As a supervisor, I work with the practitioner on their own issues physically and emotionally in relation to the client until they feel more balanced and thus able to see the client clearly again. This frees up the work for counsellor and client, making way for new therapeutic change.
I have been practicing psychotherapy and counselling since 1990, having worked in private practice, in the voluntary sector, in prisons, and in NHS general practitioner surgeries. I started working as a supervisor in 2011.
My own approach is person-centred, Humanistic and psycho-spiritual. My interests have been in working with trauma, attachment, addiction and long-term illness. I also have a special interest in working with racist trauma and LGBTQI trauma. I have been training counsellors in meridian-based therapies since 2002.
I aim to provide a space for you that is empowering and collaborative where we can work together toward your goals in your practice.

Confidentiality: My work as a supervisor is discussed with my own supervisor so I can reflect on my supervisory process. No names are used. If there is a need to liaise with any other resource person, you and I will discuss together how to ensure complete confidentiality.
