  • >Supervisor Matthew Haggis MBACP (Accred. Reg.)

Supervision offers an opportunity for us to be curious about our own practice, to contract with a supportive practitioner to explore the thoughts, feelings and ethics of our work in a confidential and theoretically congruent space. We do this in order to do our best for our clients, and to grow and develop as counsellors.

I am currently completing the BACP curriculum Diploma in Clinical Supervision at the Northern Guild for Psychotherapy and Counselling in Newcastle, having been awarded the Certificate in 2019. I have also trained with Robin Shohet, exploring the Supervision Relationship.

I was originally trained in the psychodynamic/person-centred Dialogue at the University of Edinburgh, and have also completed the Foundation year of the TA Diploma, and an MSc in Counselling & Psychotherapy with Persona/Stirling University (person centred, with a focus on Mindfulness and Depression).  I now work in an integrative way with an emphasis on core existential ways of being.

As a supervisor, I believe it is presence and ‘being with’ that forms the foundation on which we stand, in order to facilitate safe, ethical practice for the benefit of clients.

Supervision is £50 per 60 minute hour.

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.
