I am qualified supervisor and have been working as a supervisor for the last 14 years.  I have supervisees who work with a range of clients dealing with issues such as substance abuse, mental health issues, relationship issues and trauma.  These supervisees work in private practice, voluntary organisations and the NHS. I have also supervised many students from the local further education colleges who are doing the Foundation degree in Counselling. I also hold a Supervision Certificate and I am an EMDR Accredited Consultant and work with a wide variety of EMDR therapists.

For me supervision is a working relationship which gives the counsellor the opportunity for in depth reflective practice on their work with clients.   The supervisor is there to facilitate this through the process of empathetic, therapeutic and ethical practice which maximises the competence of the counsellor.   

As a result of this supervisees can become more aware of, and are able to consider their own personal and professional needs and development.

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.
