It is important to me to offer Supervisees a strong and warm person-to-person relationship. Relationships are the centre of our work together, and with our clients. Based on this, we can honestly examine our practice and ensure we support our clients in the way we aspire to.

I use the Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision (Shohet & Hawkins). I am about to start training in specific online training also.

I am very happy to have a chat about what you expect from Supervision, and how we might work together to support you and your clients.

Why I’m offering this service:

I am excited to offer Supervision as a reflective practice for individuals and groups, across different modalities. I really enjoy working together in this way. Supervision has always been the cornerstone of my practice – a source of support, comfort and insight. I have valued respect and trust in my own supervisory relationships and have found this has, in turn, improved my client relationships. For me, it is a very important place for open discussion and reflection on my work. I would like to offer others the space and trust that I have received. Supportive, honest, relational Supervision has given me the permission to work from an authentic place, to change as a therapist and to make mistakes and learn from them.

I am currently offering Supervision at a reduced or negotiated rate while I complete my Supervisory training.

I have supervision in place for my work as a therapist and as a supervisor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Contacting a therapist for the first time can daunting and sometimes it can be hard to do. It takes courage. It can feel like a big step into the unknown. Here is a guide which will hopefully reassure you in this process:

1. Initial contact

I am the only person who accesses this phone and email address. This means that you can be assured of total confidentiality. When you first get in touch, please leave the following details:

  • Your name
  • Your contact email / telephone number
  • Any special instructions e.g. convenient times to call, whether it is ok to leave a message when calling etc.

I tend to just say I am responding to your enquiry when I leave messages – just in case you don’t want others sharing your number / email address to know you have been in touch.

2. Telephone conversation

This conversation can be brief, and confirm:

  • Appointment time and date
  • Location
  • Fees

It is natural to want to chat briefly and to see if you feel comfortable talking to me.

3. Our first meeting

When we first meet, we will explore what you want to achieve in counselling or psychotherapy. If you’re still not sure which is appropriate, that can be discussed too, as well as any questions you have.

Don’t worry if you are early for your appointment – the locations that I work from have receptions where you can wait. During this first meeting, a decision can be made whether we can work together. You can then arrange the time and day of your regular weekly session.

I offer sessions in Warwick Avenue, close to Paddington. The address of the centre is West Hampstead Therapy Rooms, Unit 8, 224 Iverson Road West Hampstead, London, NW6 2HL
