Supervision details

I am a Psychodynamic / Integrative Supervisor with a wpf  Post Qualification Certificate in Supervision (See My supervision practice is based on Hawkins and Shohet's seven eyed model where the scope of what is thought about and explored in supervision includes the internal processes of, and the relationships between all three participants: the client, the counsellor / supervisee and myself as supervisor.

I am offering individual or group supervision for qualified or trainee counsellors who are working with adult clients. Sessions need to be fortnightly or weekly and can be face to face (ideally) or via Zoom.  My rate is £50 an hour but I can offer a discount to trainees.

Since 2015 I have facilitated Group Training Supervision (GTS) sessions for students on Higher Education counselling training courses at Gloucestershire College and I bring this experience into my work with qualified supervisees. GTS is primarily about helping student counsellors link their academic learning to what is happening with their clients but it also often strays into areas normally covered by clinical supervision (e.g. ethical practice, counsellor self care, safeguarding, advice on managing boundaries etc).

As with my approach to teaching, I aim to be supportive and encouraging and to facilitate a learning environment that allows for the individual needs of supervisees.

Although my original training was psychodynamic, the courses I teach at Gloucestershire College are integrative. Over the years my counselling practice has been influenced and expanded to encompass much of the person centred and relational approaches I have taught.  And the next step in my process has been to bring this into my work with supervisees - hence my use of the Seven Eyed model.

I am happy to arrange an initial discussion or answer any questions you may have about what I can offer you as a Supervisor.

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.
