Supervision details

I am an experienced integrative supervisor and was training counsellors for over 30 years. I was the Director of Inter-Psyche ( see ) which is the only humanistic/integrative counselling  training organisation based in the NHS, until January 2017. The feedback from one of my counselling students on my supervision style may be relevant here. She said that, whereas some of her supervisors focussed on the client and what to do next, I focussed on the counsellor and her process in relation to the client. This is not entirely true; I do give some attention to the client, their issues and any wisdom and experience I can offer in this area, but I do also give a lot of importance to the counsellor's process as I find that it's frequently the key to unlocking the client's issues. You will have noticed, if you're sharp-eyed, that my fee for supervision is less than that for therapy (£60 for 60 mins compared with £70 for 50 mins). This is because, at my stage of the profession, I want to give something back; to support the next generation of therapists. If, maybe because you're just starting out, you feel that even this fee is unmanageable, do contact me and we can arrange a reduced fee until your practice builds up (I can support you in this aspect of the work too!). I'm happy to support practitioners at all levels of experience and to give assistance with accreditation applications, case studies etc as required. At the moment, I'm only offering supervision sessions via Zoom. These can be arranged at mutually convenient times during the week. I’m very happy to have a phone conversation, free of charge, to answer any questions you may have about the way I work etc     My fee for supervision is £60 per hour - Counselling/psychotherapy students £40.

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.
