I have supervised counsellors for over 20 years and have over that time used several different methods from Hawkins and Shohet, to Page and Wosket etc. I now concentrate on providing existential supervision and it is this modality in which I have most recently been trained at NSPC /Middlesex University at doctoral level.

You can expect supervision which has an open outlook across many forms of counselling / psychotherapy and which seeks to underpin these methodologies with philosophical understanding gained from study of the works of Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger, Levinas, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Frankl, Yalom, May & Husserl etc. My way of providing supervision also incorporates the Structured Existential Analysis model of Emmy van Deurzen and if you wish you could read her books on the subject prior to undertaking supervision with me. I recommend he book "Everyday Mysteries" and also "Paradox & Passion."  I am particularly interested in the phenomenology of emotion and the use of that in counselling and psychotherapy

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.
