I have an MSc in Counselling (Supervision and Training) and am a Senior Accredited Supervisor (BACP).

My belief is that supervision and consultancy can best be undertaken within a safe and trusting relationship when supervisees can permit themselves to explore their anxieties, vulnerabilities, mistakes, (as well as celebrate their successes!); issues raised by transference and counter-transference; and ethical dilemmas, in order to develop their skills, potential and understanding in the work they undertake. I believe this will make them more effective and help them remain psychologically healthy.

Examples of arenas in which I have provided supervision:

Clinical supervision for:

  • NHS team working with disabled clients;
  • Primary support teams working with children with emotional and behavioural disorders
  • Counsellors working in agencies for clients who have been sexually abused;
  • London Fire Brigade counsellor;
  • Counsellor in NHS occupational health department;
  • Counsellors in primary care
  • Therapists in private practice

I have provided consultancy for:

Individuals and groups working in Education, Probation, the NHS, and other statutory and voluntary organisations.

I have experienced working in this capacity with:

  • Manager of community drugs project;
  • Director of a Christian counselling agency;
  • Manager of an abuse counselling agency;
  • Trainer, consultant and coach to national and international organisations.
  • Probation service victim liaison team.

Cost: The cost of supervision for individuals is £90 per hour. Consultancy work ranges between ££100 per hour.

Key details

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.

With prior notice I can arrange to provide disabled access.
