Supervision details

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Clinical Supervision. For me, supervision is the lynchpin of my own counselling practice.  It provides an insight into the relationship between supervisee and client and, with appropriate challenge, helps recognition of how our own processes can get intertwined with our client work, thus helping us to move forward and improve the quality of our work.  I offer support, encouragement and advice when dealing with difficult situations, ethical dilemmas and practice concerns with an open mind.  I see the supervisee/supervisor relationship as an important part of the work and something to be nurtured and reviewed regularly.  I believe a good relationship is based on trust, honesty and a mutual congruence and is something I would aim to take forward in my work with you. A particular area of interest for me as a practitioner is eating disorders and obesity and I am consistently enhancing my knowledge through training with the National Centre for Eating Disorders as a Master Practitioner in order to work efficiently and safely with this client group.   Fees: - £55 per 1.5 hour session (£40 for counselling students)

DBS check

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.
