The way I work as a supervisor is to aim to build a trusting relationship where the supervisee can feel free to bring whatever they would like to about their work with clients. It is my hope that supervisees feel safe enough to bring difficulties and challenges they may be experiencing, without fear of judgment or reprimand. I also hope that supervisees will celebrate their successes, be open to challenge and grow both personally and professionally.

I qualified as a supervisor in 2012, having trained with Jenni Biancardi in Newcastle. The main supervision style of this training was Psychodrama and projective approaches. I have supervised counsellors, both individually and in groups, who work with issues of rape and sexual abuse.

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.
