My first session

Making an Appointment

After an initial contact by email or phone we will arrange an appointment as soon as we can.  

The First Session

The first session is for you to tell me about yourself, the issues you would like to explore and to ask any questions yo may have about the way I work or the psychotherapy process.

At the end of this session we should have a good idea as to whether we want to work together and continue with further sessions, or you may want to think it over.

Once we decide to work together I suggest an initial commitment of 6-8 sessions.  At this point in times we will review the work together and decide to either complete therapy or continue with ongoing sessions.  The initial sessions can be a useful guide for helping you decide if you are wanting to work on a short or longer term basis.

About me and my therapy practice

I provide private Clinical  Supervision to Counselling and Psychotherapy trainees and graduates, as well as with more experienced practitioners. 

I am registered  with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP) and a Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I am also registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC).

I hold an MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling, as well as an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. I hold a qualification in Couples Therapy from the Re-Vision Centre for Integrative Psychosynthesis and have  a Supervision qualification in Integrative Supervision from Re-Vision.  

In addition to private practice I have worked in the NHS, Higher Education, and the Charity Sector, and continue to work within the NHS.


Practice description

My approach to supervision is Integrative and draws on over 15 years of clinical experience, including supervision of healthcare professionals within the NHS.

With an Integrative approach,  I draw upon different models of psychology and psychotherapy.  This allows me to work flexibly within your own model of practice and experience.  This also affords the opportunity to expand on your own theoretical framework should you wish to.  

I endeavour to create a reflective and supportive space within which to explore the work in an honest and professional manner that supports your learning and development as a therapist.

Enquiries & Making an Appointment

If you wish to find out more about Supervision,  contact me by phone or email and I can answer any initial questions you may have before scheduling an initial session.   

After an initial contact by email or phone we will arrange an appointment as soon as we can.

First Meeting

The first meeting is an opportunity to meet one another and decide if our working together is right for you. It will be a space for you to tell me about your training and experience and your supervision needs and wishes. It is also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the way I work. At the end of this first session we should have a good idea as to whether we want to work together and decide whether or not to continue with further sessions.

Frequency and Scheduling

When a decision has been made to go ahead we discuss frequency of sessions and agree to a regular time to meet.

Preparation for Supervision

In order to get the most from your supervision I suggest some preparation for your sessions.  If you would like guidance in how to prepare or present your supervision material,  I can provide you with a template to use or adapt to your way of working.
