About me and my therapy practice

In addition to my private practice, I am also the College Counsellor at Trinity College, University of Cambridge.

You can find full details of my practice at www.cambridgetherapist.com.

Approaching therapy or counselling for the first time can feel like a daunting and confusing prospect. People from all walks of life come to see me for many different reasons; you may be in crisis or you may simply wish to explore some aspect of your experience more deeply. Either way, it is a positive and courageous decision to make.

Before you begin, you may have many questions about what therapy and counselling are like and how they can help. Do take a look at my website www.cambridgetherapist.com where you will find full information about the therapy and counselling I offer. The relationship between you and your therapist is at the very heart of successful therapy, so it's important that you choose someone who is right for you, whom you feel you will be able to relate to and engage with.

My comfortable and private consulting room is on Ross St, a few minutes' walk from Cambridge station. There is unrestricted parking.

About me and my therapy practice

My approach to supervision is about helping you to be the best therapist you can be, in your own modality, as defined by you. I welcome supervisees who are open to looking at things in new ways, to being challenged, and to engaging in a rich and lively supervisory relationship.

My intention is to provide a warm and stimulating space which is genuinely supportive of you and your practice. I believe that a good supervisory relationship can be deeply nourishing of you as both person and therapist, and in this way can enhance your working life and the therapeutic benefit you offer to your clients.

In addition to my private practice, I am also the College Counsellor at Trinity College, University of Cambridge.

Qualifications

My supervision training took the form of a Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals and Groups at The Grove. As such, I am familiar and comfortable with the variety of experience that supervisees of different orientations may bring to the encounter, and my approach carries the potential to embrace any modality.

Practicalities

Supervision sessions take place, at least initially, at my practice in Ross Street, Cambridge CB1. We will meet for an initial session to discuss what you are looking for in a supervisor, and will decide together if we feel like a good fit. We will then agree on the frequency of sessions, depending on your experience level and client load, and meet generally at the same regular time, for example weekly or fortnightly. Once we have got to know each other, sessions may be available on Skype.

My fee for individual supervision is £70 per 50 minute session.
