Supervision details

My work as a Supervisor is very much informed by Transactional Analysis & Relational Integrative theory.

I supervise Counsellors & Psychotherapists from a wide range of theoretical approaches. 

I completed my Supervision training at The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy in January 2015.  I have completed further training in Group Supervision and hold a certificate in LGBTQ+ informed Supervision. 

I offer Supervision for both qualified and student Counsellors & Psychotherapists. I supervise therapists working with individuals, couples, and groups.

I have extensive experience providing individual and group supervision in a number of different settings, including:

  • Supervision for qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists in private practice.
  • Individual Supervision for trainees on a variety of training courses and clinical placements.
  • Individual Supervision for practitioners working within the NHS.
  • Individual & Group Supervision within Drug & Alcohol Services.
  • Group Supervision within Eating Disorder Services. 

Supervision is not only for exploring client work but also support for the practitioners well-being

Areas you may wish to explore:

• Vicarious trauma, burnout & compassion fatigue - including ways to help prevent this. 

• Building your therapy practice. 

• Imposter syndrome & self doubt. 

The fee for individual supervision is:

£90 per hour.

The fee for group supervision varies depending on the number of supervisees in the group & the duration of the session. If you are interested in joining a group, please get in touch.

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.
