Supervision details

I am an experienced supervisor and counsellor working in the Brighton and Horsham areas. Over the last 12 years, I have been supervising counsellors who work with various theoretical models, in a variety pf settings - schools, GP surgeries, student counselling services, and voluntary sector charities When working with colleagues in supervision I am able to offer a safe and appropriately challenging space to reflect.   I hope to support counsellors to both enjoy and feel contained by our work together. Fundamentally I believe clinical supervision should be a creative experience for both supervisee and supervisor,  I have extensive experience in working with counsellors with varying levels of experience - from trainee counsellors to therapists who have been in practice for many years.  Having originally qualified as a psychodynamic counsellor, I have gained from further training and working with colleagues using different theoretical models. Consequently I am able to offer both psychodynamic and integrative supervision.  Within supervision I use a relational approach exploring the overlapping relationships between counsellor/client, supervisor/counsellor, and supervisor/client. This approach is very flexible and can bring new understandings of client material and options for the client. I thoroughly enjoy the therapeutic creativity within supervisory relationships and look forward to hearing from you if you would like to meet to discuss your supervision requirements.Lorraine Supervision Cost:  Qualified Counsellors £55.00 Trainee Counsellors £50.00

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

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.
