Supervision details

As part of my independent practice I offer supervision, in Hordle near Lymington to qualified or trainee counsellors.  I also work as a group supervisor for a charitable counselling organisation in Totton, Southampton. If you would like to meet up with me to discuss the possibility of being a supervisee of mine then please get in touch and we can arrange a meeting to talk about your current practice and supervision needs. If you wish you can use this first meeting to present one of your clients to get a feel of how we might work together and ask any questions you need to. This initial meeting is offered without any obligation whatsoever.  I am an experienced integrative therapist and see individual clients for short term counselling of six to twenty four sessions and some long term psychotherapy with clients who may work with me for several years. I also work with young people and couples. I trained and qualified as a counselling supervisor within a Humanistic Integrative context including: Inskipp, Proctor and Page and Woskett Cyclical Model of Supervision. As a supervisor I offer a relationship of consultative support to enable you to feel empowered, confident, safe and supported, which will in turn be reflected within your client work. Our relationship will be based on equality, my knowledge and experience will be imparted in an empathic and congruent manner. I believe very strongly that the relationship must be one in which you are able to be 'real', that you feel safe to be vulnerable and express and explore the more difficult aspects of your work.  My practice is supervised by Ronnie Freeman (Chartered Counselling Psychologist).

Please do not hesitate to phone me to ask any questions or email me and I will get back to you.

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.
