I hold a BA in Humanistic Counselling, a Certificate in Supervision, I have extensive experience of supervising groups and individuals in a variety of settings and I have taught Gestalt therapy to diploma level. My style of supervision is based on the Seven-Eyed Supervision Model of Hawkins & Shohet and incorporates Michael Carroll's 'Tasks of Supervision' Model. In my view, supervision is about you first and foremost, is essential to personal and professional development, and is a key factor in avoiding burnout. I provide a safe, supportive environment where you can explore your client work using a range of theoretical models, including Gestalt, Existential, Person-Centred and Somatic. My counselling practice, supervision practice, teaching practice, and personal philosophy of counselling are based in the Humanistic paradigm. My supervision work covers individual and group supervision. The BACP requires accredited counsellors to have a minimum of 1.5 hours one-to-one supervision per month, and this requirement is often stipulated by counselling course providers too. I therefore offer both 60 and 90 minute supervision sessions. My fee for supervision is £55 per 60 minute session or £80 per 90 minute session. I offer a limited number of reduced-rate supervision places to trainee therapists who have not yet gained their diploma.

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.
