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 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.
