As a Supervisor I believe Supervision should offer an enriching and stimulating experience, with creative exploration, where knowledge and understanding are shared in a collaborative manner. I aim to offer a supportive and safe environment, be open and honest in an encouraging way and be proactive in providing insight. My theoretical approach to supervision is guided by the framework of Hawkins and Shohet’s seven eyed process model, a reflective and relational approach, workable with any counselling or psychanalytical modality.
At present, alongside private practice, I supervise trainee therapists at a large London Agency and an entity where staff are working with young people, offering both group and individual supervision.
In the past I have created affordable counselling services at two Children's Centres and a Mental Health Trust, so can help with anyone wanting to set up such projects. For the last twenty-five years I have worked in either education or families and children's social care, where I have gained experience which enhances the work.
I offer supervision for work with individuals, couples, families and young people. For both experienced and trainee practitioners. Supervision is available at a cost of £55 per hour on a sliding scale for student counsellors and newly qualified practitioners setting up own practice.
Twice monthly (45 min) in line with BACP requirements of 1.5 h monthly supervision, is available if preferred.
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.
