Supervision details

I have 20 years experience as a person centred counsellor and cognitive behavioural therapist. I am a qualified Clinical Supervisor and undertook my training at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy. I trained in the 7 eyed model which enables me to work with not only therapists, but anyone involved in the helping/caring profession, whether it be teachers or NHS staff.

I believe that it is fundamental to have a supervisor that you can connect with and therefore, I offer an initial free telephone consultation for counsellors.

I will offer a safe, reflective space for us to explore your work and help you develop as a therapist. 

My fee is £75 per 1.5 hours for qualified counsellors

My fee is £60 per 1.5 hours for trainee counsellors

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.
