I am currenly offering Clinical Supervision to qualified and trainee practitioners in counselling and psychotherapy from my office in Preston and also from a designated room in my home in Horwich, Bolton.
My experience has led me to work for the Primary Care Trust, Social Services Children's Services and Vulnerable Adults Services. My core experience has come from running and developing my own successful private practice but I have also worked extensively with young people (10-19 years old) within an organisation for people who have experienced sexual violence/sexual trauma. I have also worked as a therapist for two years for a local Primary Care Trust in the Muscular-Skeletal Department of a busy clinic.
My MSc. thesis was in the area of psychotherapeutic treatment of clients who have experienced sexual violence/abuse & trauma, however I have a wealth of experience of working with most life issues. My Bachelor's Degree (Hons) dissertation was based in Ethics.
I was trained for Clinical Supervision in Hawkins & Shohet's 7 Stage Process model which is a versatile model enabling me to work with supervisees from most (by choice, not all) modalities. I enjoy this aspect of my work very much and enjoy sharing knowledge and experience whilst providing a safe 'holding' environment where you can explore your own process whilst developing, nurturing and maintaining your own ethical practice.
The first session will last up to half an hour and is free of charge. This is a chance to get to know each other and see if we can work together.
Fees are as follows: £50 per hour for either qualified or trainee practitioners.
