Relational Supervision
Providing a holding space during uncertain times
The last couple of years has seen humanity facing challenges on a dramatic scale: mass human displacement, environmental crisis, the unveiling of a sexual abuse endemic, threats to democracy and the latest - the coronavirus pandemic. And during these fast-changing times, how do you respond to your client’s complex needs, provide emotional containment without denying your own needs and sacrificing your own wellbeing? Together we can form an alliance, build trust, develop a deeply relational connection and tools to support your practice.

Crucially, the relational approach to supervision allows us to be subjective and use subjective experiences in the service of your client work - exploring what might be of benefit to the therapeutic relationship. This entails a number of interconnected parts such as intentions (ethical values and principles), presence (states of fluidity or rupture), attunement (compassion, respect, interdependence), resonance (movement between mutuality and separateness) and reciprocity (continued bridge building when shame is triggered).

Session Fee:  £75 per 1 1/2 hrs

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.

Wheelchair user access

Due to the coronavirus (covid-19) I offer a variety of remote counselling options including phone, Skype and Zoom.
