About me and my therapy practice
I am a school counsellor, trainer and supervisor. I have worked as a school counsellor in a wide range of educational settings for nearly 10 years.
I have been a trainer of qualified school counsellors and students at various levels up to PgDip for 5 years. I love supporting clinicians to reflect on their practice and the systems they work within. My supervision practice grew organically out of my teaching and I have been supervising school counsellors and CYP counsellors in private practice for 3 years.
My approach is integrative with key elements of person centred, systemic and psychodynamic thinking. I have been greatly inspired by my time in a Gestalt therapy group as well as Jungian ideas.
Creativity is an important element of my approach. I find this a powerful way to access our unconscious understanding.
My MA looked into the long-term impact of school counselling by interviewing adults retrospectively about their experiences of being in therapy when at school. This was a moving piece of work and continues to inform my practice.
I work with a range of supervisees from a variety of settings. A specialist area is supporting newly qualified counsellors or counsellors in training. I also enjoy offering a fresh perspective to experienced practitioners.
As a supervisor my aim is to be available for my supervisees as a resource. I have a particular interest in supporting supervisees to create a work/life balance and boundaries that work for them.
I'm happy to offer concessions for students and trainees.
