Barbara Hales Counselling Services

Kendal, Cumbria, LA9
01539 728575 01539 728575 Registered / Accredited

I offer a free session to meet and see whether we feel able to work together - or simply meet and network.

I believe supervision should be a balance of refreshing and stimulating experiences in a safe place.
As a qualified and experienced supervisor I aim to provide you with opportunities to:
Develop your self awareness and have space to re-charge batteries;
Have regular support in an atmosphere of integrity and openness;
Identify areas in which to enhance your effectiveness;
Consider ethical issues and boundaries;
Seek help with any decision making necessary (I am available by phone between sessions)

I encourage supervisees to develop as reflective practitioners. As well as careful listening and discussion of theories, I can offer the occasional use of creative methods such as art work, stories and use of a sand tray to explore situations. These methods may help you to deepen your understanding of the therapeutic process and to make use of both thoughts and feelings in your work with your clients. They can also lighten a tense situation.

I charge £60 for 1.5 hours.

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.
