Counselling Psychotherapy Coaching


My aim is to provide clinical supervision that energises and stimulates your continued development, for the benefit of your clients and yourself.

I work with trainee and qualified counsellors & therapists, also others from a range of backgrounds, modalities and disciplines.

My approach is influenced by humanistic, integrative therapies as well as an interest in existentialism.

I’ve over 25 years experience of providing clinical supervision and hold a British Psychological Society Approved Certificate in Clinical Supervision.

I combine Proctor’s 3 Function Model and Page & Wosket's Cyclical Model of supervision, which I find useful frameworks to guide our work together.

Proctor’s 3 Function’s:

Formative function (Learning)

Clinical supervision attends to expanding the skills, abilities and understanding of the supervisee.

Restorative function (Support)

Clinical supervision attends to how client work impacts the supervisee.

Normative function (Accountability)

Clinical supervision attends to the safety and effectiveness of the supervisee’s practice.

Both my Clinical and Supervisory practice is informed by the BACP’s Ethical Framework & Professional Guidelines.

The BACP describes the functions of supervision as being to:

  • assist in the development of the reflective practitioner
  • support the therapist
  • maximise the effectiveness of the therapeutic relationship
  • monitor/ safeguard the interests of the client
  • maintain ethical standards as set out in the Ethical Framework

Our work together will be a respectful, supportive, collaborative style that both enables and gently challenges us, with the aim of facilitating continued professional growth and development.
