Supervision details

Supervision together means learning what makes you you, nurturing your working style and discussing the quality of the therapeutic relationships you form. 

There will be space to explore what is there for you that is getting in the way of being present to your clients while encouraging you to consider wider systems of oppression and how they affect you, your client and your relationship. 

Humour and laughter are part of the way I work (which is very present in my personal supervision, too).

I have an interest and experience in working in addiction services as a counsellor and supervisor, and also in a prison setting and a therapeutic community for people who hear voices. I offer ad hoc supervision in these areas. 

For more information, and if you are curious to know more, my website thoroughly explains how I work and my fees. Or you can email me and arrange a 30-minute introductory call free of charge.

Trainee counsellors

I do offer concession fees for training counsellors (£50 per hour)

Key details

PVG Scheme

In Scotland, criminal records checks are carried out by Disclosure Scotland. Professionals working with children or vulnerable adults must join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme. You can learn more at mygov.scot , or contact this professional directly.

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.

For outdoor sessions, we will look at places that are accessible to you. My office space will move to Central Chambers, next to Glasgow Central Station in May. It is wheelchair accessible. Please enquire to find out more.
