Supervision details

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Supervision (BACP Endorsed). I am a registered accredited member of BACP, and I work within a Code of Ethics and Standards.

How I work;

To offer a safe and confidential space to share client work and feel supported in their practice, working with the individual need/level of experience of the supervisee in each session.

Good supervision is important; it should be ethical, authentic, and supportive - active, enlightening, and spontaneous: trusting the process and gaining more self-awareness through reflective practice. 

An introductory meeting for 1 hour is advisable to ensure we can establish a healthy professional relationship and both feel comfortable to work with the other. 

Current Supervision Fees;

  • Initial meeting - £40 (1 hour)                                                                            
  • Clinical supervision - £60 per hour, £90 per 1.5 hours  
  • Supervision for Counselling students - £75 per 1.5 hours (when cost to student)
  • Group supervision – £60 per hour split between group of 2-3. Please contact for fees of groups over 3.

Fees are subject to annual review.

Formats offered: face-to-face, secure online via Zoom

Payments; Cash or credit/debit cards accepted - Payable at the end of each face-to-face session. For online supervision - Invoice & Bank Transfer 

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.
