My goal is to help practitioners grow and develop whilst facilitating safe ethical practice. I have been working as a Clinical Supervisor for over 15 years in various organisations that offer crisis interventions and counselling online and over the phone such as Shout and Childline/ NSPCC. I currently am the safeguarding lead and clinical supervisor at Spill and a clinical supervisor at Safety Net UK. Supervising, I helped counsellors and allied mental health professionals and volunteers in frontline services at different stages of their development to learn, reflect on practice, grow as practitioners, and expand their knowledge and capacity to be able to offer best practice for their clients - whilst also supporting their own needs in the process. In Private Practice, I enjoy working with a variety of practitioners to support their growth and learning whilst holding space for them to find their own voice and own ways of working. I want to empower you to be more available to yourself, so you can be more available to your clients. I hold a Certificate in Supervision (Level 7) from Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy. Since then, I have enjoyed training with Robin Shohet and Joan Wilmot and my supervision practice has been largely shaped by their philosophies. I offer: Supervision for practitioners who work face-to-face, online (incl counselling and messaging) and via phone. Experience of working with children and young people in therapeutic and supervisory capacity, as well as adults. A wealth of knowledge and experience in crisis intervention, safeguarding and defensible decision making. Supervision for practitioners, trainees and allied professionals who work with young people and adults, groups and couples. I use an integrative framework to best suit the needs of clients and practitioners. I specialised in working with Trauma and Neurodivergence. I work in an inclusive manner, and welcome interest from neurodivergent practitioners, LGBTQ+Community, and ethnic minorities.
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.
