Supervision details

High quality supervision is crucial to ensuring that our work meets the needs of clients. This is the foundation of a stable and viable practice.  As your supervisor I will: support you to embed your learning foster trust in your judgement and knowledge.

As my supervisee I offer you: an encouraging and none-shame based learning environment foster independent thinking explore and observe client work from several perspectives (7 eyes model) use the body (experiential work) mind, imagination and feelings to make sense of the work a willingness to dwell in the unknown until a new perspective emerges a collaborative structure (contract, agenda, goals) integrating different theoretical orientations focusing on ethics and promoting accountability actively promoting self-care

My ethos I have distilled the most effective methods/approach combined with my integrative supervision training. It has evolved from over a decade of experience as a supervisee and as an an active participant of peer supervision groups. I continue to refine my methods and acquire new knowledge as my supervision practice expands.  I believe that supervision is most successful in a collaborative space with minimal direction. My practice flourishes when I am free to set the agenda and the supervisor balances tentative interventions with empathic challenges. This allows me to reach my own conclusions. I have experienced the opposite too and it was a very painful  lesson that taught me to respect the supervisee’s process and to become directive only when in the client’s best interest.  My Story Since 2009 I have successfully helped many people tackle a wide range of issues. I have many satisfied clients. Some return from time to time when faced with new challenges. Working with my current supervisor has taught me to trust my own experience and knowledge more fully. Being part of peer supervision groups has helped me realise how much I enjoy supporting colleagues to gain different insights into their work. Training as a supervisor then felt like a natural progression. I was ready to share my learning and support colleagues to develop their practice.  My fee is £60 for a full hour or £80 for 1.5 hrs - a reduction applies for block payment of six sessions or more.

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.
