Supervision details

At the heart of supervision is a professional and ethical commitment to safety and best practice. It provides an appropriate space to explore, discuss, query, reflect upon and learn from clinical work.  I aim to offer a supervision experience that is professional, relational and empowering, with a focus on both the welfare of the client, and the welfare & professional development of the therapist. The supervisory relationship is key to a fulfilling and stimulating supervision experience. At our first meeting I take time to explore your wishes and needs from supervision, and undertake for us regularly to review that we are meeting those needs. This is done in a spirit of mutual collaboration and respect – two professionals working together for the greater good. Regular and on-going supervision is a professional requirement – I strive to offer a balance between the serious, weighty, ethical issues which often confront us, and the lighter, creative and celebratory aspect of supervision, such that it feels less a monthly obligation, and more a rich, collaborative, professional experience to look forward to!  Loraine holds a CPCAB Level 6 Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling Supervision

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.
