I provide supervision sessions to trainee Counselling Psychologists and counsellors from other disciplines, together with those seeking supervision post-qualification.  I have particular experience in working with those trainees on the DPsych. Counselling Psychology programme and I am aware of the needs and requirements of the course.

My approach to supervision is: to ensure that the supervisee receives support in terms of reflecting and evaluating their skills and knowledge to aid learning; help to develop their professional practice to the required standards; and includes restorative functions in terms of the emotional impact of working as a therapist (Proctor's 3 Function Interactive Model).  Each supervisee is unique and I therefore incorporate the use of Stoltenberg & Delworth's Integrated Developmental Model to ensure that the supervisee develops and advances from their current stage, as their confidence and skills grow. 

Each supervisee therefore receives supervision that is tailored to their needs.  Collaboration on this is essential. I therefore encourage my supervisees to engage with me throughout this process to ensure that their supervision sessions are of benefit to their practice and development.

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.
