Supervision for counsellors
and psychotherapists


I am a qualified supervisor with a Level 6 Diploma in Supervision (distinction).  I offer supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists, both on an individual basis and in groups.

Supervision involves a number of relationships between clients, counsellor and supervisor. I trained integratively and draw on Inskipp & Proctor’s Supervisory Alliance Model (1995), which encompasses the supervisory tasks through its 3 functions: normative (managerial/administrative), restorative (supportive) and formative (educative/learning).

My supervision wheel illustrates these 3 functions in the outer circle, maintaining a focus and underpinning the relationship.  The Relationship in the inner circle has the priority relationship between supervisee and clients in the middle.  The arrows illustrate the other relationships, which my supervisee and myself, as supervisor, have with her clients, the agency, and training organisation, where relevant.

"Our supervision sessions are a good balance between clients and myself.

You never appear to judge and are supportive and approachable.   You signpost books and resources relevant to specific issues and clients, and always give me the space and time to examine and develop insight and self awareness.  As a counsellor, I fully appreciate how much more effective my learning is when I'm able to see things for myself!"
