Supervision details

Simone Lee, of  24 years experience, is a very well established and published, clinical supervisor who has worked in Primary Care, for many counselling organisations and two London based reputable training institutions where she has run supervision groups continuously for many years. In addition, Simone trains therapists to become supervisors.Having kept a ranging and interesting private therapy practice, Simone's own experience of a broad spectrum of therapy issues really keeps her attitude to therapy work vibrant and alive and she is keenly aware of both professional and personal issues that can arise when we work as therapists. Therefore she aims to support you and encourage you in all your dilemmas and difficult situations be it one to one work, working with an interpreter present and working with couples and groups.She adopts an open flexible attitude to different personal styles of working and encourages you to find a style that suits you and allows you to work effectively with clients. The culture and context of your work are integral factors in the supervision; depending what our work is we might need to consider all or some of these: time limits, space constraints, client group, goals of therapy, funding, service monitoring, assessment methodologies, management directives and so on. Her style of working is professional, supportive, encouraging and thorough.Simone works face to face, skype, online and by phone. If you are starting out as a counsellor or therapist, starting up a private practice or whether you are an experienced supervisor wishing to add dimension to your practice - Simone brings her experience to bear.She offers group and individual clinical and training supervision to counsellors, therapists and supervisors at all levels of experience working in many different contexts. She works with individuals and privately organised groups or pairs, organisations, training institutions, placements, therapy services. She can provide group supervision at one of my practices or at a site of your choosing. The frequency, duration and format of the sessions is something we decide together when we meet.  On-line real-time supervision is a speciality I have recently had a chapter published about Online Supervision in a book edited by Emmy van Deurzen and Sarah Young.While following your preferred theory base and taking into account contextual and ethical issues, my mode of enquiry starts with  phenomenological questions.

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.
