I am an experienced supervisor, I began my supervisory work at Barca-Leeds Counselling Services, initially as the counselling coordinator I supervised a team of volunteer counsellors both qualified and trainees, I have also facilitated peer group supervision. As a manager I delivered line management supervision and group supervision. I have been an approved supervisor on the Leeds Beckett counselling course for a number of years and I am an approved supervisor for Leeds University. I have been a group supervisor for Leeds Mind counselling service. I am now a full time private practitioner and trainer. I write and deliver training events through shorelinetraining.net with two counselling colleagues.  

My training as a supervisor is predominantly based on Hawkins and Shohet Seven Eyed Model. I find the Rekational aspect to the approach sits well with my training as a Relational therapist. Working with the interplay of the relationships and their context in the wider systems. This offers insights into the dynamics present within the therapeutic process. I find the model provides a framework to consider practice from numerous perspectives and a system that can assist prepartion for supervision. 

I believe that supervision is key in developing as a professional and improving best practice. As a supervisor I create a space that enables supervisees to explore all aspects of their client work and the impact on self. Supervision can be fun, challenging, supportive, creative, educative, a place to celebrate success. I like to consider client work from numerous modalities. 
Working with counsellors as they develop in their practice is so rewarding, I find it challenging and inspirational. 

I offer both vdeo and telephone supervision, I am able to use a number of video applications.  I have attended training with Dr Kate Anthony (BACP Fellow) in the use of supervision in the digital age. Accessing supervision remotely can be financially beneficial, convenient and increase your choice of supervisor.

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.
