About me and my therapy practice

Supervision provides you with an opportunity to reflect on your practice, so that you can offer your clients the best and most ethical service, while keeping yourself aware and cared for.

My experience includes supervising trainee counsellors on diploma, undergraduate, masters and doctoral programmes, as well as qualified, experienced counsellors and psychotherapists.

My core modality is psychodynamic and I have also supervised counsellors who work integratively, or use existential, person-centred or solution-focused approaches with adults and young people.  

The Terapia Supervision Diploma prepared me to supervise clinicians working with adults, adolescents and children, in a range of modalities and using creative methods.  The course fulfils UKCP, BACP and BAPT criteria for supervisor training.

I am a member of PTUK and an Approved Supervisor for PTUK members.

Having worked as a school counsellor and as Clinical Lead for a Young People's Counselling Service, I can offer supervision for anyone working in a school or with school-age people.  This may also include staff working in roles where they are holding confidential information, often of a difficult, highly emotional kind - such as safeguarding or child protection officers, school pastoral tutors and social workers.

Fees: Individual supervision: £50 (1 hour, fortnightly) or £75 (an hour and a half, monthly).  Concessions for trainees.

Group supervision:  by negotiation.

Currently, I offer clinical supervision to individual therapists via zoom video link.

About me and my therapy practice

Life is difficult for all of us at some stage or other, sometimes it feels overwhelming and unbearable. You may be struggling but finding it hard to identify what the trouble is. Maybe you do know but don't see a way out. Such feelings often start early in life, leading to confusion, anger, sadness, relationship problems and difficult or dangerous behaviour. This is why I work with children and teenagers, as well as adults.

You may feel stuck, yet unable to talk to those close to you, for all sorts of reasons. Exploring your feelings and their origins can really help, when it is in confidence with someone who is not only independent but also well-qualified, experienced and caring. It is an opportunity for you to understand your inner world and the meaning behind troubling feelings, problematic behaviour patterns or depression and anxiety, to help you regain control.

I provide a calm, non-judgemental and insightful perspective. My aim is to build a trusting relationship, within strict professional and ethical guidelines. This means working sensitively and appropriately with all my clients, whatever their age or background, towards their individual goals.

I offer

  • one-to-one psychodynamic therapy for adults of all ages, which tends to be long-term and open-ended

  • one-to-one therapy for teenagers and children, tailored to their needs and understanding

also

  • clinical supervision for counsellors, psychotherapists and other professionals who work in confidential settings with adults, adolescents and children.

The list below covers some of the reasons people may want help but I see everyone as an individual, rather than a diagnosis.  

I am registered with BUPA and several other insurers as a provider of counselling and psychotherapy.
