My Clinical Supervision Practice.

I achieved my Diploma in Clinical Supervision in 2011. The supervisee’s I have worked with - trainee, newly-qualified and experienced counsellors and therapists -have been based in schools, colleges, higher education, youth work settings and private practice. I have also supervised practitioners working in the broader helping professions, e.g. social workers, teachers, youth workers, advice workers and a manager of a student welfare department.

As a supervisor I provide what Page and Wosket called the Space (in their Cyclical  Model).

“This is the heart of the supervision process, the part of supervision in which reflection, exploration, recognition, insight and understanding can all occur.” (1994:103).

I trained as an Integrative Supervisor, appreciating the myriad theoretical ways one can work with and help clients to achieve their therapeutic goals. My style is less approach-specific, while keeping faithful to the core conditions of the Person-Centred Approach (PCA) as a foundation.

Below describes my philosophy of practice as a clinical supervisor.

 “The function of the supervisor...is to create the atmosphere that will enable the supervisee to find his or her own style of being a therapist.  By doing so the supervisor also models the growth-promoting environment of congruence, acceptance and empathy.” (Bowen 1986:296)

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.
