Supervision details

I have been supervising counsellors since 2008 and high intensity CBT therapists since 2009.  I completed a supervision course in bereavement with Cruse in 2006 and a HI CBT supervision course at Teesside University 2010 and I supervise trainees on local HI CBT courses.  My work experience includes working with students in colleges, adults in primary care and private practice using CBT, EMDR and counselling.  I currently work in primary care and private practice. As a supervisor, I am supportive and reassuring to facilitate supervisees reflection on practice.  I abide by the ethical framework of BABCP and BACP.  I am focused on growth and improvement of practice and will suggest reading material/workshops as regular CPD is important for development.  I adapt my supervision to the stage the supervisee is at in their professional development as therapists supervision needs change as they progress.

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.
