Supervision details

Thank you for visiting the supervision section of my profile. I am BACP(Senior Accredited) as well as NSC(Senior Accredited), I have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy, BA(Hons) Counselling, PG-Dip Clinical Supervision and am EMDR Accredited. I have over 15000 clinical hours and over 4000 supervision hours.

Clinical Supervision (Taking your Clinical practice to the next level)

Supervision can look like lots of things. For therapists, clinical supervision should be a safe, vibrant and dynamic environment, a place of sharing, reflexivity and learning. I like conducting supervision where we explore different therapeutic approaches and gaining new psychological perspectives. I can work with your placement and training institution as well as give guidance in terms of your academic work. My clinical supervisees range from students to very senior therapists and supervisors. We can meet for 1½ hours once a month or 1 hour bi-weekly session depending on your need. I work Integratively and have lots of experience working within schools, adult services and within private practice. Additionally, I support therapists going through the accreditation process. My supervisees tell me the sessions are fun, equipping and invigorating. I can supervise those who work in schools or with young people, I have over 25 years experience working with young people as well as navigating complex safeguarding issues. 

Supervision for Charities and other Frontline workers (Providing support for Frontline workers)

For frontline workers, supervision can indeed be a place where they learn new techniques or more effective ways of working with their service users, but it’s also a place where I seek to help them to unburden themselves from the difficult and draining stories that they often hear and experience. Its a place of learning and reflection. It’s also important to offer frontline workers a space to talk about and explore the struggles in their personal and work life that has impacted them. Having this confidential space can increase overall resilience and mental health. It’s considered good practice for any front-line agency or school dealing with complex issues within their service users, to have monthly supervision for their staff to avoid burnout.

Training, qualifications & experience:

As a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist I have counselled thousands of people with all kinds of presenting problems from various backgrounds. I lead workshops and training events across London. I consult and clinically supervise staff from a variety of frontline agencies, as well as supervising a large number of other therapists. Finally, I also provide therapeutic support for the Police, the Intelligence services and those within the music industry.

I offer online supervision which I can be flexible with in terms of days and times. I offer face to face appointments for those willing to travel to HP1. I am specialist trained in Trauma Work, Rape, Abuse, Sexual Abuse, addictions.

I charge £80 per hour, £120 per hour and a half (£70 per hour / £105 for an hour and a half for Students or for those on low income)

If you would like me to work with you then please phone me on: 07939 985158 or email me at lee@recoveringmind.co.uk

Additionally, If you have any questions about whether I’m the right supervisor for you, then please don't hesitate to call.

I really look forward to working with you.

Thank you

BACP
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.

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.
