  • >Supervisor David Ellerby

I have a long experience of mentoring in my previous NHS role and was also a supervisor of pharmacy pre-registration students.

I have experience of supervising clinical/medical staff.

My role as cpd facilitator for the Moray Alliance of Counsellors since 2014 has provided me with a very broad reach of  the counselling profession having provided and sat through over 400 hours of cpd.

As a supervisor, working with counsellors, I bring a wide and deep breadth of experience into the supervision sessions.

For other professions such as medical, nursing, health visitor, social worker, the following might apply.

As a member of the caring professions, your service contract might require you to undergo external supervision during your time of employment. Supervision is often understood to be a management tool to ensure compliance to the required standards pertinent to your role.

However, External Clinical Supervision is about you.

How are you really “being” as you work to optimise your delivery of care? What issues are you facing domestically and professionally that you would rather not discuss with your managers, spouse or partner?

Often an exploration of your whole life & way of being alongside your professional processes can be very insightful, leading to empowerment and levels of fulfilment which have been previously absent.

External Clinical Supervision helps you thrive and not just survive.

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.

Wheelchair user access

I have rooms on the ground floor in Elgin & Buckie but in Elgin there is no ramp into my premises.


I currently have some sessions available.
