I offer both 1:1 supervision and group reflective practice.
I work within the BACP ethical framework and value supervision /Reflective practice.
Susan holds secure boundaries in a very safe and caring way. As her supervisee I felt valued and appreciated and that she always supported and challenged me to work at my best. She brings warmth and humour to her relationships whilst maintaining professionalism and a calm strong presence. Her passion for her work shines bright and she is dedicated and very hard working. I would confidently and without hesitation recommend her to someone who needed a therapist or a supervisor .

As a trainee counsellor in my final year at UWE I was working for Susan as a placement. Susan to me, has always seemed very capable in her role. She works with a challenging client group, often challenging circumstances and there have been a lot of changes within the service. She is clear in her communication which I respond well to and have always found her supportive of me within my role and I feel the service is lucky to have her as the manager. K C.
I worked for Susan as a placement counsellor. Susan is a hardworking, committed individual and exciting manager. She has been at the helm in some turbulent times which include expansion of the service. Through my contact with Susan I have found her to be a clear communicator to both myself and the clients. She is approachable and if ever unavailable, always gives and alternative means of communication.
She has a vast experience which staff value and although she must get tired at times I always find her to respond with enthusiasm and care. Many clients see her as a mother figure and I feel this is due to her warm caring nature and good ethical boundaries. Colin B.

I have always been treated with great professionalism and respect by Susan over the few months I worked with her. She has given me every opportunity to prepare for my role as a trainee counsellor and I have been grateful for her support and extensive experience of the nature of issues I have been working with within the project. Susan is cheerful, unflappable, and it is obvious that she takes her responsibilities for ensuring he welfare and safety of the staff and residents very seriously. I can learn much from her approach as I hone my counselling skills, and my experience will no doubt do much to inform my future counselling practice. Laurence L.
I found Susan to be both a Democratic leader as in willing to listen and get input from staff and value opinions. Susan is highly trained as a professional who has lead through her experience. She is warm welcoming and has good morals and beliefs. I would say Susan is very resilient and flexible in any situation. She has wisdom and integrity. K G.
Susan supervised me for a couple of years when I was in training. She helped me in my learning and gave me support whenever I needed. I am a qualified counsellor myself now and valued her experience. Anon.
