Supervision details

I offer supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists and other professionals. As a PTSTA(P) I am fully qualified to supervise TA Psychotherapists. I trained as a Clinical Supervisor at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in 2014, when I already had 10years clinical experience. My supervision draws on over 10,000 hours experience of working with clients in different settings, as well as the practical experience of managing a local counselling centre. 

For me, supervision is a first and foremost a holding and supportive relationship, which provides a context for you to explore and develop your own professional practice and therapeutic relationships in a safe, supportive and creative way. My own approach is Transactional Analysis, but I am trained in supervision across modalities.  I have experience of supervising Independent Domestic Violence Advisers (IDVAs) as well as counsellors and psychotherapists. I was a Tutor for ten years on the Open University/ CPCAB Foundation Degree in Counselling which covers a range of modalities, and see all modalities as having their own strengths and value.

My rate is £60 an hour, or £50 for TA students. I can also offer 3 hour supervision to groups of three for £60 per person, or £50 for TA students. Do give me a call on to discuss further.

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.

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.
