Supervision details

I offer supervision to counsellors, either individually or in groups. An experienced and fully accredited practitioner with over fifteen years and thousands of hours of experience of client work with an Integrative/Psychodynamic model. I hold a Certificate in Psychodynamic Supervision but would describe my way of working as an integrative/relational approach.  I currently see supervisees in my private practice. If you would like to meet up with me to discuss the possibility of being a supervisee, then please get in touch and we can arrange a free meeting to talk about your current practice and supervision needs. If you wish you use this first meeting to present one of your clients to get a feel of how we might work together you can do and can ask any questions you need to. This initial meeting is completely free of charge and is offered without any obligation whatsoever. I am sure you will gain some understanding of the way I work as a therapist from my website, I am an experienced therapist and see individual clients for short term counselling of six to twenty four sessions, work with couples and also do long term psychotherapy with clients who may work with me for several years. I do work extensively with survivors of childhood abuse, in particular sexual abuse if this an area you are already working with or feel you need specific help with. As a supervisor I offer a relationship of consultative support to enable you to feel empowered, confident, safe and supported, which will in turn be reflected within your client work. Our relationship will be based on equality, my knowledge and experience will be imparted in an empathic and congruent manner. I believe very strongly that the relationship must be one in which you are able to be 'real', that you feel safe to be vulnerable and express and explore the more difficult aspects of your work.  Please do not hesitate to phone me to ask any questions or email me and I will get back to you. I do offer a free initial meeting so we can meet face to face at my office in New Milton

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.
