Supervision can be both exciting and challenging as you consider your client and your own work from different perspectives. I support counsellors to gain greater insight into their clients' lives as they explore and reflect on their counselling style and relationship with their clients.
In supervision, I work in a collaborative and creative way, supporting counsellors to improve and develop their skills and abilities within their therapeutic relationship with their clients. I believe that we all learn by example, and aim to create a welcoming, non-judgmental and confidential space. As your supervisor, I hope you will feel respected, safe and confident to bring all manner of issues about your counselling work, including what isn't going well, to our sessions.
I am also the Manager of Caris Islington Bereavement Service where I supervise counsellors working with both adults and children. I began at Caris more than 10 years ago as a volunteer counsellor of adults. Recognising the need for a bereavement service for children, I initiated the development of Rucksack the children’s bereavement service. This service has grown to include The Basement for teenagers.
