Relationship / Family Psychotherapist and Supervisor

Supervision details

Clinical Supervision Supervision plays an important role in my work both inside and outside of the training room. I have supervised placement trainees and qualified therapists on a one-to-one basis and in groups for many years.

My supervision style is collaborative in nature and as an Integrative Systemic Therapist and Educator, I work with a number of different modes of therapy such as Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Cognitive, and Behavioural. My way of working is to enable therapists to ‘blend together’ a range of theoretical knowledge and skills interventions for the benefit of each client.

Along with ensuring ethical and cohesive practice, an equal focus is placed on the practitioner achieving their own personal & professional development goals within the process as well as helping to build and protect the relationship they have with their clients specifically paying heed to transference and how to work with this within the therapeutic alliance.

My Supervision days and times are mutually agreed upon with each practitioner and the duration of supervision is 90 minutes (1.5hrs) per month according to British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) recommendations and according to the needs of the supervisee.

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.
