Just as I feel passionate about therapists experiencing being clients themselves as an integral part of training and later on as-and-when needed (see below), so I’m passionate about adequate supervision – in terms of quality and quantity. And, just as relationship lies at the heart of therapy, so it does in supervision. The quest for a supervisor is a process in itself, assessing your own particular needs and whether, and how, your supervisor responds.

I welcome enquiries from both experienced therapists and newly-qualified practitioners.

Having worked with many supervisors since I began practising twelve years ago, I know what it is both to dread and to look forward to supervision sessions. The latter works best! Feeling safe in supervision allows for the deepest personal enquiries and challenges.

I trained in Therapeutic Counselling in Dartington, Devon and qualified with CAPAB in 2000. Since then, I have established a thriving private practice in central Exeter.

Integral to my training was self-enquiry, including in-depth personal therapy. My work is informed by continuing professional study and practice and by my own therapeutic process. I am committed to on-going personal exploration, for my own sake and essentially for my clients’.
