I am a qualified supervisor and work on either a one-to-one basis or within a group, depending on preference and availability. 

The supervision I offer is based within a relational framework. I'm qualified in humanistic, existential and CBT approaches; although I am happy to work with counsellors and psychotherapists from any approach, as I see the supervisory relationship as a collaborative relationship grounded in a genuine, professional and ethical space of practice.

I am experienced at working with qualified counsellors and supervisors, and also trainees, as I work within the educational sphere of psychotherapy.

My supervision philosophy:
Being a Dr of Psychotherapy & Philosophy, I draw on a vast knowledge base and experiential life experience to help inform my relational working. My main aim is to establish a trusting relationship that is both challenging and supportive, underpinned with mutual openness, respect and understanding.  I've found that this then enables supervision to be an empowering experience for the counsellor and a place where s/he feels able to explore any areas of concern or difficulty, in the knowledge that the purpose of the work is to assist in counsellor development, focusing on ethical, professional and personal practice.

In simple terms this means helping supervisees to explore general case work or specific ethical issues, with a view to finding a way forward that has both the client and counsellor’s safety and well-being at the heart of the client/counsellor relationship. 

My fees:
one-to-one supervision - £75 for 1.5 hours
group supervision (max 4 participants) - £60 each for 3 hours  
reduced rate for students - £60 for one-to-one, £50 each for group
I am happy to complete any reports required by placements, agencies or training establishments, although this may incur an additional cost which will be agreed in advance.

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.
