Supervision details

I am an experienced supervisor, I began my supervisory work at Barca-Leeds Counselling Services, initially as the counselling coordinator I supervised a team of volunteer counsellors both qualified and trainees, I have also facilitated peer group supervision. As a manager I delivered line management supervision and group supervision. I have been an approved supervisor on the Leeds Beckett counselling course for a number of years and I am an approved supervisor for Leeds University. I have been a group supervisor for Leeds Mind counselling service. I am now a full time private practitioner and trainer. I write and deliver training events through shorelinetraining.net with two counselling colleagues.   My training as a supervisor is predominantly based on Hawkins and Shohet Seven Eyed Model. I find the Relational aspect to the approach sits well with my training as a Relational therapist. Working with the interplay of the relationships and their context in the wider systems. This offers insights into the dynamics present within the therapeutic process. I find the model provides a framework to consider practice from numerous perspectives and a system that can assist preparation for supervision.  I believe that supervision is key in developing as a professional and improving best practice. As a supervisor I create a space that enables supervisees to explore all aspects of their client work and the impact on self. Supervision can be fun, challenging, supportive, creative, educative, a place to celebrate success. I like to consider client work from numerous modalities. Working with counsellors as they develop in their practice is so rewarding, I find it challenging and inspirational.  I offer both video and telephone supervision, I am able to use a number of video applications.  I have attended training with Dr Kate Anthony (BACP Fellow) in the use of supervision in the digital age. Accessing supervision remotely can be financially beneficial, convenient and increase your choice of supervisor. 

BACP
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.
