Supervision details

As a counsellor, the collaborative working relationship of supervision has been key in my development as a practitioner.  Being trusted as a therapist means I can bring all of my work and myself to my supervisor, so we engage in the process together.   My theoretical approaches include: Inskipp and Proctor and Hawkins and Shohet. 

Initial Contact

I suggest that we have a brief Zoom session, to see if how I work sounds like it would suit you.  If we decide to meet, my usual practice is to suggest an initial 3 sessions and then review how our work is going. 

I hold a few discounted places in my practice and offer a discounted rate for 3 months for those starting their private practice.

I follow BACP's ethical framework, which includes as good practice that all supervisors have access to consultation  for their supervisory work.

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.
