About me and my therapy practiceI am a fully qualified and experienced BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, having completed an NHS Diploma in Integrative Counselling accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. My training enables me to work integratively (which means I use more than one theoretical perspective) my approach centres on the principle that you are the expert on your life. With support and whilst working together in a safe, secure and empathic environment it is possible for you to make sense of any overwhelming emotions you are experiencing and make choices about your life based on what you discover. Many clients find that the inward changes they experience are enough to enable them to deal with any challenges they may face. I have completed extensive further training, more details of which can be found on my website. I hold a current Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Certificate (DBS)

About me and my therapy practice
I offer supervision for trainee, qualified counsellors and psychotherapists, individually and in small groups. I attempt to build a warm trusting and friendly supervisory relationship. The model of supervision I use to deliver clinical supervision is Inskipp and Proctor’s Supervisory working alliance model (1995)
My initial integrative training and continuous professional development underpins my supervision work. I draw on my relational training by considering and exploring my supervisees insights on their clients.
My Psychodynamic training enables me to recognise transference and countertransference and look for parallel processes and identify productive ways of working with these.
My cognitive training enables me to work with my supervisees on identifying their clients automatic negative thought patterns, negative self-schemas and errors in logic and work on healthier ways of being.
My aim is to encourage and support my supervisees in practicing safely and ethically, Thus, enabling them to work as effectively as possible. Supervision provides the reflective space in which to share your successes as well as your concerns, ask questions or talk about that intervention that didn't work!
Supervision is a crucial part of the work of a counsellor or psychotherapist, in terms of reflective practice, professional development, the maintaining of ethical and professional standards and self-care. I believe my job as a supervisor is to encourage my supervisees to be the best therapist, they want to be whilst monitoring and safeguarding the interests of their clients.
