Supervision details

Are you looking for a BABCP Accredited/qualified CBT or ACT Supervisor?Mental health professionals often look for different things from supervision. You may be an experienced Counsellor looking to develop your skills in CBT / ACT or you may be a Practitioner employed in an organisation and you want to find an external supervisor. As a BABCP Accredited CBT Psychotherapist & Supervisor with a PG Certificate in Supervision, I have been able to supervise both trainees and qualified professionals for many years. I presently supervise students at the University of Birmingham CBT Programme where I am also a Teaching Fellow. I offer ACT supervision to practitioners wishing to develop their ACT skills. I am a peer-reviewed ACT trainer and I've trained over 1000 people in ACT at various levels.Please give me a call on Tel. 0121 523 1108 to discuss any supervisory requirements you haveI understand that it is important to find the right fit with a supervisor and the first meeting is an opportunity to see whether we can work together practically, professionally and personallyWhat kind of Supervision do I offer?Primarily, I believe in building a working alliance that allows practitioners to explore and reflect on a number of key areas including: The Client's Experience The Therapeutic Relationship Knowledge, Theoretical Understanding and Skill Development Professional Issues Therapist / Practitioner Well-being  Ethical Decision Making Organisational Issues                             

It is important to build in regular reviews so that we can reflect on your experiences of supervision. Planning for endings is also helpful so that you can openly discuss when you feel ready to move on and find another supervisor.  Seeking out a new supervisor every few years can help you develop new skills and enhance your practice. I offer both face-to-face and internet-based online supervisory sessions.  Online sessions take place using secure HIPPA compliant video conferencing.If you would like to discuss the possibility of setting up a supervisory arrangement within your organisation, please give me a call on Tel. 0121 523 1108 and I would be happy to talk through your requirements.

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.

We are located on 2nd Floor and there is an elevator. Entrance to the building is at street level. There are no steps to climb.
