Supervision details

I am a Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist with a background in working with young people as well as couples and individuals.  I also work with addictions and specialise in working with sex addiction. I can offer supervision for counsellors working with: Young people, individuals,  couples, psychosexual therapy and addictions. I became a supervisor with Relate in 2015 where I supervised 20 counsellors working with young people, couples, individuals, and sex therapy.

I currently supervise in Private Practice supporting practitioners and trainees working in the NHS, charitable organisations and in private practice. Between them they work with young people, families, adults, both individually and with couples.  The work covered includes, bereavement, sexual issues, mental health, relationship and sexual violence.

My fee is £55 per hour and is negotiable, dependant on the counsellors status. I work via Zoom, WhatsApp and telephone as well as face to face either at your place of work or at my office in Ross-on-Wye.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
