Having a space to reflect on your practice is essential to the work and your own wellbeing, helping to prevent compassion fatigue, vicarious traumatisation and burn-out. The relationship I offer you as a supervisor is one of equals, as all relationships should be.
My training background has been with Bristol University and Severn Talking Therapy, I hold an Advanced Diploma in Relational Supervision and offer supervision either on a 1:1 or group basis for people in private practice, in the caring professions, and in an organisational setting. I provide supervision for a variety of organisations in Bristol including Women’s Aid, and Oasis-Talk.
I have previously been the services manager of The SWAN Project, a low-cost therapy centre in Bristol providing long-term counselling for people who struggle with alcohol. I managed around 60 therapists at different points in their counselling training, provided supervision and co-facilitated the in-house addiction specific training for the volunteer counsellors and psychotherapists.
I also guest lecture for local training colleges and manage the business development of Red Horse Foundation an equine assisted therapy provider in Gloucestershire where I deliver equine assisted therapy and supervision.
If you are interested in an alternative and exciting experiential form of supervision, I am now taking bookings for an Equine Assisted Supervision group in Stroud. This will be supervision for your counselling/psychotherapy practice with the aid of horses. No experience with horses is required, and is for anyone practicing counselling/psychotherapy. Please take a look at my ‘Events’ page for further information.
If you are outside of the Bristol area, I am now able to provide Skype sessions.
I am passionate about helping people make sense of their lives and fulfill their potential, and supporting those who do the same.
If you have any questions or would like to meet with me to see how we might work together, please get in touch on my ‘contact’ page.
I have Accredited Member status with The National Counselling Society and Registered Member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy
