Clinical Supervision

Supervision is an important part of a therapists practice and ongoing supervision is often required by Counselling and Psychotherapy organisations such as the BACP, UKCP and NCS. I can offer fortnightly or monthly supervision, 1-2-1 or group work. I work to the Seven-Eyed Supervision model, developed by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet.

My personal client work involves me working closely with LGBTQ+ communities, something I am passionate about. Meaning I also offer a safe space for queer therapists to explore their LGBTQ+ client work. 


Supervision can help:  

  • Ensure that therapists are working safely and ethically.

  • Give therapists a safe space to reflect on their work.

  • Help therapists build on their knowledge, understanding and expertise.

  • Help therapists understand the impact their client work is having on them and their work. 

  • Help support therapists personal growth, development and self-care.

I can offer a supportive, kind, non-judgemental space to help you explore your therapeutic work. I am relaxed, fun, yet professional. I have extensive experience with a wide range of clients, having worked with both adults and young people. I am a qualified supervisor with a diploma in supervision.


I have been working in private practice since 2018 and worked for several agencies as a therapist including Place 2 Be, St Christopher’s Hospice and METRO charity. I currently volunteer as a supervisor for Willows in Swindon and am a Counselling Tutor for level 2 and 3 students. 

Much of my work is with members of the LGBTQIA+ communities, being queer myself this is something I am incredibly passionate about. I am also neurodiverse and embrace my different way of thinking and use it to better my clinical and supervision work.

What People Say

Tom has been a fantastic supervisor for me, making me feel comfortable to be myself. He is professional and yet incredibly easy to talk to and makes supervision pleasurable.


I always feel challenged in my thinking and ways of working best for my clients, and yet reassured of my skills as a counsellor.  He shows great knowledge in the theory and helps me to look at different ways of working.  I would happily recommend him as a supervisor.

Tom creates a supportive relationship where I have space to analyse my work in a safe environment. 

In the short time we’ve worked together, I’ve become more confident in my practice through his guidance. 

I look forward to a long supervision relationship with Tom that is engaging and challenging in equal measure.
