About me and my therapy practice

I’m passionate about helping you make more of your life. I have a Masters degree (with Distinction) in Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy Practice. I counsel couples and individuals in Loughborough, Nottingham, by telephone and online.

I also have an Advanced Post Diploma Certificate in Person-Centred Couples Counselling, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision, a clear enhanced DBS check and insurance.

My clients are equally men and women of many occupations and nationalities, aged 18 or much older. I’ve counselled at an NHS hospital, a charity, and in private practice.

As well as qualifications, I bring personal life experience to your sessions. I’m from Glastonbury, and have worked in the quarrying industry, as a solicitor and as a part-time university teacher to UK and international students. All my work has involved helping people, and I have wide experience of people’s relationships and personal problems. I have a doctorate in modern approaches to enlightenment. All of this feeds my enthusiasm for helping people gain power, improve themselves and change their lives in ways best for them.

I offer time-limited (short-term) and open-ended (long-term) counselling and psychotherapy. You don't need a “diagnosis.” Counselling can help people with medical conditions (inc. depression, anxiety, addictions) and also “well” people seeking personal growth, better relationships, more happiness, fulfilment and meaning in life.

The use of the title Dr in this directory listing relates to the member’s doctorate qualification. However, this does not imply a general medical qualification.

About me and my therapy practice

I am committed to the person-centred approach and offer person-centred supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists, and trainee counsellors.

I also offer supervision to other professionals, workers and amateur/lay people who may benefit from the reflection and self-development that supervision may offer them in their chosen work or activities.

Practice description

A little about person-centred supervision with me

A a supervisor I offer you the opportunity to develop yourself as well as your professional practice through a supportive supervisory relationship in which we can work collaboratively on whatever personal and practice issues you choose to bring.

 This approach to supervision may particularly suit humanistic and person-centred counsellors and trainees  although I welcome working with counsellors of other/mixed modalities as well as non-counsellors.

The majority of our time in supervision will be spent working on and exploring the personal and practice issues you want to address collaboratively  as a joint venture together and in a manner very similar to being in person/centred counselling. This allows you to develop your own ways of working well with your own clients. Nevertheless, as a supervisor I also at times offer guidance from my own knowledge, experience and responsibilities to you and others. 


Practicalities

 Supervision sessions can be arranged for individuals and groups – fees available on request.

 Supervision hours will be clock hours in duration, not 50 minute sessions as are many therapists’  therapy hours. We will meet monthly for at least 1 or 1.5 hours each month with the possibility of additional support when needed, including by telephone or online.


My qualifications and experience

I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision.

Please see my counselling profile on this website for more information about me and my other qualifications and experience. 

My first session

The first supervision is very much like a first / assessment counselling session as we both will want to learn a little about each other and assess our fit. 

I have a few forms and information to go through with you during this first meeting but (especially if we set the meeting up first online)  this should not take long and we will each have a good amount of time to ask questions or explain how we work.

It is important from the outset that we have a clear understanding between us of how we are working together but nevertheless that understanding will be fluid and changeable rather than set in stone. Every supervisee is different and I am open, if possible,  to tailoring any formal "supervision agreement" to each unique supervisee as a work in progress we can return to from time to time as, for instance, your work changes.
