Supervision details

I offer counselling supervision to both qualified and trainee Counsellors. I am open to supervising Counsellors who are practicing with different approaches to counselling. My supervision is informed by a Person-Centred Approach. My aim is to develop a safe and respectful relationships in which supervisees can explore their experiences, needs and challenges as Counsellors. I respect supervisees' abilities to make decisions and develop practice, whilst offering useful supportive challenge. I am very well versed in the integration of theory and practice within the Person-Centred Approach. This includes both classical Rogerian practice and that informed by post-Rogerian developments in theory. Such understanding is derived from my own extensive experience, including 11 years as a counselling tutor. Since this included facilitating Diploma courses with integral counselling placements, I hold much knowledge of the range of services in which Counsellors work, and how to work effectively within their policy and procedural frameworks. My work as a counselling tutor has provided me with much experience of facilitating supervision groups. I have worked as a Counsellor and service co-ordinator in a number of counselling services, including both independent services and those within the IAPT framework (Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies). I have also undertaken the NICE recommended Advanced Certificate in Counselling for Depression, and would be open to supervising Counsellors working with this approach. Combined with my own extensive experience in private practice with individuals, couples and families, I feel the scope of my counselling experience offers much to my supervisees.   My supervision qualification is a BACP endorsed Post-graduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision.  I charge £45 per hour of supervision, so £67.50 per 1.5 hours. I practice from Hebden Therapy Centre, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, and also the Banyan Wellness Center in Burnley, Lancashire.

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.
