Supervision details

I work as a supervisor to counsellors and therapists, in support of your work with your clients. My approach to supervision is reflective, encouraging and challenging, and embraces different orientations. Although my training is integrative transpersonal, I also work with students and therapists trained in psychodynamic and person-centred schools. In a relaxed and reflective environment, I encourage you to talk about your work, explore challenges and successes, help you manage boundaries and gain confidence as a therapist. We might reflect on parallel processes, explore transference and counter-transference, work with the bodily sense and use visualisation, drawing or meditation. By looking at the therapeutic relationship through the lens of the supervisory relationship, we can learn more about your clients and how best to serve them. Counsellors and therapists often work in isolation, so supervision is a place where you can openly explore your work and learn how to develop a successful practice as part of a therapeutic community.Please contact me on 07966 699149 or

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
