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.

I’ve been counselling since 1995, and now work online with individuals, both long term and short term. I offer a safely boundaried relationship where we work with openness, sensitivity and challenge.  My experience includes Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, Primary Care (GP counsellor for 7 years), college counselling and private practice since 2003. My private practice includes work for Employee Assistance Programmes and work for insurers. I’m a BACP Senior Accredited and Registered Counsellor with  a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling from University of Warwick, 1998, Certificate in Person Centred Art Therapy Skills, 2002, PostGraduate Diploma in CBT for Person Centred Therapists, 2009. I also have a qualification in Supervision from Temenos and am an EMDR practitioner as well as  a Focusing Practitioner.   Before training as a counsellor I mostly worked in Further Education.
