Supervision with Shanti
My approach to supervision is perhaps best described as Person-Centred, although I am willing to bring all of my knowledge and experience of other approaches (as client, counsellor and supervisee) into service with you.  I see supervision as a space where you can reflect honestly about your work and it is my aim to support and resource you to find your own way with your professional work, through creating a non-threatening environment.  At its best, this is where true transformational learning and growth can occur.  I am open to working creatively with materials and objects that I make available in the space.

As Lead Counsellor for a local charity, I supervise counselling volunteers (one-to-one) and other professional staff (both one-to-one and in group).  I have been supervising since 2016 but prior to my career change in 2000, I had also been responsible for managing staff in the public sector.

My specialisms reflect my experience: I have worked as a counsellor with staff in the NHS, with students in Higher Education, with the bereaved in a hospice and as a Counselling Lecturer in Further Education; I have also worked for three years, one-to-one in the community, with people who have severe mental health issues.  This means I have a particular interest in: bereavement, disability, health-related concerns, stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma.

I offer a FREE 30-minute meeting, without obligation, to see if we are a good working 'fit' for each other.

Professional Memberships 
I am a registered member of British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and have been an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) since 2008. I adhere to the code of ethics of both organisations and they both have formal routes through which complaints can be heard, if they cannot be resolved in the first instance by talking to me (more information is available on their respective websites).
