About me and my therapy practice

I have worked as a humanistic-integrative counsellor since 2000, and have held BACP accreditation since 2003. I completed a Post-Graduate Certificate in Supervision in 2014. I have recently undertaken 100 hours of training as an online practitioner for webcam/voice-only work, and completed an additional Cyber Supervisor qualification. This has enabled me to become a professional-level member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO), and to advertise on their website as qualified to deliver supervision to therapists working online/ by telephone.

I am now semi-retired, but continue to practise as a volunteer counsellor at Saffron Sheffield, working for between 20 and 40 sessions with women who have experienced some form of trauma.

I believe effective supervision, like effective therapy, depends on establishing a warm, mutually respectful and honest relationship. This creates a safe space which offers: 

  •  the opportunity to explore all aspects of your work with clients, including our inner thoughts and feelings about the work
  •  discussion of your hopes and needs for professional development
  •  a chance for you to feel heard, supported, restored and energised

I charge £50 per hour, but am prepared to negotiate a reduced rate for students or counsellors in their first year of practice.  I currently work by webcam. When it is safe to offer in-person sessions, I work at my home, which is not fully wheelchair accessible, but I would also be prepared to discuss arranging sessions at the home of any supervisee who lives locally, if they are affected by significant mobility problems.

I am happy to offer an exploratory hour by webcam free-of-charge, to help decide whether working together feels like a 'good fit'.
