Why Choose Me As Your Supervisor?

Quite simply, because I can make a difference to your practice.

I know what it is like to be a therapist, I have built up a busy successful practice and know what it is like to go through phases of being quiet and also, feeling overwhelmed with clients. I can work with you at whatever stage your business is at right now.

I find I can put people at ease and make sense of things, knowing what questions to ask for you to take advantage of your skills.

I would say I have an analytical mind so given a problem, I look for an opportunity. Faced with difficulty, I am optimistic and look for a way forward. I notice the things that are often overlooked, like successes or achievements and I have the ability to recognise what will help my supervisee to make the most any situation.

I am not opinionated but I am happy to share my opinion if it helps. I specialise in supporting my supervisee’s, not only to reach their full potential but also be successful.

It is what I love about my work, being able to build a bigger picture of what is happening, with the client, within yourself and within your business…..ultimately I work with supervisee’s to be confident in who they are and what they offer – making a difference.
