer supervision to health professionals.
My offer is an environment in which there is freedom to explore the client work, the therapeutic relationship, the counselling context, counsellor well-being, competence, validation, education and development. From my person centred perspective, all aspects of relationship are important to me and that includes the supervisor/supervisee relationship. My supervisory practice is informed by the BACP Ethical Framework (2018),by the process model of Hawkin and Schohet (1989), and by person centred theory.
From my position as university lecturer involved in the education of counselling students, I can offer understanding of the development needs of counselling students. I am particularly passionate about helping students to develop the ability to be deeply reflective in practice.
I am able to support counsellors and psychotherapists working towards professional body accreditation.
