Practice description

I feel supervision is essential to our work as therapist.

I work in a very relational way. I think it is very important that when you come to supervision you feel completly safe in what you bring . I feel it is two professionals  coming together and talking through what has gone well and what might have been difficult. 

I offer a safe none judgmental environment where  you can explore your work and grow and develop your skills.

I have worked with over 50 counsellors through the accreditation  .

Supporting them on the journey throughout the accreditation process.


My first session

In my first session I like to talk through the supervises needs and get to know their roles and their experience in supervision.

It is so very important that the supervise feels safe and able to talk through any fears or concerns.  It is important for us to get the feel of how we might work together.

I like to think that my supervises look forward to supervision

We work together good times and difficult times

In our first session we would discuss contracts and  fees and look at how supervision will work for them. What they would like to get from supervision .
