Supervision details

A qualified supervisor based in Cambridge. I offer supervision to individuals or small groups. I work in a supportive collaborative and encouraging way and at a level to suit your developmental stage. My training was  with with CST (Cambridge Supervision Training), a highly regarded training organisation. I hold Certificate in Supervision (ASIIP 2011) and Diploma (ASIIP 2012) I also have a Diploma in Online supervision from OCTS and am a senior professional member of ACTO

Having had experience of counselling in a number of different organisations and settings (including NHS, young persons charity, cruse, private practice and university counselling service, petals) I can draw on this breadth of experience to work  in an integrative way  to find a way that works best for you. 

As a trained and qualified supervisor I can offer supervision to other counsellors, trainees therapists, teachers or healthcare or any professionals working in a caring or supportive role either as individuals or small groups.

Supervision is a space for you to reflect on your work to learn and grow and to feel supported. It is a chance for you to step outside your work and talk about areas you are not able to discuss with others due to confidentiality. There are often patterns and themes in your work which may become apparent. It can be interesting to see how these relate to your own personal circumstances.It provides you with a space to share all aspects of your work with clients or people you are supporting as well as considering any ethical or boundary or organisational issues.I am a non judgemental encouraging supervisor and hope our work together will enable you to feel supported and be able to grow. Most importantly it is part of your self care. I offer face to face supervision as well as online supervision. This is both supervision online and supervision for online work. I am qualified as both a face to face and an online supervisor and am happy to offer supervision for blended work, and where appropriate blended supervision.

I currently work with a range of levels of experience from trainees to experienced counsellors and a variety of orientations. As well as working with private supervisees I currently work as a supervisor for Centre 33 and offer support for those in a caring role who are not counsellors from other professions. Previously been a supervisor with Cruse and STARS and for trainees on the Adlerian counselling diploma. I have both a Certificate and Diploma in Supervision (Adlerian/Integrative) awarded by Cambridge Supervision Training and Accredited by ASIIP and a Diploma in online counselling supervision awarded by OCST and recognised by ACTO.

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.
