"It seems that whatever approach or method is used, in the end it is the quality of the relationship between supervisor and counsellor that determines whether supervision is effective or not . . . There needs to be a degree of warmth, trust, genuineness and respect between them in order to create a safe enough environment for supervision to take place."
(Hunt 1998)

All my supervisors and supervisees have taught me one essential thing: that a commitment to authenticity is vital. Supervision can be rich and enjoyable at the same time as being challenging; it’s in those moments of discomfort that we discover most about the relationship between the client and ourselves. 

I don't counsel your clients by proxy: my focus is on how you feel and what you might be experiencing when you're with individual clients.

Feeling secure enough to explore the difficult stuff - in the relationship between client and supervisee and in the relationship between you and me - requires confidence and respect from both of us.  Annual reviews are part of my commitment to the Ethical Framework.

I offer reduced fees for students. Groups are limited to 3 supervisees.

Suggested costs
One to one supervision for students - £40 for 1 hour.
                                                       £50 for 1 ½ hours.

Group supervision - £30 per person for 2 hours total (40 mins each. Group meets fortnightly.)

One to one supervision for qualified counsellors - £60 for 1 hour.
                                                                       £70 for 1 ½ hours.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Online working, either video conferencing or by phone, is straightforward. During the C19 lockdown all therapy work is happening via Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom or phone.


For clients that want to begin the day feeling grounded I start work at 7am. Some Saturday morning sessions are currently available.
