Supervision Relationship

Finding the right Supervisor is as important as finding the right Counsellor in order for you to feel respected and supported to enable you to practise legally, ethically and safety with your clients. I encourage you to decide how you want to use your time in supervision as well as how I can best support you. Clinical supervision requires openness and mutual respect. I endeavour to offer you the right balance of support and challenge for your developmental needs.

Supervision Sessions

During Supervision we will work together to reflect in depth on any issues affecting your practice. We will work within a framework and focus proposed by you for each session and to work to your agenda with what you choose to bring to the session.

We will monitor your self-care and fitness to practise to help you sustain the personal resourcefulness required to undertake counselling work.

I will support and encourage your ongoing training and development needs.

We will adhere to the BACP (2018) Ethical Framework for Counselling Professionals and embrace equality and diversity.

Supervision for Trainee Counsellors

For Trainee Counsellors, I will nurture your transition to working in Professional Practice to help you gain confidence, develop your own ways of working and link theory to practice. I will discuss your requirements for your supervision reports and help you to achieve the required criteria.

My experience as a Counsellor

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and have worked in the Northamptonshire area for over 8 years in Further Education, the public/charitable sector and now in Private Practice. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, abuse, loss, bereavement, low self esteem, bullying, anger, suicidal ideation, autism, personality disorders, attachment, relationship issues, underlying issues of addiction and eating disorders. I work with individuals and couples/groups.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , 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.

There is ample secure level parking on site and a ground floor wheelchair accessible room with a level threshold.
