Practice description

From childhood through to late adulthood, there are certain times when we all need help addressing problems and issues that may cause us emotional distress or make us feel overwhelmed. When you are experiencing these types of difficulties, you may benefit from the assistance of an experienced, trained professional. As a Professional counsellor I offer the caring, expert assistance that is often needed during these stressful times. A counsellor can help you identify the causes of your distress and assist you in finding the best ways to cope with the situation by changing behaviours that contribute to the problem or by finding constructive ways to deal with a situation that is beyond your personal control. Professional counsellors offer help in addressing many situations that cause emotional stress.

About me and my therapy practice

As a Supervisor I work with The 7 Eyed Model (developed by Hawkins and Shohet) The model is relational because it focuses on the relationships between client, therapist and supervisor and systemic because it focuses on the interplay between each relationship and their context within the wider system. The model is called “seven eyed” because it focuses on seven distinct aspects of the therapeutic process, as explained in the sections that follow. It’s important for supervisees simply to be aware of each of the “eyes” of the model, rather than learning each by rote.

Focus on supervisee description of content sessions and client narrative/behaviour

Exploration and reflection on supervisee interventions in the session

Exploration and reflection on supervisee Client relationship and session process

Focus on supervisee counter transference and its implications for working with clients

Focus on how Supervisor-/Supervisee process of what is happening between supervisee and client

Focus on supervisors counter transference

Focus on organisational, cultural, social, ethical and contractual context of therapy and supervision

I am an accredited member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework which I believe is important when you may bring ethical dilemmas. The "BACP believes that supervision can positively contribute to the maintenance and development of ethical professional practice".

Supervisee say to me that from the supervision they feel a release and have a clear mind and they also are then feeling energised to go back to their clients. The relationship is key for us working together.

I finished a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Supervision in 2013.

I qualified as a counsellor in 2007 and with clients I work in an integrative way from my training of Person Centre and Psychodynamic and with an understanding of Mindful CBT.
