Practice description

I understand that this may be a difficult time for you, and that you may be feeling lost, or confused, or stuck, but sometimes all it takes is to start talking to someone, to begin to feel the weight of the burden start to ease, or a shift within yourself, which may mean you do not feel so lost anymore.

It’s a scary thing to do, to reach out and talk to someone you don’t know, but rest assured, everything which you bring to the counselling sessions is treated in the strictest confidence.

My hope is that the way we work together, will allow you to explore those things which may be feeling difficult for you at this moment in time.

I am a qualified person centred counsellor, and as such my counselling technique is based on the three main tenents of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. To me these translate as, I will work with you in an open and honest way, that is caring, compassionate and non-judgemental.

My first session

In the first session we can discuss the things you wish to work on and how we will work together going forward. 

We will also go through a brief contract of how we will work together, this will cover basic elements such as confidentiality and the cancellation process. 

There will also be space for you to ask any questions that you may have or to voice any worries that you may have if this is your first time in counselling.

Availability

I currently offer supervision via Skype/zoom and also via phone. 

I offer supervision on weekday evenings between 6-9pm, as well as Friday afternoon between 1-4pm. 

I also have the availability to offer supervision on Saturday mornings. 

About me and my therapy practice

For me the relationship is key if supervision is to work, and therefore I like the sessions to be as collaborative as possible. 

I'm a qualified person centred therapist, but that does not mean that I only work with person centred therapists. I have found when working with other modalities that sometimes it is good to have a different perspective on your counseling work and I hope I can help offer that. 

For me, the focus is not only on possible client interventions but in also looking at how you as a therapist work and to look at what might be coming up for you. 

Within supervision, the therapist is just as important as the client. 

Practice description

I’ll work at your pace while we work together through the issues which you feel might be blocking you, and that you may be struggling with.

My hope is that you will experience the supervision environment as a safe space, which will allow you to open up and talk about everything that is on your mind.

I see our relationship as something that is pivotal to us working well together, and I feel the best way to achieve this is to have open and honest communication within the supervision relationship.

My first session

During the first session, we will contract on how we plan to work together moving forward. I see this as a collaborative process whereby we find what works for both of us. 

I will explain how I work as a supervisor, and will allow space for any questions that you may have. 

Ideally, i like to use the first session as a way of getting to know one another, as for me our relationship will be key to how we work in supervision.
