Supervision details

I have been a supervisor for several years and have supervised both students and qualified counsellors. I am an accredited member of the BACP and hold a level 6 qualification in Counselling. I also hold a BPS Approved Certificate in Clinical Supervision.

Areas I help with:-

Feel supported in your clinical work

Learn new techniques to use in your practice

Improve your skills and effectiveness with clients

Improve your confidence

Strengthen and develop your therapeutic approach

-Explore and resolve concerns you have with your work in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment

Support your professional development

Together we will manage aspects of safeguarding clients, including ethical decisions

I follow Proctor’s 3 Function Interactive Model as my basis within supervision sessions which has a focus on:-

Development – Strengthening the supervisee’s skills, knowledge, insight, reflection, and confidence.

Normative – Helping the supervisee to ensure their practice is of an appropriate standard and ethical benchmarks are met.

Supportive – Giving emotional support and encouragement.

I feel supervision should encourage growth and self-awareness within your practice, promoting client safety and enhancing your work. I have knowledge and experience in the following areas - Grief and traumatic loss, anxiety, depression, cancer, stress, panic, LGBTQ and relationship issues including domestic abuse.   I have worked in a hospice setting, a specialist bereavement service, NHS IAPT, Acute Cancer services and a University setting. I adhere to and work within the BACP Ethical Codes of Practice.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact me on 07544 518276 I'm able to offer day and evening appointments including home visits if access is an issue. ​

Please get in touch to discuss availability and costs.

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.
