"It opens up and is flexible. It's an oasis, a valet service, a large mirror and a retreat."

- Michael Carroll, 'Supervision – A Journey of Lifelong Learning'

My approach to supervision

I am a qualified integrative supervisor and enjoy supporting counsellors and psychotherapists in their work with clients by drawing on a range of therapeutic approaches. Whether you are newly qualified and at the very beginning of your practice or already well established, I am happy to offer supervision via video and phone at a time and with a frequency and session length suited to you. Some supervisees prefer shorter weekly or fortnightly sessions, and others are more comfortable with longer sessions every four weeks.

Above all, my aim is to create a safe and non-judgmental space for supervisees to feel able to bring any issues or concerns. Supervision in my view is a space for reflection and re-experiencing where we can freely and creatively explore challenges and celebrate achievements. Empathy, warmth and authenticity are key qualities of such an affirming supervisory relationship.


I have been working as an integrative therapist for over a decade and have been an active participant in a number of different group and peer supervision settings. In June 2018, I formalized my role as supervisor with the completion of the Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals and Groups with The Grove.

Our first

The first session gives us both the opportunity to consider whether and how we wish to work together.  As an integrative supervisor, my aim is to tailor my approach to your needs and preferences as a supervisee.


I may ask you questions about your previous experiences of supervision, your therapeutic approach and what you are looking for in a supervisor.


As part of the first session, we will also review and discuss the terms of the supervision agreement so that we can start this important professional relationship with clarity and transparency.

How to get the most out of supervision
  • Preparing for supervision and being clear about your objectives for each session

  • Being open to feedback and alternative perspectives in relation to your practice

  • Being honest in bringing doubts and concerns about your work and relevant aspects of your personal life

  • Maintaining a commitment to your continued personal and professional development

  • Consulting your supervisor in case of emergency, for example if there are safeguarding issues

  • Developing your awareness of existing or potential ethical dilemmas and exploring them in supervision

  • Opening up a dialogue if there are difficulties in the supervisory relationship
