Training & Philosophy
Having trained at Re-Vision as a supervisor, I absolutely believe that supervision is a significant cornerstone of the therapeutic space and is there to support both the supervisee’s practice and their client work. My philosophy is firmly rooted within The Seven Eyed Model of Supervision (Hawkins and Shohet, 2012) integrating transpersonal/psychosynthesis theory and understanding. This allows room for creativity and intuition in working with the soul and what it means to work with this both within us and within the therapeutic space. I often work with the imagination, the body, and what stories it holds, as well as talking through therapeutic work to make sense of the many dual processes that are at play.
The supervisory relationship is complex and interesting. There are dynamics of envy and power that interlink with our clients material and that of our own. The seven eyed model really facilitates holding these complex aspects in such a way that enables the challenging aspects of supervision to be held and brought into conscious awareness.

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.

Accredited Register Scheme
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).
