Supervision details

I have worked as a counsellor for over 8 years gaining experience of various issues, specialising in Trauma.  I have a supervision qualification approved by the National Psychological Society.   I work in an integrative way, enabling me to work appropriately to help to develop my supervisees client work.   As a Registered Accredited Counsellor and qualified Supervisor, I have over 8 years of full-time counselling experience gained in a number of settings; Private Practice, Further & Higher Education and EAP’s. I have supervised, qualified and trainee Counsellors. Supervision is an integral part of my work as a Counsellor and as your Supervisor I will provide supervision for the reflection and consideration of the counselling process with your clients and issues related to that work, ensuring a supportive, safe and ethical environment for you to explore and clarify thinking and feeling which underlie practice. To ensure clients best interests are protected, I will highlight unethical concerns/practice or blocks and help you to manage risk. To foster a climate of mutual respect, empathic understanding and honesty where we can explore and clarify our hopes, fears and expectations concerning our working relationship. I work with students and qualified counsellors and my counselling experience is with Adults and Children and young people.  Meetings I am able to see supervisees face to face at my covid safe premises in Lincoln city centre or online via Zoom. Location I am located in Lincoln City centre at Involve well-being Centre. 12 Mint Lane, Lincoln LN1 1UD. I will be offering  appointments at RAF Scampton in the near future, Covid allowing. Please ask for details. Supervision Fees I charge the following for my services; £45 per session Students £30 per session

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.

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.
