Hi I'm Andrea Scherzer and I've been providing clinical supervision to experienced counsellors and psychotherapists as well as to those in training since 2005. My approach to clinical supervision is integrative so I aim to help practitioners think about themes raised by their clients through a range of theoretical and clinical approaches including:

  • Psychodynamic ideas which consider links between past, present, and future.

  • Humanistic ideas which link body, mind and spirit.

  • Cognitive-behavioural techniques which help the client connect links between behaviour and thoughts and make appropriate changes to their daily lives.

  • Existential ideas which help people consider how they function in the here and now and deal with anxieties about elements of life over which they have no control.

In addition to supervising therapists in private practice who see a variety of clients, I have also worked more specifically with:

  • Psychologists and nurse practitioners in the NHS and private health care clinics.

  • School counsellors and teachers in pastoral roles.

  • Clinicians working in eating disorders, substance misuse and prison services.

  • Therapists specialising in bereavement and LBGT issues.

I offer individual supervision sessions which last for 60 minutes and usually occur two to four times per month depending on the individual’s caseload. I also offer group supervision for up to five supervisees/members per group and we meet for three hours twice a month. In both cases I start the session with a check-in followed by an in-depth exploration and discussion of client progress, therapeutic themes/dynamics and the impact of client material on the therapist (supervisee).

Where appropriate I may bring in examples from my own practice and/or refer to other published case material to illustrate and expand upon a particular clinical dilemma. In addition I can help with information about running a private practice and give advice on ethical/legal concerns regarding child protection and safeguarding issues.

I have also been providing academic supervision to trainee counsellors and psychotherapists since 2010. People tend to come to me for help with big projects such as Master’s dissertations and final case studies although some come throughout training for extra support with all their assignments. I offer:

  • A confidential, non-pressured space for you to explore and clarify ideas for academic work.

  • Help so you can develop a clear outline and structured plan for your assignment and will ensure you have a good understanding of the theoretical and clinical themes and concepts at the core of your work.

  • Suggestions for additional academic source material.

  • Proof-reading and support with editing your project prior to completion.

 If you think I might be able to help with clinical or academic supervision please feel free to contact me on 07947 004 703.

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.
