I believe that the primary purpose of supervision is to encourage your development as a reflective practitioner, and that this is best achieved within a supportive, egalitarian relationship, built on trust, honesty, openness and mutual respect.

With this in mind, I aim to create a container in which reactions, comments, challenges, feelings and two-way feedback can all be shared.

................................................................................

Contract
Using Peter Hawkins' CLEAR model as a structure, we'll begin each session with a simple five minute contract for what you hope to gain from the day’s work and what - if anything - you want our focus to be on.

Listen
As someone who considers themselves a skilled ‘noticing practitioner’, I place a great deal of importance on listening not just to the words used and their context, but also to my client’s own particular interpretation and meaning of them in order to gain insight into your experience

Explore
Together we'll explore and clarify the issue on hand, and then work to gain insight for both you and your client. I will seek to reveal your potential blindspots and - if helpful - share any parallels I might notice or personal experience I believe might be instructive.

Action
Having explored the issue, we will develop options and discuss a way forward for both you and your client.

Review
We discuss how today's session has been, whether you feel your initial objective has been achieved and what we've agreed on, and then set a date for our next meeting.

Questions for you to ask me during your first session:
- What is your training and experience?
- What are your professional qualifications?
- Is your supervision model compatible with my working model?
- Are you a suitable supervisor for me at this time?
- Can you describe a typical session?
- What will happen if you realise you know one of my clients?
- Do you think we'll be a good match in terms of personalities?

You may also want to talk about or ask questions about aspects of my written contract - eg payment terms, cancellation policy - which I will provide via email before our first meeting.

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.
