I am an Accredited Member of the BACP, and fully subscribe to its Ethical Framework. I offer supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors individuallly and in groups, based on Hawkins and Shohet’s Seven-Eyed Model and Wosket and Page’s Cyclical Model of Supervision.
I am an experienced practitioner, who will work collaboratively with you to maintain and develop your ethical practice. My approach to supervision is integrative and relational, drawing upon my own clinical work over the past 10 years with diverse clients in a variety of settings. I am calm, curious, open, knowledgeable about different modalities, and will provide empathetic support and challenge for your challenging work with clients. I encourage work with unconscious processes, to help identify what may be going on within the therapeutic and supervisory relationship. My original training used Clarkson’s five-strand model of the therapeutic relationship, and I have deepened my understanding with further study of humanistic, attachment and contemporary psychotherapy theory, together with mindfulness-based therapy, teaching and practice. My supervision practice is supported and under-pinned by integrative mindfulness-based supervision and my own personal mindfulness practice.
I currently supervise a group of trainee counsellors at a community bereavement agency in North London, and individual counsellors in my private practice locations in Barnsbury and Chancery Lane. I am in the process of studying for a Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling. Supervision at the Mary Ward Centre, and will complete this in June 2019. In my former career as a barrister, I had extensive experience of supervising trainee and junior practitioners in their client work.
I charge £50 for a 50 minute supervision session, and these generally take place in the late morning or afternoons on weekdays. I also keep 2 lower cost (sliding scale) supervision spaces for trainee and recently qualified counsellors who have a low household income. Once we have an ongoing supervisory relationship, I can also offer additional or occasional sessions on Skype.
