Perhaps you're looking to change to a new Counselling Supervisor, or you're trying to find your first ever Supervisor. Whatever the situation, meeting a new supervisor can sometimes be nerve-wracking.

You might have such questions as: Will we get on with one another? Might they be overly "critical" of my practice? Am I a "good enough" Counsellor in their eyes?

It's important that you feel comfortable within the supervisory relationship. Not only to share your client work, but anything which may impact upon your practice.

My approach to counselling supervision

I offer a safe, collaborative place to explore your therapeutic work. I don't limit discussions to only client work. Counselling Supervision involves the Counsellor bringing all of themselves to the supervision process, including personal and/or organisational issues.  I believe that Supervision is a place to learn and develop as a practitioner; to gain resources and grow in competence.

My supervisory approach is based on the Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision by Hawkins and Shohet, with sessions tailored to your needs as the supervisee.

My qualifications and experience

I have extensive experience of providing one-to-one and group therapeutic interventions to both adults, and children and young people. I am therefore able to provide supervision to Counsellors working with these client groups.

In 2011 I obtained the Certificate in Counselling Supervision from the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy.

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.
