Supervision details

I have been a qualified counsellor since 2006 and am a registered member of the BACP.  I have a BSc in Therapeutic Counselling, along with a Diploma, Certificate in CBT from  Sheffield University in 2008 and a Certicificate in Person Centred Counselling.I aim to offer a safe, proffessional and growth provoking environment in which supervisees can explore and evaluate their clinical work.  This includes client centred supervision that focuses on the supervisee's work with the client and person centred supervision that allows the supervisee to focus upon their own process whilst working with clients and exploration of any impact this may have on them.I believe that the supervision process should mirror the counselling relationship in the sense of creating the right environment for trust, openess, non judgement, equal and safe, allowing the supervisee to feel they are able to share comfortably anything they want to bring along to supervision and so allow their own growth and experience and gain clarity into their own practice and be responsible for this.

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.
