Supervision is essential to good practice. Regular and on-going opportunities to reflect on all aspects of our practice in depth enable counsellors to develop the skills, qualities and personal resourcefulness to work effectively, safely and ethically.

I am deeply committed to my own supervision. It is the bedrock of both my therapy and supervision practice and, as such, allows you to feel confident in our work together.

Sam Simpson CounsellingI have experienced supervision in a variety of different forms over the course of my career and undergone extensive post-qualification person centred supervision training, which in turn has informed and deepened my own knowledge, skills and supervision practice.

I have many years experience of supervising health care professionals and counsellors working with children, young people and adults in a range of contexts, including the public, private, education and voluntary sectors. I offer both individual and group supervision as part of my independent practice and am a Metanoia-approved supervisor.

I also play an active role in teaching about supervision at undergraduate and post-qualification levels, promoting pro-supervision cultures and developing high quality supervision practice.
