Online and face-to-face supervision for counselling, psychotherapy and the helping professions

Individual, group, online/Skype* and face-to-face supervision

In my private supervision practice I have particular interest and experience of working with trainees and new-to-practice professionals, although I also work with very experienced counsellors, psychotherapists, sex therapists, complementary therapists and mental health professionals from integrative, existential, CBT, Gestalt, person-centred and the various psychodynamic backgrounds. I also work with hypnotherapists, welfare officers and professionals in educational settings. I offer Skype-type* supervision to therapists all over the UK.

As professionals, we know that supervision helps us to reflect on and gain feedback and an alternative perspective about the content and process of casework. However, to my mind, supervision is also an encounter that offers validation and support both to a person and a professional. I see supervision as the ‘grown-up relationship’ of the therapy world with adult-to-adult dialogue that is both creative and collaborative. I feel that supervision also provides a place to rest the difficulties of your caseload so that you don't carry alone the unnecessary issues, problems and projections that arise from it. Additionally, supervision can help with effectively planning and utilising your personal and professional resources.

My supervision training was undertaken in an integrative model (validated by the Institute for Individual Psychology), and this allows me to work comfortably with many of the frameworks counsellors, psychotherapists and other mental health, complementary and educational professionals currently practise from.

I hold a broad portfolio of work as a supervisor, including being an experienced group, individual and online (video-chat) supervisor with experienced and trainee practitioners in my private practice. I also work for a number of counselling and educational institutions in and around Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.

My standard fee for supervision is £55 per session (£50 online).

CPD courses and groups offered for 2018

Sex in the consulting room If you would like details of further presentations of these workshops then please email me to be placed on the mailing list.
The Sex in the consulting room workshops help therapists engage with what they need to know about working with sex. In previous presentations of this series workshops themes have included: working with sexual issues with clients; working with pornography addictions; and working with sex addictions. Please note that I am also able to offer a bespoke training for individual therapists who want to learn more about this subject.

*I use 'Skype' as a generic term for video-over-the-internet therapy and supervision. I find that the best current platform to use is VSee – a secure, free-to-download and use Telemedicine Platform. FaceTime and WhatsApp use end-to-end encryption, so are seen as more securely confidential than Skype (which I no longer use for therapy or supervision conversations). In some appropriate cases I also work with people via a mobile or landline telephone.
