Therapeutic Supervision

Supervision for counsellors and hypnotherapists in Plymouth and online

As a supervisor, my aim is to provide you with a welcoming and supportive environment where you can review your clinical work and explore your continuing professional development needs so that you can safely and ethically deliver the best possible service to your clients. One-to-one supervision sessions are available at my practice in Plymouth, or online via Zoom.

I have just completed a Level 6 Certificate in Therapeutic Supervision accredited by the CPCAB (Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) and will receive notification of qualification in September. To comply with my professional bodies’ ethical guidelines, I am only offering supervision for counselling until I receive my full qualification. This will be at a discounted rate of £30 per hour until end of August 2022.  After that, my fee will increase to my usual rate of £60 an hour.

What I bring as a supervisor

I qualified as a counsellor in 2008 and have run a successful private practice working with adults in Plymouth ever since. I gained registered accredited status with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) for my counselling practice in 2015. I also qualified as a hypnotherapist that same year and subsequently gained accredited status with the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy) in 2021. I have regular supervision for all my counselling, hypnotherapy and supervision work.

As well as working in private practice, I’ve worked as a counsellor in GP practices, and provided counselling for health insurance companies and local Plymouth businesses. I’m a published author, having co-written and edited the book ‘The Art of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy: A Collection of Case Studies’. I’m also published in a peer-reviewed scholarly journal for a review of the research into the effectiveness of hypnotherapy for IBS. I was awarded a First Class Honours Degree in Professional Development in Mental Health in 2021. I am also a visiting lecturer on the Foundation Course in Solution Focused Therapy at the University of Plymouth.
