I qualified as a supervisor in 2009 and offer supervision to qualified and experienced counsellors as well as trainee counsellors completing their placements. As with my practice as a counsellor a person-centred approach informs the way I work as a supervisor.  I strive to offer a supportive but challenging environment in which my supervisees can develop as reflective practioners.  I pay attention to the many strands to supervision, including safeguarding the interest of the counsellor’s clients, maintaining ethical standards as well as supporting the counsellor to maximize the effectiveness of their therapeutic relationships. As a person-centred supervisor I encourage my supervisees to be responsible for how they use their supervision.  When appropriate I am willing to share my knowledge learned from experience, but prefer to facilitate supervisees to find their own answers and develop trust in their own judgement.

I am happy to offer a 30 minute session free of charge to discuss how I work as a counsellor or as a supervisor, and the opportunity for us to meet each other and see if we can work together.
