In my clinical supervision practice I engage supervisees in the supervision process within a respectful, warm and safe environment. My vision is to help free individual practitioners to recognize their unique value, strengths and life purpose, and pursue inspired lives. Being a psychotherapist or counsellor is hard work as well as personally rewarding and enriching. I resource and support practitioners, working to prevent 'Burnout' by promoting health in the mind, body and soul.
I provide Clinical Supervision to practitioners looking for expert support and care navigating the complexities of current psychotherapeutic and mental health support work. A Clinical Social Worker and accredited mental health Social Worker, I have many years experience as a clinical supervisor. I have supervised practitioners from many different training backgrounds including Psychologists and ACAP qualified as well as Social Workers. I specialise in helping less experienced counsellors set up and maintain their own successful private practice. An area of speciality is assisting supervisees to avoid or manage compassion fatigue or 'burnout'.
