Supervision details

I am an Accredited BACP Counsellor and UKCP Psychotherapist.  I qualified and have worked as a Counsellor since 2003 and have since qualified as an Accredited UKCP Psychotherapist in 2016.  I have held a Supervision Diploma since 2009 and am now qualified as a UKCP Supervisor following my in-depth training in Psychotherapy, working Relationally and Developmentally.   I have experience supervising Trainee and Qualified Therapists. I offer a secure, safe place for qualified and trainee Counsellors & Psychotherapists to access top quality Supervision.  One of the things which Supervisees have often requested is a place where they can be 'human' and can bring themselves with all the thoughts, feelings and questions which may arise when working with clients.  I endeavor to develop a solid, honest working alliance with Supervisees in order that clients get the best service and Therapists feel safe and effective in their work. Counselling and Psychotherapy rely heavily upon the emotional health and development of the practitioners and it is Supervision which monitors and serves to maintain this. Supervision has several roles: Normative - taking responsibility for standards and ethics and good practice. Formative - sharing responsibility for the development of the worker in skills, knowledge and understanding. Restorative - providing opportunities for discharge and re-charge, support and help in 'finding your feet', as well as celebrating successes and work well done. Perspective - taking an overview of the Supervisee's work. In my experience, all these roles are essential for the Supervisee to be working ethically, mindfully, safely and effectively, for their own well-being as well as that of the client.  As with any psychotherapy and counselling experience, the relationship is of key importance.  The Supervisee and Supervisor are of equal importance in the success and effectiveness of Supervision.  This is a 'collegial' relationship - colleague to colleague, with two or more minds focusing on the issue in order to help the Supervisee work at their best with their clients. Fees: £50 per hour for one to one.      Group (2 - 3 people) supervision also available. I see clients and Supervisees and at my Therapy room at home in Watton near Driffield and Beverley.  I also offer Online Supervision.

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.
