Supervision details

My approach is to pay deep regard to my supervisees'  relationships with their clients,  and to supervisees personal resonances with their clinical work.  Together we can 'unpick' episodes with clients to deepen and widen your sense of what is happening in meetings so that you as supervisee are as grounded, present and congruent as possible in the service of your clients.   We may explore PC theory and ethical concerns when appropriate. I encourage embodied exploration, dream work and creative play as ways to explore your clinical dilemmas.  I often work with 'parts'  as a way to differentiate emotional processes in clients.  I have deep respect for your spiritual growth and awareness.  I hope to provide a space where as a supervisee you can explore all aspects of your clinical work and self, in relation to work,  in a safe grounded and mutually responsible relationship.  

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
