About this Service

I offer Person Centred and creative supervision for counsellors and other professionals. My approach is to offer high levels of supprt for exploration and learning from experience as well as offering high levels of challenge. I believe that development as a therapist comes from the freedom to explore, experience and think within the safety of a clearly boundaried, accepting supervisory relationship.
