About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and accredited Counsellor and have been in Private Practice for the last fourteen years.  I have gained experience in working with a variety of issues and have worked with children, young people, adults and older clients.  My initial contact with clients takes time to consider the issues that may be impacting upon their lives.  Part of that initial meeting can often be about explaining how therapy works, what it entails and answering any queries the client may have about how the process is likely to unfold.  We will then try to identify our goals for therapy, and begin a process tailored to meet the client's needs.

About me and my therapy practice

I am an accredited Supervisor, and have been in Private Practice for a number of years.   Over time working with supervisees, I aim for us to establish a way of working that inspires learning and will enhance supervisees' professional development.  I see my style of supervision as Reflective in nature which invites curiosity and reflection from many angles.  I like to weave in the concept of working creatively, where supervisees are open to that medium.  I find this brings a different energy to our work which can be energising and refreshing.  In supervision, I do believe that regular Reviews are essential.  This offers space for both of us to consider our relationship, how we are working together, any concepts we might need to develop further and anything in particular that supervisees would like to develop within their practice. 

I offer group supervision to small groups of supervisees.  Although Group Supervision is a very different experience from one-to-one supervision, a well formed group of supervisees can build together a trusted place where well supported peer learning can be established, aiding to additional therapeutic and supervisory understanding and growth.
