  • >Supervisor Dr Sara Betteridge - Psychologist & Family Therapist

As a practising Counselling Psychologist I have many years of experience clinically supervising assistant, trainee & qualified Psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists, couples and family therapists and a wide range of other multidisciplinary professions such as mental health nurses, social workers and occupational therapists. I have a particular interest in supervising groups or teams and this has ranged from teams of counsellors, volunteer mental health workers, NHS mental health teams and charities. I also offer reflective practice spaces for trainee psychologists as part of their university requirements in post doctoral training courses. 

The main model I use when supervising is the Open Dialogue model. This provides a non-hierarchical structure in which the supervisor creates a safe space for the supervise to explore the client work and their 'self' in relation to the work. It is an open, transparent and genuine way of working in which supervisees report feeling heard and validated which then gives them the confidence to grow and develop.

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.
