I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and subscribe to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy. I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Practice and a Post Graduate Diploma in Supervision.
I have been supervising since 1996 and my Integrative Approach and training enable me to draw upon theories grounded in the Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural philosophies.
I have extended my qualifications to include a Post Graduate Diploma in Person Centred Supervision. My aim is to provide a safe therapeutic environment in which we both make a commitment of time and energy to each other through our decision to work together, a place where deeper thinking, challenges, warmth, and transparency underpin the relationship.
My role as your Supervisor will be about managing the journey we take together, our hopes, fears and passions for the work we do and an active space where reflection and reflexivity are valued highly.
Together we will I hope create opportunities where clients will be at the heart of our sessions, sharing a purpose to develop an environment and a presence where clients feel encouraged to explore and discover aspects of themselves they may not yet fully understand.
I feel sure the work will be varied and I hope a learning experience and space where ideas, values, thoughts and feelings will be respected and encourage to grow from those initial seeds of awareness to the bounty of full fruition. The purpose, functions and tasks of supervision will differ according to the context in which you work and we will meet the challenges this brings together.
I also run monthly CPD groups for Counsellors.
