About me and my therapy practice
I am BACP accredited practitioner with over 20 years experience in the field. I am a member of the BACP CYPF division and a member of BAATN.
I run a small private practice in East Devon offering face to face and online counselling and supervision. Therapy roles have included counselling in schools, in agencies and the charitable sector, in multi-agency working in Children Centres as well as in the field of holistic therapies. I am also registered with BUPA as a provider 30048635
My supervision practice includes working with experienced practitioners, those working within the specialist field of CYPF, for an organisation commissioned by the NHS and with counsellors in training.
I have a particular interest in reflective practice and supporting the personal and professional development of practitioners. Part of the co created learning environment will include incorporating aspects of different supervision models.
I am also a trainer/lecturer running workshops for adults, young people and children. I currently teach on entry level counselling skills courses up to university honours level degrees.
I offer sessions remotely via Zoom, Skype or Teams and from my home-based practice in Colyton.
I have really valued the relationship I have with my own supervisor and base my humanistic developmental model on my experience as supervisee with an emphasis on the working alliance which can be applied across many theoretical models of counselling.
It is important that we can have open and honest discussions and that you feel comfortable to bring not only your successes, but your mistakes as well. I am very approachable and support my supervisees with a shared curiosity about their clients. I am patient and aim to foster a non-judgmental learning environment.
My first session
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am more than willing to have a free 15 min chat about any aspect of your counselling training/ practice to help inform your requirements for clinical supervision without any obligation to book further sessions.
If you choose to take up the offer of supervision we will contract together for regular supervision sessions.
