The integrative approach and humanistic principles that inform my work a as  counsellor also underpin my work with supervisees

I have a substantial supervision qualification-Postgraduate Certificate in Supervision -Sheffield Hallam University 2006 and have been in practice as a supervisor since that time.

I have considerable experience of working with counsellors in training  as well as experienced counsellors.My supervisees work in a variety of settings both in the statutory and voluntary sectors. These include, GP surgeries, colleges, South Yorkshire Police Authority and agencies working with addiction, domestic violence and in palliative care.

I see supervision as a reflective space where a  counsellor can bring any aspect of her work both positive and more problematic.I regard the quality of the supervision as reflecting the quality of the relationship between us.I see it as my role to nurture an alliance built on trust and mutual respect.

As I see the counsellors own person as the most important resource in the counselling process, I encourage supervisees  cultivate high levels of self awareness.When the counsellors own feelings are particularly sensitised by client issues it is necessary to look at  the interface where client and counsellor stories might be said to meet.If I think that more work needs to be done by the counsellor on the feelings arising I would recommend personal therapy.

I encourage supervisees to have an awareness of the embodiment of emotion and for them to foster this in their clients. This means that I work to increase awareness of the metaphorical use of language and body language.

I have successfully supported supervisees through the accreditation process and offer sessions dedicated to this aspect of the work where the criteria to be met can be specifically focused on, including case study discussion.

I have consultancy supervision for my work as a supervisor.

My usual fee is £50 per hour.I am happy to meet and consider reduced fees for people in training or in receipt of benefits

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.
