I offer professional supervision to Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Trainees via Zoom, Teams or telephone.
Building on 25 years management experience, I have expanded my Counselling Practice into Supervision. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision from University of Gloucestershire, and I adhere to the BACP ethical framework.
I am a highly experienced counsellor, accredited with the BACP. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health, demonstrating the high level of my commitment to Mental Health Support across the spectrum.
I work in an Integrative way, always keeping my original Humanistic training in mind. I have a keen interest in Mindfulness based practice. I offer supervision on an individual or group basis, and I am guided by Inskipp & Proctor’s Normative, Formative Restorative supervision model. This means that I see Supervision as time and space for reflection, thought and, perhaps, gentle, supportive challenge to help you with your clients, as well as your own personal well-being.
I am passionate about us being the best we can be, and feel privileged to be able to be with others on their journey. I have supervision experience from a variety of settings:
- GP Surgery
- Occupational Health Counsellor
- NHS Trusts
- Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP)
- Private Practice
I am a qualified trainer, delivering currently on University programmes, which keeps me up to date with current thinking and challenges. I offer sessions flexibly, with some evening and weekend availability, so that I can support you outside of ‘9 – 5’.

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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
