Supervision. sand and stones


Supervision provides a framework within which theoretical, experiential and practical aspects of psychotherapy and counselling can be explored.

It seeks to offer a safe, sometimes challenging, space, to think about and explore the issues that arise out of discussing thereapeutic work,

I qualified as an Integrative Clinical Supervisor with The Minster Centre in 1997. I am on the UKCP Supervisors Directory and am a BACP accredited supervisor. I have been providing supervision both in private practice and for organisations for 25 years.

I will help you to grow your professional confidence, broaden your skill set, and to equip you to help your clients. Engaging in the clinical supervision process provides an opportunity to develop a mentoring relationship with an experienced practitioner, which will nurture your expertise and your career.

As an integrative supervisor I work with counsellors and psychotherapists who have trained in a variety of different models. I offer one-to-one and group supervision to qualified and trainee therapists from any theoretical background who are looking for a supportive and empowering relationship to explore their work with clients.

My aim for supervision is :

  • to support and hold you in your work with clients
  • to provide a safe place to bring your "shadow" or more vulnerable side as a therapist and counsellor
  • to create a space where you feel able to develop professionally as a therapist or counsellor
  • to bring my wide knowledge and experience to the benefit of the supervisory relationship
  • to provide education and information if it is needed.
  • gain accreditation as counsellor, psychotherapist or supervisor.

I have provided supervision for the following:

Gestalt Psychotherapists
Qualified and experienced Psychotherapists and Counsellors
Psychotherapy and Counselling trainees
Work with adults
Work within Higher Education Institutions
Bristol University Counselling Service
Westminster Mind
Blenheim Project
Various Voluntary Organisations
Volunteer Counsellors

Skype Supervision

For those of you who wish to have supervision from the comfort and convenience of your own home, or are too far away to have face to face supervision I offer Skype supervision.

On Line Supervision

Due to time constraints, travel arrangements, or difficulties with accessing a supervisor within your local area, the option of working with a supervisor using the internet can be an effective alternative to face to face supervision.
I offer Online supervision through or voice and webcam Skype or an alternative medium such as Vsee and Face Time.

It is important that the working space reflects good practice in engaging within the therapeutic relationship, i.e. a lack of interruptions and distractions during the online session.

Sometimes if the signal is weak the picture is jerky, we may decide to turn the picture off and just use the audio function.
If we find that we can’t make contact, or if we lose contact during a session, I will send you an email. You can do the same. So, if we are out of touch, check your email. If the service is unavailable or our computer has broken, I will contact you by phone just to say why I am not online, then we’ll reschedule.


Your personal details such as your name, and contact numbers are kept securely and not shared with any other party in accordance with the Data Protection Act.

If we need to exchange confidential information I use Proton mail which is end to end encrypted. It is easy to use and I send you a password to access the email.

Fees and Payment

My fee for online counselling supervision is £50 per hour and £75 for an hour and a half. I ask for payment in advance of the session.
