About me and my therapy practice

You may be considering counselling for lots of different reasons. It could be linked to present day issues, to bereavement and loss, to anxiety, low mood, struggling to cope with life, isolation and loneliness. It may linked to your life moving forward from lockdown and covid. 

Counselling can help to improve the way you feel, increase your self esteem and confidence. It can help you understand why you behave as you do in relationships and look at different ways of relating. It can be an opportunity to consider past life events and how they affect your life now and the decisions that you make.

Please have a look at my website to find out more about how we make work together.

About me and my therapy practice

As a Supervisor my work with you focuses on both task and process. We would work together to consider the tasks that needed to be attend to, framed around the Inskipp and Proctor normative, restorative and formative approach. We would also consider the process of the counselling relationship with your clients underpinned by the Hawkins and Shohet multi-dimensional model.

Fundamental is the relational dynamic that you develop with your client and the need to reflect on the impact of your client work on yourself. This may be considering ideas around transference, dual process, self-disclosure and ruptures and repairs. We would also consider the application of theory to the relationship, considering its use and its value and the choices we make to work with different approaches and ideas. How you can work collaboratively with your clients, negotiating the pathway of the therapeutic process.

Together we will look for possible blind spots and focus on different permutations of relationships; the client experience, the dynamics between the counsellor and client & the inter-relational experience between us as supervisor/supervisee, as well as the wider context including social constructs, sense of culture, difference and diversity, sexuality, white privilege, power, intersectionality and hetronormativity and its place within the relationship.
