Supervision details

I offer professional supervision in person and remotely to trainee and qualified counsellors both during the day and the evenings. I believe that supervision needs to take place in an environment of openness and trust. My own experience is that having a strong relationship with one's supervisor is crucial in terms of personal and professional growth and for self care. I offer a free initial  hour appointment  in order for you to decide whether we can work together. I also offer supervision by telephone and Zoom. £70 per 90 minute session. Reduced rate (£53 per 90 minutes) available for trainee/student counsellors.

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.
