Supervision details

Hello, let me introduce you my creative approach to Clinical Supervision:- Consultative Supervision is for professionals whether psychotherapist/counsellor/coach or teacher.   This support uses the services of another qualified professional to review work with clients, their professional development and often personal development as well.  Ongoing professional development being mandatory and key to "growth".Supervision exists for the following reasons* to protect clients, and* to improve the ability of counsellors to provide therapeutic support to their clients within their realm of experience and training.  To identify blind spots in order to highlight areas for further training which in turn supports clients with many and complex personal histories. As a supervisor I work to the UKCP code of practice and incorporate an existential mode of being-with supervisees and clients alike in order to  'co-create therapeutic and developing relationships', key to client and supervisee 'fit'.  My training currently a doctorate with a special interest in male issues, personal therapy and practice continues to grow and evolve, it must, an organic process to spread 'knowledge, subjective experience' all to be shared in order that others may profit as I have in supporting and be-ing supported by others in growing and developing continually also.  There is no meaning for knowledge without sharing it! My counselling/psychotherapy experience is extensive and complex, I bring this experience to my supervision practice.  My clinical practice is and has been supervised on a weekly basis, my supervision practice is supervised along the same lines in order to maintain safe working practice in line with the UKCP requirements (as above) both on a 1 to 1 basis and within group supervision. An experienced qualified integratively/psychodynamically trained counsellor/supervisor. Supervision training with the British Association of Psychotherapists. Experienced supervising work with children and individual adult therapy. Concessions for trainee counsellors and newly qualified counsellors requiring clinical supervision. £70.00

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.

Key details

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.
