Supervision details

Clinical and Case Supervision for both Qualified Counsellors and Counselling Trainees: I am able to offer clinical and case supervision to those working with adults, adolescents, young people and children and provide this service to both fully qualified counsellors* and those currently undergoing counselling training**. I undertake face-to-face sessions along with online, ZOOM and telephone counselling supervision. Training and Qualifications: I am a fully qualified counsellor/psychotherapist of adults, adolescents, young people and children, with over 20 years of clinical experience gained from a variety of settings. In addition, I have completed a Certificate in Clinical and Case Supervision with 'SDS Seminars Ltd' that is Approved by the BPS (British Psychological Society) and which confers eligibility to the BPS’ Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors. Therapeutic Approach: I work in the main from a Psychodynamic perspective although have also been trained in George Kelly's Meta-theory; Personal Construct Psychology, Transactional Analysis (TA), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Person Centred methodologies. Creativity is a natural part of my previous training undertaken as a college lecturer of Craft and Design, an SQA Verifier for Sugarcraft and as a secondary school teacher in both Home Economics and Support for Learning Services. I believe these skill areas help me provide a greater understanding for those practicing or training as Child/Adolescent/Young People psychotherapists and Play/Art Therapists. Evidence Requirements: *Qualified counsellors must be able to provide evidence of current Membership or Accreditation status of a recognised body; e.g. from the BACP or equivalent, and appropriate insurance documentation.  **Trainees must bring evidence of the certificate(s) being undertaken, along with a course outline and a letter of recommendation from the lead course tutor. Documentation must also be supplied from the placement managers, where trainees placements are being undertaken.  

Accessibility and Parking: Face-to-face supervision is carried out in my private premises situated to the south of Edinburgh with free on-street parking available directly outside. Two steps are needed to enter the property, but once inside everything is on one level, making it more accessible to those with mobility difficulties. Fee Structure: Clinical supervision sessions cost £65 per hour (£90 per 1.5 hour session) although a limited number of supported places are available for those currently in training or are unable to pay the full fee. Contact or inquiries can be made by email or telephone on: Mobile: 07971539863 (please leave a message if I am unable to take your call) Email: Ewilsoncounsell@aol.com

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.

Help is offered to those requiring wheelchair mobility. 2 small steps to access garden then one further low step to enter my counselling premises. These options would require the client to evacuate their wheelchair whilst the chair is lifted manually.
