I have an Advanced Diploma in Supervision from The University of Warwick. I offer supervision for both qualified counsellors and counsellors in training.

I believe that the main aim of supervision is to help you grow in understanding
of yourself and of the therapeutic process. Supervision will be led by you and
my aim is to that we can co create a relationship which is open, accepting and
supportive. I will not tell you how you must work with clients as I feel it is
important for you to find your own way, one that is real for you. I may offer
examples of clients I’ve worked with or things that I may have done in similar
situations. This will be for us to discuss or to think about and not to say
that I think that’s the only way. 

My way of working is to focus on you and your understanding so will not be solely
focused on your clients. Please bring all of yourself and by that I mean for you
to bring aspects of what is happening for you in your personal life. I think
it’s important to include this in supervision as this can have a huge impact on
your counsellingwork. If you are in training then please also feel free to bring any
 aspects of your training and any questions or thoughts you’re having about theory
 and how this relates to practice. 

I believe it’s important that supervision is a 2 way process and so I welcome and
encourage a continuous review of the process. What I mean is that if there’s
anything you find isn’t working for you, or if something is particularly
helpful, I would like to hear about it. This helps to make sure that you are
getting your needs met.

My aim is that we can create a relationship built on mutual respect. One in which we
can both be open and real. If we can do that then hopefully you will feel free
to be transparent particularly about times when perhaps you feel you have ‘got
it wrong’ as these are the greatest opportunities for learning and growth. It’s
important to me that we have some fun while we are doing all of this too!

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
