I am supervised at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London.

All counsellors and psychotherapists receive supervision but because I am in training, my sessions are recorded and a small portion transcribed by myself  then presented to my supervision group.  

This extra layer of supervision ensures that I am providing the absolute best support and service for you.
Names and any identifying factors are changed and I receive feedback and guidance on my contribution in the sessions.
