Supervision is a confidential and remarkable process that enhances the practitioner's professional awareness and enables them to work in a more open and reflective manner. My practice as a supervisor embraces the duties, responsibilities and the tasks of supervision with an emphasis on the relationship realms that lie between counsellor and their client,and counsellor and their supervisor. Supervisees are encouraged to explore all that concerns them about their practice whilst further exploring their own unique way of working with their clients. Exploration of dilemmas arising from working with clients on the basis of the Ethical Framework for Good Practice will constitute part of the work, as will issues arising form risk assessment and ethical pracitce.When necessary caseload issues can be looked at so that options can emerge regarding safeguarding of practitioner well being.Training and experience: In 2002 I gained a Diploma in Counsellor Supervision at St.John Univeristy.In 2013 I gained a Certificate in Existential Supervision and Group Work from the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling.I am a BACP accredited supervisor (MBACP (Snr.Accred) supervisor and have been practicing as a supervisor for the past 15 years and offer supervision to a range of supervisees working within diverse counselling environments.

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.
