I have been providing clinical supervision to clinical teams and social services for the past thirty years. This includes management of multi disciplinary mental health teams including a maximum secure psychiatric hospital-the state hospital Carstairs. Most of my work has been in urban environments where there are multiple deprivations and the associated socio economic challenges that people face.

I have been a practice teacher for MA social work students at Bristol and Glasgow university.

I am familiar with comprehensive assessment, dynamic risk assessment, liaison with other agencies, when to refer on and what to do if things become complicated with high risk clients who may be suicidal or present a challenge to your usual contract.

More recently I completed a diploma in mindfulness based supervision which serves to expand the lenses through which we can hold a client and adds a contemplative holding to challenging work. I work with the seven eyed model, and with a body, speech and mind perspective.

I now work as a clinical supervisor for psychotherapists and social care workers in a variety of agencies, for example rape crisis and childhood sexual abuse, fostering and adoption and NHS trusts. I am also a registered training supervisor for Masters degree trainee psychotherapists at the Karuna Institute which was the founding institution offering Buddhist based psychotherapy training in the UK-a sister in statute to Naropa in Boulder, Colorado.

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

The therapy space is on the ground floor. There are two steps up to the front door but I would be very happy to provide extra time to assist with a ramp or of course to provide remote therapy if this would be of interest.
