Supervision details

For myself, the most important part of Supervision is the relationship I have between myself and my Supervisee. This is an important part of my Private Practice and my own work with counselling clients. It is key to the work we will do together. Counselling is by its very nature a ‘lonely’ job that can involve little interaction with others outside of the clients themselves. This means that it can sometimes be difficult to monitor and track progress and stop you from getting into ‘bad habits.’ Supervision provides a space for you to properly acknowledge and challenge any blind spots in your practice and think about you may handle situations better in the future. It encourages regular, ongoing reflection to ensure that you continue working in an ethical  and professional way. Being in supervision not only provides greater information about the client and how they are experiencing you,  but also increases your level of self-awareness and confidence.

Now abit about me. I work from my practice in Kingsdown. I have 15 years of experience of private practice. I have worked at a Grammar, a primary school for a few years, EKRCC and work alongside the majority of the local secondary schools. I work frequently with couples and the LGBTQ+ community.  I work face to face, telephone and online. I work integrally but lean heavily to psycho dynamic and attachment theory. I trained integratively and am an Accredited Counsellor.

My supervision rates are £50 per hour

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.
