I provide clinical supervision for trainees, recently-qualified and experienced practitioners. I am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor. Hawkins & Shohet's Process Model of Supervision, Proctor's Model of Supervision (Learning, Support and Accountability), along with psychodynamic, transactional analysis, person-centred and solution-focussed modalities of counselling and psychotherapy, inform my work. My working style is one of collaboration, whilst being mindful of differences in responsibilities, role, age, gender etc. in any supervisory relationship. I work in an integrative way which means I use utilise knowledge, theories and experience in an individually-tailored way to help you make sense of and develop your practice. I have particular expertise in areas of difference and diversity (esp gender dysphoria, gender, sexual and relationship diversity), and the impact of early separation on adult relationships. My expectations of you as a potential supervisee are that you will have professional indemnity insurance (either personally or via the organisation you work for) and that you are a member of a professional organisation, such as the BACP, and abide by its code of ethics. I offer an introductory session to discuss your requirements for supervision, to clarify frequency of sessions based on your caseload, experience, accreditation requirements and to give us the opportunity to establish how we might work together. I supervise counsellors at Leicester LGBT Centre, and have several years' experience of providing individual supervision, in addition to personal experiences of receiving individual, peer and group supervision. Therapy Rooms for RentI have versatile ground, first and second floor therapy rooms (accessibility info: door widths 75 and 69 cm) available to use for ad hoc, regular single sessions, regular morning, afternoon or evening blocks or regular days. The rooms are furnished suitable for use with individual clients (adults and young people), couples, family/systemic therapy, group supervision, group training, personal development groups, and mentoring/coaching.

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 membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
