Supervision details

My current Supervisees encompass many areas of the helping professions including Trainee Counsellors, Qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists, Hospice Management and Pastoral and Medical Professionals. My PG Diploma Supervision training has encompassed elements of Group, Psychotherapeutic, Integration of Approaches and the Fundamentals of Supervision. My personal approach integrates Humanistic, Psychodynamic, TA and PC theories and principles, in particular, meeting developmental and relational trauma and unmet needs using my knowledge of those theories. I have personal experience of various Supervision environments, individual, group and peer both in Private Practice, agencies and charities. My own Supervision covers my work with adults (including couples), adolescents and children from 5 years of age. I work from a Developmental, Attachment-based and reparative perspective and consider how relational trauma may inform clients experiences and behaviours. I also use creative methods if you are open to that way of working. Sessions available through Microsoft Teams/other video options and telephone as well as a limited number of face-to-face sessions. We can also use a hybrid approach of on-line and face-to-face where agreed.

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.
