As a supervisor I offer a confidential, safe and therapeutic space to explore transference, counter-transference, ethical dilemmas, professional boundaries and legal issues that may arise when working with clients. I act as a resource to supervisees by sharing my counselling skills, theoretical knowledge and experience of working in organisations with different cultures and practices. I will challenge poor practice to give the supervisee the opportunity to expand their skills and increase the safety of their practice.
My counselling and supervision approach is integrative and I use a combination of interventions from Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, CBT, Transactional Analysis, Emotional Literacy Principles and Solution Focused Therapy.
I have extensive experience of counselling young people and adults across the Voluntary Sector, NHS, Education, EAP and in private practice. My supervision practice has welcomed practitioners and students on placements from a variety of working environments, counselling approaches and professional bodies.
During my time as a clinical supervisor I have had the opportunity to successfully support supervisees through the process of professional body accreditation.
