Supervision and training

working with counsellors and therapists, the private, public and charitable sectors


Counsellors and Psychotherapists are required to have a minimum amount of supervision by his or her professional body. As a practitioner there is also an ethical imperative to be supervised.

Supervision functions to add value to a counsellors work and professional development in many ways:

To ensure the counsellor is working safely and ethically
To support the counsellor's professional growth and development
To explore the impact the counsellors' clients have on them and their work
To consult on challenges and difficulties in their work
To build on the counsellors knowledge and expertise.

Supervision is a space to reflect on your work, to feel held and supported.

I supervise trainee, newly qualified and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists privately and can offer some discounted rates for the former. I supervise counsellors at the mental health charity MIND. I was a supervisor on the University of East London’s Post-graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
As well as general supervision, I offer specialist supervision to counsellors and therapists working with couples and relationships and psychosexual issues.

I have a Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision

I take an integrative perspective.

Online supervision is possible.

Supervision costs £60 per hour.
