Supervision details

The main task of supervision To create a learning and collaborative relationship. This enables the development of a trusted and safe haven to explore practice and have insights of another therapist.  I use the 'Shohet and Hawkins' seven eyed model of supervision.  It involves the unbiased monitoring of the work between you, your clients, and myself, with the view of reducing the risk of oversight, whilst also helping you to reflect on your own feelings, thoughts and behaviours regarding the work being done.

I hope to create a relational place where we can work together developing you personally and professionally.  I offer Integrative & person-centred ways of working for counsellors and students or people in the caring profession and charity work needing non-managerial supervision.  I see people who are working in a range of areas including placements in schools (working with clients aged 12yrs onwards)

Fees £55.00 /1.5hrs monthly. Discounted to £50 for students

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
