  • >Supervisor Jan Russell, MNCS (Acc), Dip. Counselling; Supervisor

I am a Person-Centred supervisor and have supervised both qualified counsellors and trainees on placement since 2003.  Many counsellors are training on Integrative courses these days and I am confident in working in other models.  However, I find holding on to my person-centred core philosophy creates a sound working base.

I work as a supervisor in both my private practice and as part of my agency work, and describe my style as collegiate, recognising that we both can learn from the experience.

My supervision with trainee placement counsellors includes completing reports to the Training organisation concerned, as part of the qualifying requirement.  I find it extremely rewarding to work alongside a trainee at the beginning of their counselling career and play a part in their professional development.  They bring so much enthusiasm and up to date learning to their supervision sessions.

I also do regular group supervisions with trainees and qualified counsellors, who value the chance to share aspects of their client work, meet other counsellors and gain from each others' insights.

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.

A slim line wheelchair could get through my normal width door. There is a ramp to the front door of my bungalow.
