My name is Judith and I have been working as a Counsellor for eighteen years and as a Supervisor for fifteen years.  I became an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) in 2004 and I am a Registered Member of BACP.  I have Indemnity Insurance and have regular Casework Supervision.

I am passionate about the work that I do and I find working with supervisee's refreshing and it challenges my own practice, encouraging me to look at what I do, why I do it and to be able to relate the theory to practice.  I give a lot of myself in my work and I feel like I get a lot back.

I prefer to get a sense of what supervisee's need from their supervision in order to best facilitate their learning and development rather than to have a set way of working.

I offer a high level of support but I will also challenge things that I am unsure of.  I prefer in depth work within a caseload rather than whistle stop tours as I love to get my sleeves rolled up.  I do provide a cup of tea or coffee at the beginning of each session and I have a good sense of humour but I also work very hard and expect the same from supervisees.

plus I am very open to working with tapes, notes, general senses or expressive ways of working.  I prefer people to be organised and prepared for supervision but I also understand that sometimes, it is necessary to just “splurge”.  I expect good time boundaries but I have been known to have an occasional “saggy boundary”.  

I am not sure I can say much more in answer to this because supervision with each person will be different and what we make it.  I suppose I expect honesty, respect and courage and if I get something wrong then I expect you to tell me.  I am not good at pussy footing!

I have worked in many settings, GP surgeries, private practice and colleges but the bulk of my experience has been in a Social Care setting.  I facilitated Person Centred Courses some years ago and I was a volunteer for an International Aid Agency (it has to be said, that I was the only member of the team not to be sent anywhere!!)

I have had experience of working with trainee, volunteer and employed counsellors for many years as a supervisor, mentor and manager (not all at the same time).  The bulk of my client work has been with adults and young people who have experienced domestic violence, loss, bereavement, low self-esteem, abuse, disaffection and trauma.

Accessibility

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.
