I know how hard it can be to ask someone for help, taking the first step in accessing support is a huge achievement. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental counselling and supervision service where I want you to be yourself and use the safe space to explore whatever it is that’s concerning you. Please get in touch if you need me to listen to whatever seems troublesome. I believe there is a solution to every problem and together, we can find it. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), specialising in domestic and sexual violence, with over eight years of professional experience with children and adults.

My aim is to bring back the happiness, confidence, normality and strength to the individual concerned.

About me and my therapy practice

Supervision is perhaps the most important component in the development of a competent practitioner. It is within the context of supervision that you can begin to develop a sense of your professional identity and to examine your own beliefs and attitude regarding clients and therapy. A good counsellor will be fully aware of his or her own values, beliefs, attitudes and biases; being aware of them lessens the danger of their impacting negatively on the counselling relationship. We all operate within a personal belief system, but as counsellors, we need to remember always to work with their clients in a way which is consistent with the client's values, not our own. 

As Counsellors we will be challenged by many ethical dilemmas along the way and the correct path is not always clearly marked; discussing these issues with a supervisor will ensure that professional ethical standards are maintained. 

Whatever the difficulties, however, I believe that good professional supervision is a necessity for all counsellors, for learning, for debriefing, for self-development. I also believe that our clients have a right to expect that we do undertake ongoing professional development at all levels, remaining up to date and aware of new trends. 

There are many reasons to be proactive in getting supervision for ourselves. First, supervision is a central form of support, where we can focus on our own difficulties as a worker as well as have our supervisor share some of the responsibility for our work with the clients. Second, supervision forms part of our continual learning and development as workers, including eventually helping us to learn how to be supervisors.

As a supervisor I can also help you to use your own resources better, manage your work load and challenge your ways of coping. If we are helping clients take more change of their own lives, it is essential that we are doing the same. 

Practice description

I am currently working remotely due to Covid-19 to ensure safety for both myself and my clients. All sessions are conducted via Zoom or Skype, recorded for monitoring purposes and stored with a safe encrypted password. 

My first session

All sessions are 1.5 hours duration as in accordance to the BACP framework. The supervision will be confidential with the usual exceptions e.g, risk to self or clients. 

The first session will include the supervisor/supervisee contract.  This session will also explore your expectations from me and what your purpose, goals and objectives you are hoping to gain from supervision.  We will explore who your clients are, which theory you are applying and look at ways of supporting you with your work and further self development.
