Barbara Matheson

I’m an experienced supervisor working with qualified counsellors, student counsellors and people working in job roles where they can benefit from this type of one-to-one support e.g., managers, support workers and those in health/ wellbeing settings.

My main approach is person centred although I’m very experienced at working with, and supporting counsellors from other modalities. I have significant experience of supporting student and trainee counsellors both in Edinburgh and now in Exeter.  I’m on the list of approved supervisors for the Iron Mill and Exeter Colleges, Margaret Jackson Centre and Heartwood.  I offer a free half an hour meeting, either face to face or by Zoom to discus how we might work together.

I offer clinical supervision in Exeter and online.

I’m comfortable working with counsellors and psychotherapists from different theoretical approaches. In addition to my clinical and supervision practice until recently I sat on the UKCP – Humanistic & Integrative & Psychotherapy College (HIPC), Training Standards Committee (TSC).

John’s Profile


Ilari De Simoni

I am a qualified clinical supervisor including in-person, online, and telephone work.

The clinical supervision I offer reflects my person-centred counselling approach and incorporates trauma-informed work. In fact, I have many years of experience in working with trauma, in particular working with sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse. I also have mentoring experience from my previous managerial role at Devon Rape Crisis & Sexual Abuse Services. I now work in a NHS IAPT setting as a counsellor for depression.

I aim to offer a safe space where you can become more confident in your therapeutic work, develop your style, and look at your processes.

Supervision sessions are held in person in Exeter (only on Thursday and/or Friday), by telephone or online.  I am happy to arrange a free initial 15-minute call with you to discuss your needs and to see how we can best work together. Please contact me via email or text message and I will contact you to arrange an appointment for the call.

Gina Collins

I’m a qualified and experienced clinical supervisor, working with counsellors at all levels of experience. I have an integrative approach to supervision, which reflects my wide range of training and experience in different therapeutic modalities, and so I may draw upon elements of person-centred, CBT and transactional analysis during our work together, as appropriate. My aim is to provide meaningful support and to enable your professional development as a practitioner through reflective work, collegial collaboration and by providing a nurturing environment that will encourage your safe, ethical, creative and effective practice.

Please get in contact at to arrange a free half-hour meeting (either in person or online) where we can discuss your supervision requirements and how we might work together.
