Supervision details

I have been qualified as a clinical supervisor (Diploma in Clinical Supervision) for fifteen years and currently supervise a range of counsellors and trainee counsellors in the South Devon area.  Supervision provides a container where the supervisee can be supported, validated, inspired and challenged in order to promote growth. It is also an arena providing the teaching of skills and theory, providing models and understanding. A place to check diagnostic “hunches" and formulate treatment planning, strategies and interventions. The supervisee's practice is monitored, thus ensuring the safety of both client and therapist. Finally it is a situation in which the supervisee can ventilate the frustrations of dealing with some of the more difficult clients. When what happens in the room between supervisor and supervisee is openly negotiated, reviewed and available for comment by both parties, their primary work of supervision, the bringing of clients, happens in a much more productive and fulfilling way. A good working relationship has to be created so that it becomes safe to bring any issues. I am an experienced, qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I have an integrative approach to both supervision and therapy. I use Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic, Transpersonal, Humanistic, Person-centred, Gestalt, NLP and Energy-based meridian Psychotherapy (including EMDR) methods. I am trained in, and utilise a number of different models of supervision, including those proposed by, Hawkins and Shohet, Holloway, Carroll, Clarkson, lnskip and Proctor, Heron, Zalcman and others. Supervision has many aspects, central to which is the relationship. Good supervision takes into account all the differing aspects as they become appropriate.

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

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.
