Whether you are a trainee student counsellor starting out on your journey and looking for a supervisor who can offer you guidance and support through the developmental stages and challenges that you are likely to encounter on your counselling journey. 

Or perhaps you are a newly qualified or experienced counsellor requiring an experienced and knowledgeable supervisor to work alongside you with our often complex and demanding client caseloads. 

I am  experienced approachable and grounded and am committed to providing a professional and safe environment  that is respectful, non-judgemental to enable  the supervisee to bring any issue to supervision, so that we can work through these together and make informed decisions, whilst adhering to the BACP Ethical Framework.

I am an experienced and Accredited counsellor with the BACP, I initially trained as an Integrative counsellor, however my counselling approach is underpinned by applying the core conditions of the person centred model.  In addition I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) and trauma trained with the organisation PODS. I am now a COSRT Accredited Couples and Psycho Sexual Therapist. Additionally I am registered with BUPA as an approved therapist.

I continue to keep up to date with my CPD Training as this enables me to offer my supervisees and trainee counsellors the best and most knowledgeable service possible. I not only offer supervision face to face I also provide the same service through Skype.  

My post graduate supervision training was completed with Gloucester University and is Accredited with the National Counselling Society (NCS), which also incorporated groupwork. Since qualifying in 2014, I have supervised trainee and qualified counsellors from a variety of placements/ work places. These include GP surgeries, prescribe medications, drug and alcohol teams, school counsellors, rape and sexual abuse organisations, hospice, cancer patients, place 2 be, mental health organisations. 
I am  a clinical supervisor offering individual and group supervision for Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (RASAC) North Wales, and clinical supervisor for a voluntary organisation working with individuals experiencing mental health difficulties. I have also set up a school counselling service in a high school in England and provide supervision within. I also facilitate training and workshops to various organisations.

As a registered social worker, I have worked in adult mental health teams and in children and young person’s services as a family social worker.  I am conversant with child protection and safe guarding procedures, protocols and legislation, court processes, risk assessments and working with vulnerable adults.
 
How it works
I offer supervisees a 30 minute session to come and meet me, this gives you the opportunity to ask any questions and discuss your supervision or personal therapy requirements. 
We will discuss which model of supervision you will require and consider how we can work together to achieve this. 
If we both feel that we wish to work together then we will jointly set up a contract to cover the relevant points, in preparation for the first session. This session has no obligations attached and there is no charge.
I offer face to face supervision or this can be completed via skype.
