I believe supervision is a vital part of continuing to grow and develop as a practitioner, so you can make sure your clients are getting the best from you.
Qualifications and Experience
I trained as a supervisor in 2018 at the Manchester Institute of Psychotherapy, having qualified as a counsellor in 2015 and completed my MSc Psychotherapeutic counselling (Distinction) in 2016. My initial training was integrative (Person-centred, Systemic, Psychodynamic and CBT) I have also done additional training in working with Compassion Focused Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. My dissertation research focused on creative expressions and identity in counselling based on my own experiences of working creatively as part of my personal development. I have recently completed a certificate in online counselling with OCST to work with voice and webcam.
I have particular experience of working with LGBTQ+ identities, neurodiversity and in Higher Education settings having previously worked as a Disability Officer, Wellbeing Advisor and Specialist Mentor (Mental Health and Autism) in HE. I am currently a member of BACP and ACTO and in previous roles, I was member of UMHAN and NADP. I presented a workshop at the UMHAN conference in 2018 on working with students with complex needs.

How Do I Work?
As with my counselling practice I believe supervision needs can shift and change over time and I work with supervisees to ensure their needs are being met in each sessions. For this reason I encourage you to book a free telephone consultation to discuss your supervision requirements so we can see if I will be the best person to support you.
Who do I work with?
I currently supervise a range of professionals including counsellors, specialist mentors and mental health professionals in HE.
I believe that many professionals who support individuals can benefit from space away from work to process events and reflect on their ways of working to ensure they are practicing safely and ethically.
If you think you might benefit, then please do get in touch to discuss your needs.
Currently all sessions are online and takes place via Zoom, you will need to register for a free account with zoom to access sessions. Where appropriate I am also able to offer walk and talk sessions in Crewe and Nantwich.
Supervision costs £50 per hour, all sessions must be payed for in advance by bank transfer.
Online sessions cancelled with less than 24hrs notice will still be charged for.
If there is a difficulty with technology that impacts on the session we will discuss alternative options such as continuing over the phone or rescheduling.
