I am trained in supervision and systemic supervision.

It is important to note that we often take off the therapy hat for Domains of Action, Production and Explanation:  and shifting between these aesthetically is often key.

A useful model to ensure high-quality relational reflexivity I use is Barry Masons approach method technique - to ensure epistemological theoretical rigor especially when integrating ideas from different ontological domains. I take a narrative therapy ethos towards most supervisions: valuing collaborative sense-making, hearing non-problem stories of clients, and your skills (not just problem areas of stuckness). I also listen out for the unspoken and attend to transference in the therapy space which can be very useful.

In supervision I use a range of tools including role play, 'which GRACIES grab you', sculpting exercises and Statement of Position Maps 1 and 2.  I also draw positioning compasses with supervisees to remember how to 'go on' in sessions - drawing on the work of Karen Partridge.

It is often useful to formulate together from 2 different approaches and I encourage this where there is stuckness.

For supervision on work on the level of teams/consultation, I am experienced in the use of Collaborative Helping Maps to shift individualism towards collective action. I bring with me visual aids to help with collaborative formulation and sense-making. 

I hold space to helps supervisee's shift from attending only to their own sense-making to the sense-making their client is making: which can be powerful.

Supervision in this way will help you to grow your relational reflexivity skills.

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.
