Supervision details

What you will receive from supervision is a place for you to explore your client work. Giving you the time to talk through concerns and champion your successes.  Supervision is a learning experience, and both you and I will learn and grow together, whether you are new to client work or experienced in the field, my approach is collaborative, and I look to grow our relationship using both mine and your experiences building trust and openness. 

My supervisory experience is within the fields of couples, individuals, sex and substance addiction, psychosexual client work, both couples and individuals and partner support work, for the partners of sex or substance addicts. 

If you would like group supervision, please contact me as I’m looking to start a group in the near future.  My fee for 90 minutes is £80.  Looking forwards to hearing from you.   

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.
