I am an Integrative Counsellor and Supervisor. My core counselling training integrated psychodynamic, person centered and cognitive behavioural approaches, and have several years experience working as a counsellor online (via video, live webchat and email), and over the telephone. In addition to this, I spent three years working as a counsellor privately. I spent 3 years working specifically with addiction. I also work as a  tutor on London counselling courses.

My approach to supervision is 

Integrative: I see the integrative model both as a therapy approach, and as a philosophy. It is an appropriate approach for the endless diversity of the human condition: no two clients will ever be the same, and so a way of working is needed that allows for flexible thinking and creativity. This philosophy translates well to supervision since an intersubjective perspective allows me to comfortably supervise a wide variety of counsellor approaches.

Supportive: In the caring professions, emotional fatigue and burn-out can be common. I see it as an important part of my role as a supervisor to offer much needed emotional support, and to help the supervisee to keep self care as a priority.

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.
