Supervision and consultancy services for mental health and social care professionals in Aberdeen

Our Aberdeen centre offers supervision and consultancy services for mental health and social care professionals.

Who can we support?

We are able to provide support for practitioners who work using a wide range of common therapeutic approaches including Counselling and Psychotherapy (cognitive and humanistic) and Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and in a number of different contexts including: general counselling / adult mental health; couples / relationship counselling; LGBT services; children / young persons; and sexual abuse.

Specialist support

We are also able to offer specialist support in a number of additional therapeutic approaches including: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Schema Therapy, mindfulness and compassion-based therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and systemic approaches.

Types of supervision available

We offer supervision to individuals and groups on a regular, occasional or ad hoc basis.

One-to-one supervision

One-to-one supervision best suits those wishing to support and develop their practice, or those who are working towards accreditation with a relevant professional body. There is time to explore clinical issues and challenges in depth and to develop effective approaches to these.

Group supervision

Group supervision is suited to those who wish to focus on developing their practice in a particular area. It allows experiences to be shared in a supportive and encouraging way and is facilitated by a highly experienced practitioner. Group supervision can also be used in teams to build understanding, improve skills and gain expert input.


Expert consultancy is available for specific issues linked to professional practice in the area of mental health, such as psychometric measures, therapeutic techniques, report writing, etc.

CPD and training

Our CPD and training are available to organisations and groups wishing to develop expertise in certain areas. In addition, we run regular CPD events focusing on contemporary issues in the field of mental health and therapy.
