I offer supervision to practising counsellors and psychotherapists working from a range of theoretical orientations, whatever your stage of development or context of work. I am a Visiting Tutor at York St John University where I facilitate group supervision with students on the Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling.
My approach to supervision is humanistic-integrative and emphasises the support role of supervision. It is my hope that we will develop a collaborative supervisory relationship which makes it feel possible for you to bring all aspects of your work for further reflection - especially areas which may feel difficult to talk about, where you may feel a sense of regret, shame or embarrassment or judgement of 'bad' work. I am equally keen to celebrate and learn about work you feel has gone well. I hope to offer you an open, reflective space where we can be creative and experimental in our approach to the dilemmas, concerns, uncertainties and rewards each of us face as practitioners.
In my own practice, supervision is fundamental to my sense of well-being and capacity to manage a large case-load. I am passionate about the value of quality supervision and keen to offer supervisees an experience which influences your personal and professional development and supports you to continue to support your clients in a way which feels purposeful, focused, ethical and rewarding. I will initiate regular reviews of our work with the aim of ensuring our supervisory relationship is meeting your needs.
I am open to working with trainee, qualified and experienced therapists from a range of work contexts.
I am flexible in how we conduct supervision and am equally comfortable working over video call and the telephone as in person.
I also offer Walk-Talk Supervision.
The frequency of our sessions is up to you.
I work with groups of practitioners as well as individuals - contact me for further information.
60 Minutes £50
90 Minutes £75
Group Supervision priced according to number of participants
I offer one 30-minute initial discussion to help us both decide if we would like to work together.
I do not charge for this over the telephone / video call.
If you prefer to have a longer initial conversation in person, I charge my usual session fee for this.
My Supervisor training (Diploma in Supervision of Individuals and Groups) is accredited by the National Council for Psychotherapists (NCP) and was truly integrative in nature, to equip me to support professionals working from a broad range of theoretical orientations - including Existential, Gestalt, Person-centred, CBT, TA, Somatic, Psychodynamic, and those of us who are integrative in our approach. This training was delivered by leading professionals in their respective modalities including Professor Ernesto Spinelli, Glenn Nicholls, Dr. Michael Worrell, Tom Warnecke, Manu Bazzano and Dr. Heather Pryce.
I welcome contact from you
I look forward to hearing from you and learning about your supervisory needs.
Please get in touch if you value collaboration in supervision, are seeking a supportive supervisory relationship where you are willing to be open in the material you share, where you know you can bring any professional or personal issues relevant to your client work, and where you share my commitment to the process and value of supervision and the impact quality supervision can have on our client work and professional lives.
Coronavirus Update: March 2020
I am experienced at working over the telephone and video call. If you would welcome guidance about accessing supervision in this way, or perhaps need supplementary supervision if you are adapting your practice to work over video call or the telephone, I welcome contact from you and would be happy to offer support at this time of immense uncertainty and change.
