Supervision details

I am an integrative therapist, and have been in continued practise since 2007.  My Clinical Supervision practise is also integrative, and I base the foundations of my practice around Hawkins and Shohet's 7 eyed model and the cyclical model.  I provide supervision online and face to face. My experience of working within organisations and private practice, means I understand the different dynamics that can play a part of your professional career.  I have worked within Trauma and Childhood issues since 2005. You can read more about my therapeutic experience in my counselling profile. 

My vast wealth of experience within mental health, domestic abuse, CSA, rape and sexual violence, means that I can compassionately work with the challenges that you may experience as a counsellor. Together our work will support the continued wellbeing of yourself and your practice, whilst holding at heart the clients needs and your governing bodies ethical framework. All of this ensures we continue to strive for a positive experience of supervision and how it enhances the work we do.

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.
