Trained with a Diploma in the person-centred supervision approach, my focus is on my supervisees and their experience of themselves within their work and relationships with clients. I work from a place of trust in the practitioner – of their training, experience, and what they know of themselves and their clients – and whilst I recognise my responsibility for helping to maintain professional standards when supervising trainees, I remain encouraging and helpful of their own process, and the ongoing development of their understanding and self-belief as a qualifying counsellor.
As a practitioner in any role I work collaboratively, but most of all relationally, because I fully believe in the depth and quality of relationships to encourage growth and inner confidence. I’m supportive by nature, and my personality is naturally warm and down-to-earth. From a professional perspective, I’m hugely principled and ethical in how I practice.
As a therapist, I have a particular interest in relationships, bereavement and loss and also trauma, working with adult individuals and couples in private practice. My previous work skills also continue to transfer to my full-time self-employed practice. I have two decades of business management experience, as well as specialised working knowledge of the Mental Health Act and mental capacity, and experience of health records keeping and managing confidentiality; all of which inform me in practice as a counsellor, supervisor and therapy business owner.
Please do get in touch if you’d like to discuss if and how we might work together in a supervisory relationship.
