Supervision details

I am in training with Relational Change, in 2024, to complete my Certificate in Supervision using their Self Other Situation, relational framework of Supervision which fits neatly with my Gestalt psychotherapy practice. I bring my 8 years of experience working in private practice, alongside my relational, body focussed and creative style, to my supervision practice.

I am offering a couple of low cost spaces for Counsellors or potentially trainees alongside other supervision. Sessions are offered at £40 per hour, on a face to face basis.. I work from The Retreat New Forest, Christchurch, BH23 7EF and sometimes from the Coastal Practice, Southbourne, BH6 4EH. 

Please email or call if you're interested and we can arrange an initial session to check our suitability for working together.

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.

Access available at The Coastal Practice in Southbourne.
