Supervision details

Qualifications and Experience I have worked since 2002 as a supervisor. I have my own counselling and supervision practice which is tailored for individuals, couples, groups and organisations. I completed a PhD in Psychology in 2003 and have many national and international publications. I am a Chartered Psychologist and Accredited Registered Counsellor. I completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision at Derby University in 2011. Supervision is vital to effective and safe counselling practice. It is a process that develops counsellors' skills and abilities and encourages them to reflect on their ways of working with clients in a safe environment. I am committed to providing this supervision to work using: Person Centred, Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioural, and Psychodynamic approaches. I am also able to bring my academic knowledge and research skills into supervisory sessions.   Supervision should be a supportive process for counsellors to encourage awareness of working practices and the effect of these on both clients and counsellors. Supervision provides support, offers stability, reinforces boundaries and ensures individuals are working safely, ethically and to the highest professional standards. As an experienced professional in the field of research ethics, having been a member of the NHS Health Research Authority research ethics committee since 2005, I am very experienced in this field.   I am a qualified experienced supervisor. I offer supportive reflexive supervision.My academic and practice background enables me to offer sound, supportive supervision. I have experience with trainee counsellors through to experienced professionals. Please contact me if you would like to discuss supervision.   I offer all prospective supervisees a free initial introductory session. This provides us both with the opportunity of discussing future arrangements and deciding whether we wish to work 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.

The counselling room is on ground floor and easily accessible. I also offer online and telephone counselling if preferred.
