Supervision details

I am a clinical supervisor trained to a BA level for both 1 to 1 and group. In addition, I am an EMDR consultant Supervisor for both CYP and adults awaiting confirmation of accreditation in January 2024. I particularly have a wide knowledge and understanding around Children and young people, particularly around Domestic and Sexual Violence. I have been supervising over the past 18 years for a variety of presenting client issues. I believe that my supervision approach enables supervises to explore their client process and how this impacts on their day to day work. Enabling them to feel confident to practice and notice any difficulties in the client's work with deep reflection. I am also registered with the BACP and take monthly clinical supervision myself and have on occasion reviewed academic papers for the BACP, as well as present at the children and young persons conference for the BACP.

I am the founder of the largest therapeutic charity in Cornwall for domestic, sexual violence and trauma which supports all ages, genders and orientations. I have participated in the publishing of academic papers and recently sighted on Arianne Struik's book "Don't Let Sleeping Dogs Lie."

I am qualified to HE Level 6 Certificate in Person-centred Supervision (Individual and Group). My fees are £70 per 60 minute session for general Clinical supervision. EMDR Consultancy fees are 1 hour group session at £60 per supervisee, Individual is £100 for 60 min / £120 for 90 min. Any reports or accreditation processes are charged in addition.

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.
