Supervision details

I trained as an integrative supervisor at Regent College London and believe that good supervision is all about the relationship between supervisor and supervisee. I offer integrative supervision for trainees and qualified counsellors, and professionals working within the caring professions. Supervision is often used to support you with difficulties you may be experiencing with clients, and to help you identify blind spots. However, I think there is so much more to supervision than this. With the right supervisor, you should feel supported and be able to grow both personally and professionally.Fees are £120 per 1.5 hour supervision or £80 for a one hour. Student rates are £90 per 1.5 hour supervision or £60 for one hour Supervisee’s TestimonialMel is always professional and holds ethical boundaries well. Mel offers a safe, warm and genuine environment enabling me to bring all the necessary material I need to our clinical supervision sessions.  As I am a trainee counsellor, Mel is supportive in all aspects of our clinical supervision and shares her counselling knowledge readily to help enhance my theoretical understanding, clinical practise and personal development.Supervisee's TestimonialI qualified with Mel Riley and I got a first for my Degree. Mels a lovely warm genuine supervisor and I would recommend her to anyone working with adults or children.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
