I have worked as Therapist for the Education, Local Government, The NHS, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and in private practice for many years. I have considerable experience in helping children, families, adults and couples overcome their difficulties so they may enjoy life. I am also very experienced in giving supervision to other therapists, and to counsellors working with children and adults. I offer supervision to many different professionals to help identify how to support the people they are working with and reduce the worry or stress they may be experiencing due to carrying heavy case loads or complex cases. I  offer student counsellor supervision for trainee counsellors. Please feel free to give me a ring to chat about supervision and if there is anything you may need to know .
