Private Practice and Supervision
Client Information Sheet
Counselling Contract 2023
£50 per 60 minute hour
Whatever your situation my aim as a therapist is to be as useful and helpful to you as possible. To help you clarify what is troubling you I listen carefully to what's been going on and what it is you're experiencing. I then support you to make sense of your experiences, feelings, thoughts, difficulties and wishes. We might think about how your here and now problems connect to your past relationships and experiences. Often what we went though as children have a tendency to keep following us around and we have to find a way of making peace with ourselves. If it feels right you may also want to explore how your faith or spirituality feeds into your life and relationships.
The ultimate aim of therapy is to help you recover, grow and mature into the unique, authentic adult you are. You will learn how to reconnect with yourself in a way that frees your true self and nurtures what I call your 'wounded inner child'. Therapy seeks to help you develop new skills and attitudes that enable you to enjoy a more satisfying relationship with yourself and others.
Types of Therapy: Humanistic, Integrative, Psychodynamic, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy

Clinical supervision information sheet and contract
I have worked as a clinical supervisor for six years. I qualified with a Diploma in Supervision with The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in 2020. I work with qualified and trainee therapists, both as individuals and sometimes in groups. I offer in person and online clinical supervision and often a combination of the two works best.
My approach as a clinical supervisor is as a developmentally based, relationally focused Integrative Psychotherapist. My understanding is that supervision is a professional, confidential, contracted, collaborative relationship between at least two people. Supervision is first and foremost a relationship, albeit a professional one, with one person having the responsibilities of a supervisor and the other(s) having responsibilities of supervisee. I seek to provide the relational conditions out of which you can explore your clinical work and circumstances with a view to safeguarding and developing the quality of your service. The aim of supervision is to support you to reflect on yourself as a practitioner and to get the support, encouragement and guidance you need to practice ethically and effectively. I also seek to help practitioners link practice to theory and theory and research to practice and become more assured in their life as a professional.
I also offer academic supervision.
I also offer pastoral supervision.
