I am an experienced person centred and integrative counsellor/psychotherapist offering Supervision to qualified counsellors and trainee counsellors. I endeavour to build a trusting relationship with my supervisees, so that you feel safe and confident to explore all aspects of your work. I will challenge and encourage you.
The way I work encompasses three main elements of the work:
Client work – working ethically
Yourself – what is going on for you that may be impacting on the work
House keeping – CPD, new regulations, BACP, etc
Trainee counsellors normally require several reports for college/portfolio. I do not charge extra for this as I believe this is part of the work and learning.
I'm also an experienced tutor delivering Independent Counselling Training, delivering ABC and CPCAB courses and provide counsellor and supervisor training and workshops, including Advanced Diploma, Level 5, Level 6 Certificate in Supervision and Working with Young People, Sexuality and Bereavement.
"In counselling as well as supervision I firmly believe that it's all about the relationship. When I feel safe, contained, supported and understood I feel free to be open, honest, vulnerable and genuine. As a supervisor, Tricia offers me all of the above and more. She is warm, approachable, accepting and congruent at all times. I am able to be myself without fear of judgement or belittlement. Importantly Tricia actively and continuously encourages, challenges and inspires me. Following our sessions, I feel that I grow both in confidence and learning. Invaluable."

"I first met Tricia as my group supervisor on a Level 4 Counselling Diploma Course and over the course of the year, I was very impressed by her knowledge, experience, insight and understanding of client work. Tricia has a calm, empathetic and supportive presence and this instils trust – I have never felt judged and this has encouraged me to be honest and reflective in my sessions with her"
"This year, Tricia is supervising me on a 1:1 basis on my counselling placement at a school and I feel inspired, encouraged and supported by her wealth of experience in this field. She also offers a genuine warmth and sense of humour to our sessions which I find of great value - I would highly recommend Tricia as a supervisor"
