Supervision details

I am a fully qualified clinical supervisor, working with individuals or groups from an integrative perspective.

Individual Supervision:

I provide 1:1 clinical supervision with an emphasis on working relationally; enabling growth, challenge, and above all, promoting the practitioner's own trust in self. My understanding is that effective clinical supervision is suitably supportive and stretching, with openness to understanding parallel processes where they appear in the work. I work gently and with respect for all included in the process of the work reviewed. I have a strong commitment to working ethically and safely, with reference to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and the College of Sexual & Relationship Therapist's Code of Ethics. I place great value in offering the opportunity for the supervisee to develop their own wisdom in response to the range of dilemmas that may occur in their clinical work. 

Please get in touch if you would like to arrange an initial meeting, free of charge, to explore whether we could work together.

I offer Group and Individual Supervision for practitioners within organisations, or NGOs working in therapeutic or associated helping roles - please contact me to discuss the formulation of a Service Level Agreement specific to the needs of your organisation.

Professional Memberships: BACP & COSRT

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.
