I am pleased to be able to offer clinical supervision to counselling practitioners. Whether you are a trainee counsellor, newly qualified or a more experienced practitioner, I can provide an appropriate supervision service for you. I am also experienced in offering non clinical supervisory support to other helping professionals such as Head teachers, Military Welfare Officers, support workers and police staff/officers.

I am truly passionate about the Person-Centred way of working with clients and this is extended to my supervisory work with supervisees. 

During supervision I will offer you the opportunity to explore personal and professional issues that will help you to develop your awareness and facilitate your work with clients. By offering the core conditions within the supervisory relationship, I aim to provide a secure space where you can freely explore yourself, your way of working as a counsellor, the highs and lows of your therapeutic work, the difficulties and the wondrous moments you share with your clients.

It is important that we are able to develop a trusting and secure supervisory relationship so that you get the very best from our sessions and this benefit can then filter through to your clients... be receptive to feedback, accept acknowledgements, be prepared for challenge, enjoy the journey, question yourself, and be yourself. I learn just as much from you so I'll be doing the same!

As well as using a reflective and educational approach I will also encourage your own exploration of issues raised, so that you are able to develop your own 'internal supervisor' to help you to work more effectively.

Please note that as part of our professional work together I would expect supervisees to be a member of a professional body such as the BACP and to work within their ethical framework for good practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy.

Fees for individual supervision:

1 hour - £45

1.5 hours - £67.50

2 hours - £85

If you would like to book an initial session to discuss your supervision needs and to see if we both feel that we can develop a good working alliance please contact us via the contact page or by telephone (01325) 304100.

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.

We now have access to a ground floor counselling room which is accessible for wheelchair users. I have training in telephone and online counselling for those unable to attend in person or for times of lockdown.
