Supervision details

I currently offer supervision to counsellors & psychotherapists who work with children, adolescents and/or adults.

I am also currently working at Brighton University as a student counsellor and within private practice. I consider supervision to be a joint endeavour between the supervisor and supervisee, in attending to the client, the therapist and the wider system in which the work takes place. It is a space where we can revision our thoughts, ideas and attend to our concerns.

I draw upon Shohet and Hawkins 7 eyed model of supervision, developmental, ethical and creative frameworks in my work. I can utilise creative tools in my supervision work such as sand tray, metaphor and imagery.

I have worked as a therapist in the following specialist services and also within private practice. Mankind-  offering therapy to male survivors of sexual abuse utilising trauma frameworks.

West London Action for Children -offering therapy to children, adults and families who have experienced adversity and trauma. I also worked in the school setting offering counselling.In this work I utilised play therapy frameworks and creative therapies. I have also supervised training therapists in this role.

NSPCC - offering therapy to children who had experienced trauma and abuse utilising play therapy frameworks.

Wheelchair user access

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.
