I am an experienced and qualified one to one and group supervisor of counsellors and psychotherapists.

For more than five years I have been supervising groups of trainee, qualified and accredited counsellors working on placement at Turning Point in Somerset, where I work as the Counselling Co-ordinator. Turning Point works with drug and alcohol misusers and I support our trainees in their work with our vulnerable adults.

Before this I supervised trainee counsellors at a youth centre in Kilburn, London, while they worked with young people aged 14-25. I worked in Kilburn for about 2 years.


Counselling Supervision in Exeter

As a supervisor, I believe in your self-efficacy and trust in the judgements you have made with your clients. My golden rule is to not to tell you what to do with your clients but support you to finding your own solutions. In this way, your learning is deeper and more authentic.

I am comfortable with providing advice when asked but work hard to nuture your self confidence and your inner supervisor.

The BACP recommend counsellors have 1.5 hours of supervision per calendar month. When we negotiate how often we should meet for supervision, I will take into account all of your supervision sources (peer, group, co-supervision) and advise where necessary. For most of my supervisees, meeting once a month is usually adequate.


Supervision Qualifications

I have more than five years experience in delivering supervision and hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Supervision gained through KRCS (Kathy Raffles Counselling Services) and the University of Gloucester in 2013. I am on the Iron Mill list of approved supervisors and  regularly attend the supervisors networking group at Iron Mill College Exeter where best practice and CPD is shared. I am also a supervisor and trainer for ARC in Axminster.

Like all my work, we will meet at my room in Holmedale Health in central Exeter.
