Mentoring for new therapists
Wellbeing and case supervision
Training and workshops
I offer trauma informed supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists working primarly within the framework of the Seven-eyed model. EMDR trained and experienced in supervising professionals working with complex developmental trauma, I take a collaborative approach, inviting deep exploration and creativity in our work together.
I have a special interest in working with therapists who are new to private practice. I believe that there is limited support available to some really great counsellors/psychotherapists starting out in practice outside of an agency or employment setting and sadly, many feel like they should avoid taking the leap into this enriching way of working due to lack of knowledge and often, confidence.
As well as supervising clinical casework, I offer a unique blend of mentoring and coaching to provide new therapists in private practice a clear pathway to building a successful business, within ethical and professional boundaries.
I am currently formalising my experience and learning of supervision with the leading experts in this field, Robin Shohet and Joan Wilmot, co founders of the Seven-Eyed model by undertaking their renowned Certificate in Supervision.

Group supervision offers a hive mind of different perspectives, exploration and reflection as well as opportunity for immediacy within the safety of an ethically and professional facilitated group. For therapists, our work can be isolating and many of us relish the prospect of connecting and exploring our work with other professionals in our field.
I run a regular group supervision for therapists new to private practice, which is hugely beneficial in developing confidence, sharing strategies and interventions and creating sustainable and successful practices.

I really enjoy working as a mentor to new qualified therapists starting up or are in the early stages of establishing their private practice.
When I finished my counselling training remember I vividly recall feeling overwhelmed as I grappled with the decision of which direction to take in my therapy work. The allure of working in private practice beckoned to me, yet I was plagued by self-doubt, fearful that I didn't know enough to be 'good enough'. Imposter syndrome was real as the narrative that is common in our training is to wait for a certain period or pursue additional diplomas to ensure readiness for a private practice setting.
I remember feeling frustrated, I knew after working within various agency settings that I was ready to start my practice and committed wholeheartedly to working within the boundaries of my level of knowledge and expertise at the time but it still felt like I would be looked upon with disproval for taking the leap too early.
I do believe that it is so important that you set up your own practice only when you have acquired the knowledge and skills to do so competently and ethically but I also think that we all have our different levels of comfort, confidence and support to enable us to do this when the time feels right, rather than being led by the prescriptive two year timescale. I advocate for a more personalised approach, aligning with one's readiness and circumstances.
I was lucky to have had the privilege of working with an exceptional supervisor who not only guided me clinically but also provided invaluable assistance in navigating the intricacies of setting up and sustaining a successful therapy practice. I do, however, realise that not all supervisors are equipped with the knowledge to do this.
Through my mentorship program, I aim to bridge the gap between clinical supervision, coaching, and training, equipping you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence required to establish a thriving, ethical, and sustainable practice.
My mentoring service encompasses a comprehensive range of topics, including ethics, contracting, financial considerations, identifying a niche, effective marketing strategies, website development, leveraging online directories, harnessing the power of social media, managing ethical dilemmas, implementing effective interventions, and overcoming imposter syndrome.

I currently provide supervision to professionals in the education and welfare sectors, working closely with staff who work with children who have experienced complex and developmental trauma. My work extends to a variety of roles, including safeguarding teams, head teachers and pastoral staff, all of whom benefit from robust supervision to reflect on and explore the impact of their work and indeed home life on their emotional wellbeing as well as providing a space for considering team dynamics and how to improve relationships within the workplace.
The supervision sessions also enable professionals to explore any blind spots and emotional triggers that may arise in their work as well as providing psychoeducation that can be integrated into their professional relationships.

Counselling can be an incredibly beneficial resource for employees. In today's fast-paced and often high-stress work environments, counselling can provide employees with the tools they need to manage their emotions, deal with challenging situations, and maintain a healthy work-life balance. Here are some of the key benefits of counselling for employees:
Reduces stress and anxiety: Many employees experience high levels of stress and anxiety in the workplace, which can negatively impact their productivity, engagement, and overall well-being. Counselling provides employees with a safe and supportive space to talk about their concerns, fears, and worries, and can help them develop coping strategies to manage their stress and anxiety.
Improves communication skills: Effective communication is essential in the workplace, whether it's communicating with colleagues, managers, or clients. Counselling can help employees improve their communication skills, including active listening, assertiveness, and conflict resolution, which can enhance their ability to work effectively with others.
Boosts self-confidence: Low self-esteem and self-doubt can hold employees back from reaching their full potential in the workplace. Counselling can help employees identify and challenge negative thought patterns, build self-awareness, and develop a more positive self-image, which can boost their self-confidence and overall sense of well-being.
Enhances work-life balance: Many employees struggle to balance their work and personal lives, which can lead to burnout and stress. Counselling can help employees identify priorities, set boundaries, and develop time-management skills, which can improve their work-life balance and reduce the risk of burnout.
Increases job satisfaction: Employees who feel supported and valued by their employers are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs and remain loyal to their organizations. Counselling can demonstrate to employees that their employer cares about their well-being and is invested in their personal and professional growth, which can increase job satisfaction and employee retention.
In summary, counselling can provide employees with a range of valuable tools and strategies to manage their emotions, communicate effectively, boost self-confidence, improve work-life balance, and increase job satisfaction. By investing in counselling for their employees, organisations can create a more supportive and positive workplace culture, which can benefit both employees and the organisation as a whole.
