About Supervision?

Regular and on-going supervision is a distinctive professional requirement of the counselling profession as well as many others. I am experienced in Supervision of counsellors, counselling trainees and teaching & support staff as well as many others. I am an approved Supervisor with the National Counselling Society


Having the right Supervisor is the most important factor for successful and fulfilling practice. It will help you feel supported, nurtured and develop your practice in a way that makes you feel safe.

If you are looking for a supervisor then why not come and meet me. The initial meet is free and will allow you to see if we fit; there is no obligation as I know from experience finding the right person to work with is imperative especially when things get tough. You need someone to celebrate the good but help you pick through the not so good. I will be that person for you

Trainee Counsellors

As a trainee counsellor your first choice of Supervisor is vital to your continued development and success. There are many aspects to good supervision that will assist you to develop in your new career, these will develop as your practice develops.

If you are a trainee counsellor then I am the Supervisor that will help you to make the best of this worthwhile relationship. The Supervision you have as a trainee will assist with your learning, supporting your work in placement and to achieve your qualification. A good Supervisor will walk beside you as you develop in skill and confidence.

I hold a Post Graduate Degree in Clinical Supervision and a teaching qualification that makes me especially equipped to provide what you need if you are in training. If you are qualified then I will support and guide you to continue along the path to provide ethical, safe and rewarding practice for your clients.

Supervision of Supervisors

As a supervisor of other's practice, being a gatekeeper for all those clients can be a rough path to forge but with the right supervision that journey is made easier and more enjoyable. I have the skills to help you be the best supervisor you can be whilst supporting and encouraging your charges without diminishing your self.

I have sound knowledge not only of theory of practice but theory in practice and sharing this knowledge with trainee and developing counsellors is my passion; like counselling, supervision can help you to find your way in the dark. Supervision is flexible and can be tailored to your own needs and help you make sense of your work life.

What my clients  are saying

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Catherine for the Supervision experience she afforded me at the beginning of my Level 4 Diploma course. What shone through for me, was her professionalism, her integrity and dedication along with her ethical approach to all things counselling. Her wealth of experience made me feel confident that the supervisory support she offered me came from a place of both understanding and experience.

We were able to establish a really positive Supervisor/Supervisee relationship straight away, where I felt fully supported. This helped build my confidence,

especially during the early stages of my placement.

Catherine's in depth and current knowledge of the level 4 Diploma course I was undertaking was also invaluable when addressing the educational facet of my Supervision.

So, for anyone out there looking for a Supervisor I simply cannot recommend Catherine highly enough!!
