Supervision details

I offer a flexible and collaborative approach to qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who are seeking supervision. It is a prerequisite that I focus my attention on the wellbeing of my supervisee’s reducing the risk of unethical practice and therapist burnout. My supervisee’s can expect the same ethical and counselling values that I provide to my own clients. This will allow them to explore their thoughts, feelings and needs around the caseload of their client’s issues and challenges. My specialities are working with clients suffering from Shame, Trauma, Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity. I also offer Supervision for therapist's working adults who are currently being investigated for non contact or contact sexual offences.

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.
