I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Are you looking for:

  • Someone to support and challenge you.

  • Offer you a safe space that takes care of your emotional wellbeing and support you to consider how to best balance the challenges of being a counsellor with the demands of our own day to day.

  • A supervisor that helps you to nurture your internal supervisor and encourages you to take ownership of you client work with confidence.

  • Are you looking for integrating some creative ideas into your client work? 


I invite you to reach out to me if you think this is what you are looking for.


If you are looking for clinical supervision for either telephone/ online work, them we may be a good fit as well.


I know that finding the right supervisor for you is important especially if you are looking for a supervisor who will support your professional development and encourage you to challenge your blind spots also welcome your knowledge and life experience and work collaboratively with you.



I am an integrative Counsellor and a supervisor trained in Online and Telephone Working; the modalities I use in my supervision sessions are The Seven Eye and the Integrative model. 

Clinical theories underpinning my approach are humanistic, psychodynamic, compassion based approach; CBT; I also like to power the sessions with creative techniques.

My Supervision also focus on your professional relationships which will include a balance of normative (ETHICAL/LEGAL ASPECTS), formative (LEARNING TOGETHER ABOUT YOUR WAY OF WORKING) and restorative elements (THE EFFECTS OF COUNSELLING UPON YOU), intended to foster your wellbeing and ensure that the needs of your clients are being addressed and to monitor the effectiveness of your client interventions.

Resources for Therapists 

This is a collection of resources that I use with my supervises - my intention is to continue adding here new resources to help my supervises in their clients work. Please get in touch if there's something you would like to see here.
