Supervision details

I am a highly qualified counsellor, supervisor and trainer, who is passionate about supporting counsellors, therapists and other professionals.  I offer supervision to experienced practitioners and students, those working within organisations and counsellors in private practice.  I specialise in trauma-informed counselling/supervision, having completed the MSc in Psychological Trauma and having several years’ experience supporting individuals affected by traumatic bereavement and sexual violence.  I also have particular interest and experience in working with bereavement, loss and life changing/limiting illness. As a supervisor, I would work with you to build a collaborative relationship, offering regular opportunities to reflect on and develop your practice in order to work effectively, safely and ethically.  I offer a safe space in which the work can be considered within organisational, professional, social and cultural contexts whilst also being nurturing and supportive. My approach is based on the Seven-eyed Model of Supervision (Hawkins & Shohet, 2012), as well as the normative, formative and restorative purposes of supervision described by Inskipp and Proctor.  These facilitate a collaborative relationship which meets the quality-control, developmental and supportive functions of supervision.  Currently supervision is charged at £45 per hour, though a concessionary fee of £30 may be available to student counsellors. Please feel free to contact me for further information or if you have any questions.

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.
