Supervision details

I provide clinical supervision for trainees, recently-qualified and experienced practitioners. I am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor.  Hawkins & Shohet's Process Model of Supervision, Proctor's Model of Supervision (Learning, Support and Accountability), along with psychodynamic, transactional analysis, person-centred and solution-focussed modalities of counselling and psychotherapy, inform my work. My working style is one of collaboration, whilst being mindful of differences in responsibilities, role, age, gender etc. in any supervisory relationship. I work in an integrative way which means I use utilise knowledge, theories and experience in an individually-tailored way to help you make sense of and develop your practice. I have particular expertise in areas of difference and diversity (esp gender dysphoria, gender, sexual and relationship diversity), and the impact of early separation on adult relationships. My expectations of you as a potential supervisee are that you will have professional indemnity insurance (either personally or via the organisation you work for) and that you are a member of a professional organisation, such as the BACP, and abide by its code of ethics. I offer an introductory session to discuss your requirements for supervision, to clarify frequency of sessions based on your caseload, experience, accreditation requirements and to give us the opportunity to establish how we might work together. I supervise counsellors at Leicester LGBT Centre, and have several years' experience of providing individual supervision, in addition to personal experiences of receiving individual, peer and group supervision. Therapy Rooms for RentI have versatile ground, first and second floor therapy rooms (accessibility info: door widths 75 and 69 cm) available to use for ad hoc, regular single sessions, regular morning, afternoon or evening blocks or regular days. The rooms are furnished suitable for use with individual clients (adults and young people), couples, family/systemic therapy, group supervision, group training, personal development groups, and mentoring/coaching.

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.
