I am a qualified counselling supervisor with over ten years' experience providing supervision to both trainee and experienced counsellors, and counselling trainers. The supervision I offer helps counsellors and trainers develop their clinical practice, explore ethical issues and enhance their self-care. 

What is supervision?

The emphasis is on supporting you and your counselling work. It is an opportunity to reflect on your working process and therapeutic relationships, address any concerns you have and identify training needs. 

I have my own monthly supervision to support my practice. 

How do I work?

Supervision is a boundaried, confidential relationship, but there is no set agenda. I work with what you bring to the sessions. I look out for parallel processes and transference issues, and check these with you as they emerge. I also encourage mutual reviews of our developing relationship.

For counselling trainers, I can offer many years of experience running therapy training programmes in FE, HE and private settings. The emphasis will be on supporting your training delivery to student groups within an organisational setting.   

How much supervision is required?

For trainees, we'll be guided by your course requirements. For experienced practitioners, it will depend on the number of clients you're seeing and your needs. I use the standard minimum of one and a half hours per month as a guide.

Key details

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.
