How I Work
I hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Person Centred supervision which was awarded to me by Temenos.
As someone who has received and provided Person Centred counselling and supervision I have seen and experienced the benefits that this way of working can bring.
I believe that by establishing and maintaining a healthy and collaborative relationship where supervisees can experience the core conditions of empathy, genuineness and acceptance, a safe enough space can be created where various issues relating to client work, practice and professional development can be addressed, discussed and explored in a way that is helpful to the supervisee.
My role is to work with what the supervisee brings to supervision, in a non-judgemental way that can help develop their practice and help them grow as a counsellor. I believe I can provide the appropriate environment where supervisees can discuss any difficulties they may be experiencing, explore alternative approaches, be open to appropriate challenge and highlight what is going well.
I believe supervision should provide supervisees with the opportunity to reflect on their practice which includes discussing client work and exploring other appropriate issues relevant to the world of counselling and psychotherapy.
Supervision is available face to face and via FaceTime.

Supervisees have given permission for their comments to be used on this site.
"Phil has been my supervisor through my counselling training and subsequent counselling position in further education. Phil is very supportive and professional. I feel that I can be honest about my work and areas that I feel need improvement or exploration without being judged. I leave our sessions feeling like I have moved forward, knowing what my best next step might be. Phil is knowledgeable about the ethical framework and current legal issues and is happy to recommend where I might find information I need/might be relevant to my exploration. I am very happy to recommend him to other people as he has been invaluable to me."
Charlotte Anderton, College Counsellor
"Phil has been a very supportive supervisor. I was extremely nervous to start seeing clients as I am a trainee counsellor but with the help of him I feel so much more confident. He is easy to talk to and very helpful and he also has been very flexible with his schedule. If I ever have issues with an appointment we have booked he will try his best to fit me in at a more convenient time."
