I understand supervision as a space of mutual trust and respect between supervisor and supervisee for the purpose of safeguarding the welfare of the client and promoting supervisees’ professional development (by taking into consideration my supervisees’ developmental and individual needs and using terminology authentic to supervisees' theoretical orientation). 

My aim as a supervisor is to create safe, empathetic and non-judgemental environment to enable you to reflect on your clinical practice, to deal with ethical dilemmas in a professional and ethical way, to gain insights and a better understanding of your clients and client-counsellor relationship dynamics in order to maximise the effectiveness of the therapy you are providing to your clients and help you to develop, grow and fulfil your potential as a practitioner. 

In terms of techniques, I use dialogue, recognising of “parallel process” and incorporate creative elements, e.g. associations, metaphors, playing with words, drawing, themes from fairy tales and myths, archetypes, visualisation etc.

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.
