Supervision details

I really enjoy giving clinical supervision to both students and qualified practitioners. I have experience in providing CBT supervision as well as supervision from an integrative perspective. I can also work on an individual and/or group basis.

My approach to supervision is to provide a space in which the supervisee feels safe to share their work - the success as well as the struggles. I believe that it is important to be honest about how we are finding the work and experiencing our clients. From this, we can gain insight into what the client might be bringing to the room, as well as what might be our own issues manifesting in the room.

I have found that supervises tend to appreciate a mixture of reflection and direction. I enjoy sharing my knowledge, suggesting particular resources and advising on certain interventions where appropriate. However, I also like to gear supervision to what each supervisee needs or appreciates from supervision. As with therapy, the space is yours to use it how you will!

I do not set a fee for supervision but instead like to negotiate this with each individual depending on how qualified and experienced they are. I am comfortable supervising clinicians from a variety of clinical settings - NHS, private, addictions, neurodiversity, acute, community, eating disorders - and am experienced in holding a certain level of risk along with the supervisee.

HCPC
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

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.
