Supervision details

My job as supervisor is to make sure you are safe to practice: are you safe for the client, and are you safe for yourself?

For the client: are you counselling ethically, working within your confidence and competence? Are you up to date with your CPD? 

For yourself: My first question every month is “How are you?” Not as in “I'm fine, how are you?” but really how are you? Are you safe to practice? Are you tired, overworked, stressed? Are your personal and professional lives bleeding into each other?

I'll actively encourage reflection on your practice. What did you do well? What did you learn? What would you do different?

Here's some questions I ask myself. I'll ask you the same questions:

  • Is your client safe in your care?
  • Are you more interested in accumulating your hours for accreditation/making money than in working ethically?
  • Are you outside your level of confidence and competence?
  • What aren't you telling me about this client? 
  • Are you seeing too many clients?
  • Can you say no to more clients?
  • What's your plan for personal and professional development?

If you're looking for a collaborative approach to supervision, where you will be challenged in a safe, supportive environment, please call me.

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.
