I offer supervision in the following approaches: Person-Centred, Relational, Creative (with the use of drawing, symbolic objects and creative media to explore the therapeutic relationship) from my therapy room in central Leeds or online via Zoom.
I am a registered, accredited BACP member. My diploma training was at Leeds Metropolitan University (now Leeds Beckett Uni, 2008-10) and I remain passionate about the Relational Approach to therapy. I have also enjoyed immersing myself in a number of different contexts for group work and personal development since qualifying all of which have informed my way of being in the therapy room.
Between 2011 & 2013 I worked with Christine Kennett of the York Psychotherapy centre in an 'Integrating Gestalt' group, between 2014 and 2017 I regularly attended full weekend workshops and training courses with Creative Connections in Cumbria where I was deeply influenced by the facilitation of Dinah Brown, who trained with Carl Roger’s daughter Natalie Rogers in Person Centred Expressive Arts Therapy. My supervision training was with the Jenny Biancardi consultancy and is accredited by the British Psychodrama Association.
I have been working in private practice for a decade, formerly spending four years at the student counselling service at Leeds Beckett Uni. Previous roles have included managing a community outreach service, managing a complementary therapy centre and running art and play workshops in a specialist setting for children with autism.
I charge £50/hour for supervision. £75 for 1.5 hours.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
