I’m a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor in Sheffield UK, with many years NHS and private practice experience, and 4 years online supervision experience. I offer supervision for qualified person-centred and humanistic counsellors/therapists.

I would hope to encourage you to explore work with clients without feeling defensive or judged. You may also wish to be open to a fresh perspective on your practice, and may appreciate appropriate challenge in the spirit of mutual interest in developing your learning edge.

My aim is to help you develop in your reflective practice. I would hope to support you in making ongoing and richer connections between your theory and practice.
I aim to offer a safe and stimulating space in which you can share both successes and dilemmas. We will mutually explore best practice and find creative ways to express it in your work.

I work with close regard to counselling contexts, whether place of work or training organisation.

I have been working in mental health (NHS, private practice, counselling agencies, EAP, universities) since 2002, and am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor. I have substantial experience offerring individual and group supervision to counsellors/therapists in private practice, to NHS staff, to staff in counselling agencies, and to non-counsellor helping professionals.

Supervision is available in 45 minute, one-hour 90 minute or 2-hour sessions. Fees are £45 per hour. The BACP Ethical Framework (or equivalent) will generally inform our discussions around ethical issues you encounter.

I work Tuesday to Thursday  Thursday daytimes and evenings. Choosing the right supervisor is important to your practice. I welcome you to come and talk openly and freely about your supervision needs.

Do contact me on 07880 864354, or via, if you’d like to find out more in a non-chargeable introductory discussion.
