Take time to reflect and review your practice with someone who understands the impact of running a heart-centred business and working with humans!

Are you running a team, an organisation, a charity or your own business?

🙋 Feeling a little overwhelmed?

🙋 Worried that you may be working outside of your ‘scope of practice’

🙋 Concerned about disclosures and the appropriate safeguarding response?

🙋 In need of an independent, highly confidential sounding board⁠?

🙋 Finding team or client issues tricky?

🙋 Over-giving and feeling burnt-out but not sure how to make it stop?!

🙋 Concerned about remaining ethical?

🙋 Not sure if your nervous system can keep going like this?

Sounds like you could do with clinical supervision.

As a social worker I know how invaluable supervision has been for me over the last 20 years, and it’s helped me excel in my coaching practice too. 


Creating a space for you to talk about how things are affecting you on a personal level is my priority and I offer and facilitate the discussion of a range of issues that arise from being in relationship with other humans in a work setting. 


I do this in a structured, supportive way to improve your well-being, your work environment, your practice and your desired outcomes…

My super power is being completely un-shockable!

Genuinely, I have worked with sex workers for 2 decades. 

You can say it all in this space, without fear of judgement.

That client that is driving you up the wall, team member who triggers you every time they speak..

All welcome.


Who needs supervision?

If you’re a therapist or coach you are supporting and ‘holding’ your clients through challenging periods of transition and growth - in short, it can be pretty draining.


You’re working at deep levels of inquiry and change, which means the inherent demands of this work require you to be well-supported so you can do your best work.


And if you’re a team manager, charity CEO or social worker, you know that the job often means being under high pressure. Our work can be super stressful and occasionally traumatic.


So, whether you’re a frontline social worker, a team manager or maybe working in another social care setting, effective supervision helps you to do your job well. 

I also support several CEOs and leaders within charity and public sectors who need a safe space to reflect, pause, and breathe again, so that they can support their teams, whilst also tending to their own self-care.

What’s so great about supervision?

Supervision is an opportunity for you to have protected time with an experienced peer to talk through the impact that your work is having on you personally. It’s crucial for you to let off steam and talk through challenges so you can find solutions.

It’s also a good time to explore your decision-making processes and reflect on whether this is as person-centred and ethical as it should be.


Supervision is essential for your own wellbeing and professional development, which then helps you to achieve the best outcomes for the people you work with.

And that’s why you do what you do right? To improve their lives! But not to lose yourself in the process!

YOU matter, you being OK matters…

‘I’ve worked with Karen for over 2 years and in that time she has become attuned to my peaks and troughs, the ways in which I feel insecure and doubt myself, and has learnt my strengths. She reflects all of this back to me, reframing it, helping me to calm my nervous system whilst helping me see the good in myself. She asks brave questions of me that I need to give a brave answer to. But never to her, to myself. Karen has always made me feel held, safe and supported.She is an incredible human and she encourages me to be one too, and helps me believe that I can be.’
