Supervision details

I am able to provide supervision to both individuals and my practice enables smalls groups of up to four people.  I am trained and work as a Humanistic Counsellor, predominantly as a Person-Centred modality.  I work collaboratively with a supervisee in sessions to help support self-reflective practice, client and self-care. As a Supervisor I ensure I meet regularly with my supervisee.  I do not see myself as the expert in the room but is more a collaborator with the supervisee providing the space to support and challenge you sufficiently to enable you to explore further.  I gain great pleasure from watching my supervisee’s grown as they gain confidence and build on their knowledge and strengths. My role is to provide an environment in which the supervisee can be open to their experiences, identify areas where the supervisee would benefit from further training, recognising potential blind spots and assist the supervisee to rectify these.   Supervision sessions are usually monthly and last for 1.5 hours for 1:1 sessions.  s. Group Supervision usually lasts for 2 hours, with each individual within the group having their own space to explore their individual understanding of themselves.  It also provides a space to share experiences.  I find Group supervision really rewarding.  Please contact me to discuss your Supervision Requirements.

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.

My practice is easily accessible both for wheelchair users and other mobility impairment, which may affect your walking ability.
