About me and my therapy practice

I love communicating and sharing a creative and open learning space. An environment based on mutual respect and consideration is most effective in fostering helpful learning, which is what I aspire to provide. I taught in further education at West Herts College, from 2003-2013, completing a Professional Certificate in Education, Accredited by The University of Greenwich. 

During my time as Pathway Leader for Counselling at West Herts College, I wrote the counselling curriculum at levels 2-5, and progressed hundreds of students through the life-changing journey that is counselling training. I enjoyed developing a robust team of six counselling tutors, and working with them in clarifying and developing the counselling curriculum. I was also responsible for initiating/developing tutor supervision and continuing professional development for the team. 

 My special interests lie in the fields of relationships, communication, child and adult attachment, and trauma recovery (including childhood trauma and abuse). Spirituality is central to my  understanding of human nature and well-being and, and I am also able to facilitate spiritual direction and quiet/retreat days.

Availability

I see clients and supervisees on Mondays-Wednesdays.

I will be unavailable from 20th-22nd April 2020.

About me and my therapy practice

My supervision style is relational and congruent, drawing on a wide range of theoretical approaches. I am a believer in the value of the whole person, including intuition and resonance, along with the cognitive and emotional processing usual in supervision. I have a keen interest in people and what it is to be authentically human, which also influences the way I work. My years as a counselling trainer have enhanced my capacity to mentor supervisees in the practical application of theory and ethics, as well as offering support through the accreditation process. I run group supervision as well as seeing supervisees on a one-to-one basis. Please be in touch with any enquiries. 

Practice description

My home-office provides an informal and relaxing space where I hope you will feel welcome and able to grow and learn with me.

There is room to park on the driveway and dedicated loo facilities for visitors.

My first session

During our first meeting, I will be asking what you are hoping for from supervision, and from your supervisor. We will be sharing a bit about ourselves and our thoughts on therapy and being a therapist. This is to give us both the opportunity to decide whether we would like to build a working relationship together.

We will discuss frequency of sessions, and the cost including how you will make payment. There will be opportunities to ask questions and clarify anything that is vague.
