You should be really proud of yourself for being here.

I know it isn't easy.

But nor is what you are going through and now you are here, I can help.

I am a Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor and I specialise in:

⭐️ Neurodiversity

⭐️ Trauma

⭐️ Feeling unfulfilled, lost or stuck

I work online with adults, adolescents, couples and parents.

I also offer walk & talk sessions in Colchester, Essex.

I offer flexible sessions so that you do not have to attend weekly or at the same time or day.

Clinical Supervision for Professionals:

Group Supervision: Availability on a new monthly supervision group starting in February, held on a Friday morning. Each group will have a max of 4 members and will be 1.5 hours. In these groups we will reflect on your client work; themes in therapy; and ethical frameworks. (NCS and BACP members can claim half the time of this group towards your monthly supervision requirement.)

Individual Supervision: I currently have availability for new 1:1 supervisees looking for a regular monthly session. If you are looking for ad hoc or emergency supervision please do contact me as we may be able to fit something in.

My supervision specialisms are:

⭐️ Private Practice

⭐️ Neurodivergent therapists

⭐️ Therapists who have had previous difficult supervision experiences

I welcome newly qualified and trainee counsellors.

I can supervise your practice with:

⭐️ Adults

⭐️ Adolescents

⭐️ Children

⭐️ Couples

⭐️ Consultative Supervision (supervision of supervision)
