Supervision details

An important concept not limited to supervision or counselling or psychotherapy might be how we come to know what we think we know. The term used in psychotherapy for this concept of 'what we think we know' is epistemology.  I have been fortunate and privileged to learn from a broad cross-section of skilled helpers; now with over fifteen years of practical supervision skills and experience gained by looking closely with colleagues and students and counselling trainees and providing case management supervision, I believe I can provide a valuable space and mirror function (or, more accurately, mise-en-scene) within which one can begin to really look closely at one's clinical practice, self-awareness, ethics and professionalism.My approach to any supervisory or mentoring relationship is to do my very best to pass on to others the benefits I have received from the exceptional professionals to whom I have sought and been gifted clinical supervision; it is to those special professionals from whom I have learned, and owe so much to, that have allowed me to developed my approaches, methods and techniques not limited to clinical supervision but toward counselling, psychotherapy and family therapy more generally. I have been fortunate enough to have attended long-term specialised and highly-specialised academic/clinical postgraduate training in Person-centred, Gestalt, Psychodynamics, Psychoanalysis, Analytical Psychology, MBT, CBT, DBT as well as Systemic therapeutic family/group-based approaches (i.e. Structural, Milan, post-Milan, Narrative, Child-focused). I hold a Diploma in Clinical Supervision and a Certificate in Mentoring and Supervision.

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.
