  • >Supervisor Alasdair Stokeld

I have over twenty five years experience as a supervisor and am registered as such with with UKCP (CPJA).

I've enjoyed supervising colleagues from a variety of therapy trainings and professional backgrounds and am a recognised supervisor for most psychotherapy trainings in the Yorkshire/Lancashire area. I've had the pleasure of working with counsellors, art therapists, medical and nursing staff, psychoanalytic therapists, gestaltists, TA therapists, person centred practitioners, drama therapists, play therapists, housing association staff teams, forensic staff teams and many others.  If there is one thing that has become apparent, there is more in common, in good therapy, across modalities than might be imagined. Not that individual brands might not have some particular good things to offer, but this is less than it might appear.

I have a long experience as a therapist: individually, in groups , communities and mental health agencies and therefore am well equipped to help colleagues think about their work in its broad context, as well as to negotiate agency settings.

I have a long experience of helping those on their introductory trainings begin to embody the basic values and principles of their new profession.

The explosion of knowledge in the intersection of attachment, neuroscience, psychoanalysis, mindfulness and traumatology  offer much to current practice, and I am particularly interested in helping to integrate these elements into more traditional "talk therapy" modalities, both theoretically and practically.

I offer an initial two way interview to see if our interests might coincide.

Wheelchair user access

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.
