I offer supervision in Edinburgh to trainee and experienced counsellors/therapists from a range of modalities and approaches. I have a COSCA validated Diploma in Counselling Supervision from Physis Training.

Options and Cost

1) Individual one to one : 1 hour monthly supervision sessions for £45 (qualified) and £35 (trainees) .

2) Group Supervision (dependent on availability) : a 3 hour session , once a month for a group of three practitioners . Each pays £45 and involves one hour supervision from me and benefits/participates in the group as each other member receives supervision.

 I integrate a number of approaches in my supervision work alongside my core training in Transactional Analysis.

I particularly like one of Keith Tudor's descriptions of supervision:
“Supervision may be viewed as a forum and a relationship in which practitioner and supervisor meet as two colleagues to tell different stories about the client and themselves. In this way, they discover new possibilities (rather than old probabilities) freeing the therapist from the constraints of his or her (and the client’s ) script.” (2002, p.52)

In my own practice, along with a broad range of issues, I have particular client experience of working with men, working with issues of sexuality and identity, and with clients who wish to relate to their faith and/or spirituality. My background also includes group work with young people and experience in the public and voluntary sector. All of this informs my supervision practice. I review my fees annually.

I am available, by arrangement on some weekday evenings and on a Saturday morning.

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.
