I deliver two types of supervision: supervision to psychological therapists and supervision to practitioners/tutors of mindfulness. For details of mindfulness supervision please go to http://mindfulnessteachersuk.org.uk/ for a comprehensive account. In the context of therapy, I have a background in delivering clinical supervision to individuals and groups; I was trained as a supervisor within Relate and delivered supervision there for 10 years to therapists who worked in mental health settings, schools, Sure Starts, domestic violence contexts with individuals, couples, young people and families. My principle modalities therapeutically are psychodynamic and systemic, though originally I was trained in the Person Centres Approach. I bring an integrated approach to my work as a supervisor, and would say that my overall approach fits with the The Seven Eyed Supervision Model constructed by Shohet and Hawkins, see http://www.livingtherapy.co.uk/seven-eyed-model I see supervision as a relationship which supports fellow professionals with the multiple ethical and moral challenges the profession presents us with, being available both face to face and by telephone when necessary. This, then, can carefully explore the therapeutic alliance whilst sharing theoretical hypotheses, issues of safety and risk, and also to promote both client well-being and counsellor development and awareness. I welcome any individual to contact me if you are looking for a Supervisor and offer an initial meeting free of charge to assist you in choosing an important individual to support your clinical work and development. Supervision times are flexible based on practitioner needs in differing workplace settings. Fees: Qualified therapists £50 per hour
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
