As an experienced practitioner and supervisor with an extensive clinical background, I offer individual and group supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors/therapists. I welcome supervisees from diverse backgrounds practising in a variety of settings and informed by different modalities.
Drawing on my own clinical work of more than a decade, ongoing training and CPD, substantial experience as a supervisor of mindfulness practitioners and facilitators, my approach is integrative and relational.
The supervision I offer is in line with the BACP ethical guidelines; supported by regular, in-depth integrative and mindfulness-based supervision; and underpinned by my clinical and personal mindfulness-based and compassion-focused practices.
My focus is to work with you collaboratively in developing and maintaining a self-reflective therapy/counselling practice: challenging you where appropriate and supporting you in regularly reviewing your self-regulation and self-care. I encourage exploration of unconscious processes in what may be going on within both the therapeutic and supervisory relationship. I will bring curiosity, engagement and empathetic support to you in delivering your client work and shaping your clinical practice. I am steady, open, knowledgeable, intuitive, and have experience across different theoretical frameworks.
My training is integrative: originally in Psychosynthesis, from where my practice has continued to deepen, broaden and embrace developments in contemporary thinking and include other integrative, mindfulness- and compassion-focused, body-based and phenomenological approaches (theoretical and experiential) in relation to both individual and group work. Fees: £65 for a 50-minute supervision session (normally Tues afternoon).
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.
