Supervision facilitates the supervisee’s (The Counsellor/Therapist’s) own explorations and development of their way of practice through a relational way of working. I offer a conceptual model of supervision which provides a container where the supervisee can be supported, validated, inspired and challenged in order to promote growth. It is also an arena providing the teaching of skills and theory, providing models and understanding. A place to reflect and formulate treatment planning, strategies and interventions. As an experienced integrative practitioner, CBT Practitioner and Therapeutic Group Facilitator, I can work with a variety of modalities. Ring me to arrange a free consultation so that we can have a chat about whether you feel my way of working is compatible with what you need. I aim to be supportive whilst encouraging supervisees to examine their work, think for themselves and develop awareness of and trust in their own experiencing. In order to do this supervisees must feel comfortable enough to be self reflective and to explore their client work openly. This is why fostering a supportive professional relationship is key to my work and a necessary factor to developing their professional and therapeutic competency. Individual Counsellors rate is £60 for a 90 minute session. Group Supervision is available upon request.
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 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).
