Supervision details

I completed the PG Diploma in Systemic Teaching, Training and Supervision in 2001 and have taught and taught on Systemic Training courses.   I offer supervision to a variety of practitioners including social workers, systemic psychotherapists, family support workers and Housing Officers.   I am interested in thinking with supervisees about the contexts that influence their practice, how they present themselves to their client group and to reflect on the stories they tell themselves about themselves as practitioners.   We also think about how the client influences them and what stories they bring forward in response to these influences.   My conversational style, while boundaried and ethical, creates an informality that helps supervisees access those less visited "neighbourhoods" of their practice.

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.

Wheelchair access is possible in the Surrey practice
