COUNSELLING SUPERVISION
I offer supervision to counsellors and practitioners in related professions (see below). As a counsellor myself, practising using psychodynamic and integrative approaches, I bring first hand knowledge of the counsellor-client relationship and can help supervisees understand what might be going on in their practice from a counsellor’s perspective. The psychodynamic approach especially values what might be brought unconsciously into the supervisory relationship from the client relationship and how this manifests in emotions and bodily sensations, leading to some insight into what these might be telling us.

SUPERVISION IN THE HELPING PROFESSIONS
I offer supervision to counsellors, coaches, mentors, mediators and others whose work brings them into direct engagement with clients or service users. My approach is set out by Hawkins and Shohet (2004) “Supervision in the Helping Professions”. Also known as the “Seven Eyed Model”, it focuses not only on the supervisee-client relationship but also on the supervisor-supervisee relationship as a parallel process for that work. We look at interventions the supervisee might have made in their work, interpersonal dynamics and what characterises a working relationship, the emotional content of the work and how that affects the supervisee, and what might be around outside of the working relationship that  is nevertheless present in the practice.

I trained with CSTD London (Shohet) in four modules (January-November 2019).

Key details

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.

Acessible at 61a Mayfield Road (although this is down a hill). At 23 Eyre Place there is a door step to negotiate, which I can assist with.
