"Amazing things can happen when we listen to one another" Hunt (1986) About me as a supervisor.My supervision practice is based on the seven eyed model of supervision by R Shohet and P Hawkins see "Supervision in the Helping Professions" which gives both the supervisor and counsellor a map to work from within each supervision session.I am warmly relational and when working together I would encourage you to bring the client into focus in the room as a unique human being, looking at the work from their perspective through their own lens. My aim would be not to have a fixed idea of how the counselling / psychotherapy work should proceed but rather listen to you the counsellor and how you approach the work, taking account of the context in which the work is taking place. I would also hold an awareness of how parallel processing maybe presenting itself in the room.The type of supervisor relationship I would try and build with you the counsellor would be a relationship of mutual trust and understanding, empathy and congruence taking account of what is happening in the here and now and in the there and then. My aim would be to provide a safe, reflective space in which supervision takes place so that the counsellor feels held and has what they need in order to do the work with the client. In supervision as in counselling I believe it is the relationship that determines whether counselling or supervision is successful.I will also give support and guidance based on my own life experience and my work as an accredited counsellor with BACP. I am not adverse to working in a creative way if this helps the supervision process. In the past I have been a Group and Individual supervisor for Cruse and have supervised counsellors who are training on Diploma courses / Foundation degree courses as well as qualified counsellors in private practice. Qualifications. Cruse Bereavement Care certificate in supervision 2014 Ascentis level 3 certificate in supervision 2015 Advanced diploma in Relational Supervision 2019 Fees. From 1.3.19 I charge £40.00 for an hour session, £50.00 for one and half hours. I have a reduced rate for students - please enquire. I do not charge for references or reports.

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.
