Mates in Mind

I am a Person-centered integrative counsellor and supervisor and am committed to offering clients a space in which they feel safe and able to work towards a deeper understanding of themselves, can resolve their issues and move forward to a more fulfilled life. I work in and around the town of Street in Somerset.

I have a Christian faith and as such believe each individual person to be wonderfully unique and complex. I am comfortable with and have experience of working with clients of a similar faith background to my own and also with those holding completely different beliefs or none.

I offer clinical supervision in support of those who work in the helping professions and my experience includes working with counsellors, student counsellors, support workers and nursing staff, both privately and within an organisational setting.

As a supervisor, my goals are to facilitate a supervisee’s process of exploration and reflection on their work and therapeutic relationships, to aid the development of their own ‘internal supervisor’ and to also support supervisees in taking care of their own well-being, as well as that of their clients.

During the current Covid-19 situation, in order to safeguard my clients and supervisees and to minimise social contact, I am offering online sessions via the Zoom virtual meeting platform. This situation is continually being reassessed and I will, hopefully, return to welcoming clients into my therapy room in the near future.
