I provide supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists, both on a 1-2-1 basis and in groups*. I am happy to meet with supervisees weekly, fortnightly or monthly depending on your caseload and accreditation needs.

I have worked in higher education for 30 years and currently teach on the post-graduate counselling and psychotherapy courses at The University of Brighton. This, in addition to my training and experience in coaching, equips me to offer mentorship for your therapy work.

Whilst my main mode of practice is as a Gestalt psychotherapist, I am also an experienced practitioner and teacher across the Humanistic paradigm. I can therefore offer supervision across Gestalt, Person-Centred and Transactional Analysis approaches. Other specialist areas in my supervision include:

  • helping you to develop an embodied approach to your work, using experiential approaches like Focusing
  • bringing the Buddhist dharma and practices into the therapy space
    working more in the transpersonal domain
  • helping your clients integrate a spiritual dimension to the therapeutic journey 

Robin Shohet, writer and trainer in therapeutic supervision, expresses a wish with which I deeply resonate – to help other’s flourish in their work. I am also influenced by Gaie Houston’s approach to supervision, especially how she considers three aspects to supervision, namely Policing, Plumbing and Poetry.

If you are interested in supervision of your counselling and psychotherapy with a UKCP registered psychotherapist, please contact me. *I would also be happy to hear from a groups or pairs of therapists wanting to explore group or shared supervision sessions.

The 3 Ps of supervision

Policing the term coined to describe the aspect of supervision concerned with boundary monitoring and the maintenance of a framework in which counselling and supervision can take place. It is concerned with ensuring that the counsellor is adhering to the ethical guidelines and working in the client’s best interest.


... in supervision is the creation of a space where supervisees have the freedom to tell back and explore their experience with the client. It involves the imaginative collaboration of supervisor and supervisee in gaining insight and empathy for the client. Where there have been difficulties in communication it allows for the supervisee to regain compassion and thereby work more effectively with the client.


...refers to the educative aspect of supervision in teaching supervisees how-to be more effective and competent in their therapeutic work. It includes knowledge of counselling and psychotherapy, understanding of human psychological development and competency in psychotherapeutic methods and skills. The supervisor’s attitude, patience and mind-set will also have an implicit impact on the learning of the supervisees.
