Hi there, thank you for clicking on my profile, that could be a positive step in your search for support and development in your professional life.

I know that you will be looking for space to offload, gain support and guidance, but most importantly a safe space to reflect on your practice during your clinical supervision. All competent counsellors continually strive to do the best for their clients and it's important that you will be able to feel that your clients will, in turn, benefit from your supervision. Access to quality supervision is important in ensuring that access to a supervisor who enables counsellors' to feel that there supervisor is caring, trustworthy, knowledgeable and, most of all, helpful in promoting self care for counsellors' in order for them to offer a first class service for their clients. I know this because these aspects are what I look for in my own supervision. 

Just to reassure you I am qualified to an advance level in supervision so, as well as supervising counsellors, I also supervise other clinical supervisors and can facilitate group supervision for organisations etc.

With this in mind my aim is always to influence and help facilitate high standards of practice for supervisees and. I have accrued a wide range of experiences through the counselling work I have carried out, the supervision I have had myself and the teaching I carry out (an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapy Course). My years in psychotherapy and clinical supervision are enhanced by a long history of managing staff, development activities and training (see my counselling profile for more information). My previous experiences and MBA qualification also equip me to offer supervision if you are in another profession such as support worker, manager, befriender, CPN or a student on a counselling course (for which I offer a £10 monthly discount for the first 12 months).

The psychotherapy course I qualified through was an integrative course which gave me a wide view of different models so it doesn't matter what model(s) you practice, as I can present objective view points which are beneficial for supervisees.  

The course I qualified through to become a clinical supervisor is recognised by the British Psychological Society and was delivered by SDS courses. It covers a wide range of supervision theoretical approaches.

Thanks for reading this far. However, I understand you might not be sure about whether to approach me or not. Searching and engaging with a supervisor is a major contributor to how you feel, how you are able to practice as a counsellor and how you can support your clients.

So, why not contact me to arrange a free 20 minute phone consultation to help you decide? There's no obligation so there's nothing to lose!

I charge £50 an hour (and £25 for each half hour after that) on a monthly basis. Any other work, such as group supervision can be delivered at a negotiated rate.

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.
