Clinical Supervisor

Supervision details:

I have been supervising Counsellors and Psychotherapists for more than 20 years in a variety of settings within the NHS, Education, Charitable Organisations and Private Practice. I have a good understanding of the needs of students in placement.  I bring a flexible and understanding approach to my supervisory relationships. 

I offer a relaxed and supportive environment for Counsellors and Psychotherapists to explore their work with clients whilst collaboratively ensuring continued professional and personal development.

I use Proctor's three function interactive model as the core approach to my Supervision work. The Normative, Formative and Restorative (management, learning and support) elements of this model ensure that each supervision session meets your specific needs.  I  have a British Psychological Society Approved Certificate in Clinical Supervision, SDS Accreditation in Clinical Supervision Level 2 (Assessed Academic Competence) SDS Accreditation in Clinical Supervision.

I offer Clinical Supervision for individuals and small groups. Supervisor Collaboration is at the centre of my work whilst recognising  the importance of supervisor's role is understood ethically and also to ensure the Normative, Formative and Restorative needs we have are being met.
