Supervision with Shanti

Supervision is a reflective space to be open with yourself about all apsects of your work - to celebrate successes as well as review decisions, ethical tensions and any regrets or 'mistakes'. It is a place for learning but transformation can only occur in a non-threatening environment where there is trust. This is what I aim to build with you, so welcome regular feedback on how you experience our supervision relationship in order that I too continue to learn and grow.

My Experience

I became a counselling supervisor in 2016 and, subsequently, qualified in relational supervision in 2018. My approach to supervision is person-centred and embodied. I bring professional knowledge along with experience of being a client, counsellor and supervisee myself for around 20 years.

As Lead Counsellor for a local charity, I supervise counselling volunteers and other staff. Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked in the public sector for 17 years and was a team leader. During my counselling training, I worked as a self-employed stress management consultant and trainer, whilst also undertaking placements in the NHS and in a University. On qualifying, I undertook counselling in a local hospice and a lottery-funded project. I went on to become a counselling lecturer in Further Education and adult education tutor. I have delivered many courses on Mindfulness in various roles and introduced it to people with severe mental health issues. As someone with a lifetime's passion for dance, I have a keen interest in embodiment and how this can reflect an individual's life experience as well as offer deep insight in their therapeutic journey.

My Specialisms

I have been in private practice since 2004 and work solely with adults. Over the years, I have gained experience in working with many issues, particularly:
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Loss Adjustment
  • Bereavement
  • Confidence & Self-Esteem
  • Disability & Health-Related Issues.

I offer a free 20-minute phone call to start exploring if we are a good 'fit' - something I see as a mutual process. For further details see the 'Fees' page.
