Supervision details

My wish is that supervisees feel fully supported in their work with clients.  They need to feel able to bring everything to supervision, even if it might seem challenging.  I value us having a professional relationship where we can gain understanding which allows you to develop through the work. British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited qualifications and training - SDS Accreditation in Clinical Supervision Level 3 (Advanced) with Assessed Academic and Clinical Competence. Supervision of supervisors is offered on a 1-2-1 basis or as a group depending upon what is required by you Supervision is about you.  During your client work there will often be things about yourself that arise.  Supervision will allow you to work through these and be able to understand them and so allow you to use this understanding as part of your work. We can use a solution focussed supervision model, this allows us to really understand what works for you.  Together we discuss positive outcomes and look at how you have worked towards them. Sometimes we might work with an integrative approach, Lewin-Kolb experiential learning circle; Experience - Reflection/ Observation - Develop a strategy - Active experimentation.    I work from home in a garden room on the bank of the river Thames Everyones circumstances are  different so charges depend on individuals circumstances.

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.

The grounds are accessible by wheelchair but there are two steps to be overcome getting into the room. Assistance is offered for this. If you were unable to bring your own wheelchair there is a mobility scooter available to use
