  • >Supervisor Sharon Beirne MA, Dip(GPTI), Dip(N.S.), UKCP Reg.

I am a Supervising Member of GPTI and I am recognised as a Training Supervisor of both GPTI and UKCP. The general philosophical principles underlying my approach to supervision are around the safeguarding and well-being of the supervisee, the supervisee's clients and the profession.

Supervision is educational, clinical and about safety and ethics. It can also support advancement of the profession through research and expression of ideas. I encourage inclusion of diversity considerations where appropriate and I respect the supervisee as an experienced person in life and as a professional person bringing their own unique insights. The position that I take is one of respect for the relationship that the supervisee has with their clients. There is also a necessity for me to raise boundary issues from time to time in the service of the above principles underlying my supervisory role.

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.
