Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS6 1NU

My training and approach as a counsellor is relational, and I believe that quality of relationship and awareness of interpersonal patterns enacted within the counselling relationship is fundamental regardless of the specific therapeutic model. In supervision as in counselling I would aim to offer a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space for exploration, facilitating the supervisee to develop the personal style and approach which is most effective for them. At times this may mean exploring wider issues around the supervisee's personal and professional development, being open to new models, and reflecting on the interpersonal processes occurring between us.

As a counsellor I believe it is important to be aware of wider social relations impacting on clients' inner world and material circumstances - including the power relations which arise when someone seeks professional help, and the more limited choices available to those on lower incomes. Having worked for sixteen years in a variety of voluntary-sector agencies, I have worked with a very wide range of clients, some with severe and enduring mental health problems, and many on low incomes. As a supervisor, I am keen to support counsellors who, like myself, want to offer an affordable service to clients, or who find the costs of establishing themselves as counsellors to be prohibitive. I am therefore open to negotiating supervision fees according to the supervisee's circumstances - normally within the range of £20-£40ph at present.

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.

Wheelchair user access
