About me and my therapy practice

Many of us, for different reasons, find parts of our lives very difficult; sometimes overwhelming, and it takes immense courage to work at understanding the things that are unsettling us. Past experiences can mould the people we become and by thinking together we can help discover why patterns of behaviour exist and encourage new patterns for the future; the hope for lasting change.

My belief in an individual's ability to explore and evolve their understanding of themselves and their situation underpins my work. I 'walk with' those in distress and assist in helping manage and explore difficulties in an appropriately contained and supportive, yet challenging environment.

Developing a relationship of shared trust and respect is therefore essential for effective counselling, so it is important that there is a comfortable connection between client and counsellor. I provide a confidential place, free from judgement, for you to talk with someone about your concerns. I value each person's individuality and honour difference, diversity and inclusive practice within my work.

About me and my therapy practice

I provide clinical supervision for trainees, recently-qualified and experienced practitioners. I am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor.

Hawkins & Shohet's Process Model of Supervision, Proctor's Model of Supervision (Learning, Support and Accountability), along with psychodynamic, transactional analysis, person-centred and solution-focussed modalities of counselling and psychotherapy, inform my work.

My working style is one of collaboration, whilst being mindful of differences in responsibilities, role, age, gender etc. in any supervisory relationship.

My expectations of you as a potential supervisee are that you will have professional indemnity insurance (either personally or via the organisation you work for) and that you are a member of a professional organisation, such as the BACP, and abide by its code of ethics.

I offer an initial 30-minute meeting to discuss your requirements for supervision and to clarify frequency of supervision based on your caseload, experience and accreditation requirements.

I supervise counsellors at Leicester LGBT Centre, and have several years' experience of providing individual supervision, in addition to personal experiences of receiving individual, peer and group supervision.
